5. Best Social Solution – Dell Software                                             Download (2)

Dell Software worked closely with Microsoft and our channel partners to gather requirements necessary to fill this huge hole in the market. Dell Migration Manager for Enterprise Social directly addresses the problem of maintaining too many social platforms by centralizing social content and collaboration in one place and migrating off Jive to Microsoft Yammer. Dell Software was first to market in the enterprise social migration space, and the alternative methods customers and partners have include:
– Copying and pasting manually, which is tedious and time-consuming with no guarantee of maintaining content fidelity, metadata or permissions.
– Custom scripting, which is a long, complex, error-prone and unpredictable process that requires specialized and expensive development resources.
In addition, Migration Manager for Enterprise Social takes Dell Software’s Office 365 migration and management portfolio to another level and further proves Dell’s commitment to helping customers fully leverage their Office 365 subscription plan and maximize ROI.
One of the big stories coming out of the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference is that Microsoft sales and channel partners will now be incented on Office 365 usage/consumption and adoption. There are so many Office 365 subscriptions not activated, and it’s a problem for Microsoft because many customers may not renew subscriptions for solutions they don’t use.


Dell is now uniquely positioned to help Microsoft and its partners increase adoption for the entire Office 365 platform. Dell combines award-winning solutions for Exchange, Lync, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business and Yammer with world-class experience, a vast partner ecosystem and global 24/7 support to round out the most complete, end-to-end Office 365 solution. With Dell customers get pre-migration readiness, migration and coexistence covering almost any source and target scenario you can imagine and post-migration management solutions that help with reporting and analytics, disaster recovery, compliance and auditing and security.
