The following are frequently asked questions about the SharePoint 2016 migration. As the project progresses, we will add more FAQs.
That is correct. As were preparing for the technical migration, we encountered a major technical roadblock. Without getting into details, it is an issue of how we share directory information with Microsoft Office 365 (O365) in the cloud.
No, not yet. Instead, we are going to implement an alternative. Our IT friends at UMSL are now in the process of implementing SharePoint 2016 on campus. (Note: we use SharePoint 2010.) Using high-speed Internet links, they will host our site collections there.
We expect the migration to begin early next year. We are working on the project plan now to firm up dates.
You probably did a lot already. See the Pre-migration of Site Collection information here. In general, you need to clean old content consistent with University of Missouri records retention policies.

Yes. UMSL will calculate a new rate as part of the project.
