National Instruments Migrates 165K Content Items from Jive to Microsoft 365

Client Profile

National Instruments is an American multinational company that produces automated test equipment and virtual instrumentation software. It is headquartered in Austin, Texas and its operations span internationally.

Situation

National Instruments wanted to move select Jive places and related content to their Microsoft 365 tenant.

Solution

Partnered with the client to rationalize Jive content to be migrated; utilized ThreeWill’s Jive to SharePoint migration utilities to extract, transform and load the selected content (~165,000 items) within Jive to SharePoint online.

Business Benefits

  • Project supported National Instrument’s overall strategy to move toward one content management system and eliminate Jive licensing costs.
  • Implemented a solution that:
    • ​Maintained a flat content structure – e.g. no subsites – as recommended by Microsoft,
    • Utilized Microsoft’s Modern sites format versus Classic, and
    • Utilized out-of-the-box Microsoft 365 capabilities, versus implementing custom functionality that would increase ongoing maintenance costs
