Situation

PR Newswire decided to standardize on SharePoint online in Microsoft 365 as their internal collaboration platform. There was key content in Jive that needed to be maintained going forward on SharePoint in Microsoft 365. Additionally, the Jive license was set to expire in 2 months so it was critical for the migration to be completed before the license expiration.

Solution

ThreeWill leveraged it’s Jive to SharePoint Migration Utilities and Agile Migration process to migrate critical Jive content to Microsoft 365 before the expiration of the Jive licenses (project kick-off to migration completion was about 5 weeks).

Business Benefits

PR Newswire was able to save the annual cost of the Jive license fee (over 200K) and was able to move to a new, consolidated collaboration platform in Microsoft 365.  All critical content from the Jive platform was preserved and is now available for continued collaboration on the Microsoft 365 platform.
