A Case study about the migration of client's internal information and document management system.
The client is a worldwide manufacturer and provider of precision instruments for many applications in research and development, quality control, production, logistics, and retail.
The company has more than 10,000 employees engaged in thousands of different projects. Departments have created an internal information and document management system for various projects based on Microsoft SharePoint, and they automate business processes via Nintex workflows.
This system consisted of several thousand internal company site collections and Nintex workflows that helped employees coordinate their daily activities and business processes. All information was stored on the company’s servers.
The client has decided to migrate its SharePoint 2016 platform to Microsoft 365 / SharePoint Online and move all processes related to Nintex workflows to the MS Power Platform. This task has been entrusted to Mitrix engineers.
Our task is to migrate workflows from Nintex to PowerAutomate. Initially, discovering all workflows manually took a long time. Therefore, we have implemented a utility that extracts all workflows from MS SharePoint site collections and subsites and builds an MS Excel report. Then we check with each site owner to find out which workflows need to be migrated. After creating these workflows with the required set of actions in PowerAutomate, we send them to the customer for UAT.
Most sites have already been migrated. We have received positive feedback from the customer stating that the workflows have been migrated successfully and that the new business processes are easier to use.
We continue to migrate workflows and provide support for the already developed solutions. We also consult users on MS SharePoint and Microsoft 365.
