Whenever you need to move content to or within SharePoint, you need to decide which tools are right for the task. The choice of the tools is determined by your migration strategy.

In this paper, we look at how Migration Suite compares to native Microsoft tools and methods in addressing key business requirements for the following projects:

- Reorganization and consolidation of SharePoint content, Exchange Public Folders and Windows file shares
