Beezy announces Office 365 integration and migration tools for Jive and IBM Connections
Beezy, the preferred enterprise social collaboration solution for SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013, announced today the availability of Beezy for Office 365, with support for migration from Beezy on-premises to the cloud, and from competitive social platforms Jive and IBM Connections to Office 365. Beezy is the only social tool provider built on SharePoint that supports social collaboration on-prem, in the cloud, and in hybrid SharePoint deployments. Additionally, Beezy is the only solution providing migration options between platforms.
Beezy has a long history of delivering the best social collaboration solutions to SharePoint on-prem customers. Its unmatched user experience fosters collaboration, improves internal communications and ultimately boosts SharePoint adoption and employee productivity. Some of the Beezy rich social features include Microblogging, Idea Elevation, Wikis, Polls, Q&A, Praises, Gamification, Expertise Finder, Ask the Experts, and setup of the Beezy solution is quick and easy.
With its new Office 365 release, Beezy is also the first company to provide migration tools from competitive platforms, such as Jive, IBM Connections, Sitrion (formerly NewsGator), and from Yammer, giving customers an integrated experience and the flexibility to move to the cloud at their own speed.
"Interest in SharePoint continues to grow and expand, but so does interest in rich social and user friendly collaboration capabilities,? said Jordi Plana, Beezy founder and CEO. "We are all-in for the cloud, but some customers want the option to remain on-premises, which is why there is so much interest in the hybrid deployment model, allowing companies to continue to get value out of their existing infrastructure investments. Beezy provides the most robust and comprehensive social collaboration solution for SharePoint on-premises, but now also supports the same capability in Office 365, as well as a simple process to migrate to the cloud.?
Christian Buckley, Office 365 MVP and globally-recognized SharePoint and social technology expert, shared, "The Microsoft social roadmap meets many customer use cases, but for many on-prem and hybrid SharePoint customers, it does not fit their needs. The Beezy solution is complementary, providing features and capabilities beyond what SharePoint and Yammer can provide. And Beezy can be credited for many customer wins for SharePoint and Office 365 where there were social requirements beyond what Microsoft was able to offer.?
Beezy is an exhibitor (Booth #615) at the sold-out inaugural Microsoft Ignite event taking place May 4-8 at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago. The team will be available to provide demonstrations of the latest Office 365 features and discuss migration capabilities.
