idXSharePoint 2007 Migration to SharePoint Online and increase user adoption 


Case Overview

idX is based in Saint Louis, Missouri and provides retail environment manufacturing. Since 1999, idX has provided a unique and turnkey approach to managing custom, complex, multi-location roll-outs coupled with logistics capabilities.

After numerous hard drive failures due to aging server equipment, Oakwood partnered with idX to plan and migrate a SharePoint 2007 on-prem environment to SharePoint Online. 


Business Challenges

idX needed to retire aging server equipment. They needed to implement a solution to prevent data loss and be under the Microsoft support umbrella. In addition to the equipment failures, an aging and outdated SharePoint platform created additional work and confusion for the end user. Further, a considerable amount of the site creation process was done manually. Another challenge for the business was the request, tracking and storage of material for the Estimating and Marketing departments.

  • Aging SharePoint on-prem environment and lack of user adoption. 

Solution

idX partnered with Oakwood to implement a solution to an aging SharePoint on-prem environment.  The client chose SharePoint Online as the new platform. Oakwood migrated idX data to SharePoint online using a third-party tool.  During the migration process some sites needed to be remediated due to outdated templates and web parts.  As the project progressed, it also become a rebranding and architecture redesign effort. This provided the client with a new modern UI that was more user friendly and increased user adoption.  Business processes were also enhanced with workflows and mobile applications.

  • Analysis of on-prem environment 
  • Migration of on premises SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint Online 
  • 500+ sites migrated to SharePoint Online 
  • Created custom search solution 
  • Rebranding to a modern UI architecture leveraging React 
  • PowerApps and Flow integration
