Microsoft focuses on providing a seamless move to Microsoft 365 with as much expertise and tooling we and our ecosystem can offer – across the globe. Our goal is to help move to the cloud with confidence.
Migration Manager – simplify file share migrations
Migration Manager is now generally available. It is a key part of the SharePoint admin center, to help orchestrate and simplify management of file share migrations. Admins can add and manage multiple migration agents to centrally orchestrate all migration activities.
Migration Manager lets you migrate your on-premises file share content to Microsoft 365. Through a simple interface within the SharePoint admin center, admins can manage thousands of migration tasks across multiple machines.

Mover – migrate from 3rd-party cloud providers
Mover supports migration from Amazon, Box, Dropbox, Egnyte, and Google– into OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams. This enables seamless file collaboration across Microsoft 365 apps and services, including the Office apps and Microsoft Teams. The Mover team also brings deep expertise and migration technology, which advances Microsoft’s commitment to providing organizations of all sizes with the right tools, people, and partners to successfully migrate to the Microsoft Cloud.
SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT) – accelerate on-premises migrations of SharePoint
The SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT) is a simple and fast solution to help you migrate content from on-premises SharePoint Server sites and file shares to SharePoint, OneDrive, and now Microsoft Teams in Microsoft 365. It is designed to help you bring your information to the cloud and take advantage of the latest collaboration, intelligence, and security solutions within Microsoft 365.
Using the SharePoint Migration Tool, you can quickly bring your most important content to Microsoft Teams to create a more open, digital environment. The tool makes it easy to select Teams that you are an owner of, to then set them as the destination(s) for the migration. The tool will also let you select what specific channel you want the content to go into. Parallel to SPMT is the SharePoint Migration Assessment Tool (SMAT), a simple command line executable that scans the contents of your SharePoint farm to help identify the impact of migrating your server to SharePoint with Microsoft 365.
