Microsoft SharePoint
Migration to 2016

Get more time to migrate to SharePoint Online with an intermediate step to supported SharePoint 2016.


Organisations throughout Australia are planning to upgrade their SharePoint on premise systems to the cloud, specifically SharePoint Online. This migration represents one of the most sought-after services provided by Pack of 7. However, we also recognize another critical need in this endeavour.

The direct upgrade to SharePoint Online can be a time-consuming process, often spanning several months, and in some cases, even exceeding a year. As Microsoft has ceased support for SharePoint 2013, the urgency for prompt action is evident. It's noteworthy that both SharePoint 2016 and 2019 share the same extended support end date, which is July 14, 2026. Therefore, upgrading from older versions to either 2016 or 2019 offers a cost-effective interim solution, ensuring continued support and allowing ample time for the eventual migration to SharePoint Online.

In 9 steps to your SharePoint 2016 farm

Pack of 7 specializes in migrating SharePoint systems from version 2013 to either 2016 or 2019. We follow a well-established and dependable nine-step process, taking you from an initial system assessment to the successful deployment of your new server farm:​

For small and large farms

In case you have a small farms with minimal complexity, we can tailor the process accordingly. However, for larger farms, we strongly recommend following all nine steps to ensure a successful migration.

For small farms, our past experiences have shown that we can complete migrations to SharePoint 2016 in less than ten person-days. In contrast, the process for large farms can extend to as much as 50 person-days or more, depending on the complexities of the current system and any additional requirements that go beyond a straightforward system copy.

Throughout this migration process, many of our customers also request adjustments to their system that go beyond mere error correction, preparing them for the subsequent transition to SharePoint Online.
