For many organizations, moving to the cloud has been a priority, but the path has been difficult, and the cost and complexity of migrating content have been prohibitive. With content decentralized and residing in diverse file shares and legacy systems, businesses struggle to realize value from their content. At the same time, the urgent need to support remote work and digital operations has made modernizing their technology a requirement.

“Eighty-six percent of organizations plan to move a majority of their on-premises content to the cloud – and we expect that number to grow in light of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Holly Muscolino, Research Vice President, Content and Process Strategies and the Future of Work, IDC. “Organizations are looking for cost-effective ways to get to the cloud with as little business disruption as possible.”

With the all-new Box Shuttle, customers can:

  • Leverage on-premises and cloud connectors that allow petabyte-scale migration from more than 15 source systems, including file shares, SharePoint, OneDrive, Google Workspace, Egnyte, Documentum, OpenText, FileNet, and more to the Box Content Cloud
  • Partner with content migration experts to plan and execute migration projects, including a focus on organizational change to ensure end-user adoption and satisfaction
  • Re-map content to different owners, or modify permissions during migration – allowing for critical restructuring and reorganization with zero downtime
  • Preserve business-critical context about content with simple configurations that migrate existing metadata and file version history into Box
  • Accelerate the pace of migration to hundreds of terabytes per day with proprietary algorithms that optimize network utilization and API volumes to improve upload speed
  • Increase confidence with real-time migration reporting, visualization and event monitoring to provide insight into migration performance and outcome
