Product Review – Kernel Migrator for SharePoint

SharePoint is a great content management system, especially for large enterprises. It can be used to store documents, sheets, sites, and other essential data. But users often need to migrate their SharePoint data either to a newer version or to SharePoint Online cloud, which is not that simple.

I faced a similar scenario when I needed to upgrade from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2016. Trust me, the process is not that simple as it looks. First of all, the manual process is too complicated, and the outcome will be not be as good as one would expect. That’s why I preferred to move to third-party software – Kernel Migrator for SharePoint.
