Migrating from Shared Drives to SharePoint

    Hi all:

    I am wondering if anyone has strategy or planning documents, that can be shared?

    In my organization, SharePoint (SP) 2010 is used by our operational business units for collaboration and electronic document management. Our internal service business units (e.g. HR, Finance, Admin., Communications, etc.) are not on SP, and they use shared drives as electronic records repositories.

    I have convinced senior management that we need to migrate all employees to SP, with a view to enabling greater collaboration, increasing process efficiency and employee productivity, and reducing information-related risks.   

    Have you been in a similar situation?  Do you have any draft or approved business cases, feasibility studies, strategies or migration plans that you could share with me?

    Clearly, this is a significant undertaking, even though we are a relatively small organization. It will take  considerable effort to strategize and plan effectively. 

    Looking forward to your replies. Thanks.
