You can go with free or go with proven
M3 Suite™ for Office and Microsoft’s Telemetry are each MS Office file conversion tools designed to assist customers when migrating Office 2003 and Office 2007 files to Office 2010 and Office 2013.
While Microsoft offers Telemetry as a free upgrade assessment tool, it downplays early, comprehensive file discovery and corresponding risk planning. Instead, Microsoft ultimately promotes a reactive approach to fixing conflicts identified by users.
Such an avoidance strategy and the related technical flaws in Microsoft’s recommended migration upgrade plan can result in undue delays and productivity losses for end users, increase demand for IT support and hide true remediation costs.
Microsoft’s recommendation for passive testing for migration issues is flawed
Successful Office migrations require carefully planned processes that identify areas of risk and testing files in advance for conflicts
Our suite of tools arms IT managers with the information needed to plan and execute an efficient, well-managed Office 2010 or 2013 deployment and file migration.
Our suite of tools support migration best practices that help enterprise organizations overcome file-compatibility deployment hurdles presented by newer versions of Office.
These solutions gather and catalog information related to data quality and the nature of use of enterprise files, which gives enterprises precise and actionable decision support for migration planning.
