Reduce Google Workspace migration friction

Many providers are raising cloud storage costs and many businesses are switching to cheaper storage and better teamwork tools. But migrating without a strong partner can be a challenge. DryvIQ can easily address some of the most pressing challenges while migrating files to Google Workspace.

Analyze your data before migrating

Manual migration methods lack scanning abilities to identify data islands, flag remediation, or permissions insights. Understanding this data is crucial for planning a successful Google Workspace migration.

With DryvIQ’s Google Workspace migration tool, you can analyze and simulate your project before transfer. Before migration, you can discover potential challenges without moving a single file. With DryvIQ, organizations understand exactly what the migration will look like, and fix potential problems before they occur.

Easily manage user permissions across platforms

User permissions can differ greatly between Google Workspace and other platforms. As a result, there is no way to automatically map them when using manual or basic migration methods. The DryvIQ platform can transform and map user accounts and group permissions to Google Workspace at scale.

Google Drive supports very complex ownership permission structures that don’t translate well to other cloud content repositories. Many users in Google Drive work with files and folders that have different permissions than the top-level folder.

For example, permissions in Google and OneDrive seem similar; they both follow the concept of owner, editor, and reader. However, both platforms differ in the way they store content.

But it doesn’t end there. Organizations can apply the differences discussed below to most other cloud repositories. For these examples, we will be comparing Google’s permissions to Microsoft’s OneDrive for Business.

To put it simply, Google Drive stores data in one, centralized location. Google Drive uses permission levels on the drives, folders, and documents to build a dynamic user interface. However, this can make for some complex Google Workspace migrations.

Migrating native Google Drive file types

Google is one of the platforms with its own proprietary file types with its online editing suite. The three primary file types that are integral to Google Workspace migrations are Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets. With DryvIQ, you can implement configurable features to accommodate many different migration scenarios.

Automatically remediate Google Workspace file transfer errors

Manual file remediation after failed transfers is time-consuming and risky. Organizations risk losing file fidelity, history, or attributes due to incompatible name lengths, characters, or sizes between Google Workspace and other platforms.

DryvIQ offers a pre-remediation process to identify files it cannot migrate ahead of time. In cases like this, the DryvIQ platform can automatically truncate file path lengths or transform conflicting file names. In more complicated instances of incompatibility, DryvIQ will flag the administrator for any files requiring manual correction.

Eliminate business disruption during migration

During your Google Workspace migration, employees may not be able to access content. Relying on end-users to move files themselves or a sudden cutover without a transition period harms business operations.

The DryvIQ platform’s real-time file synchronization eliminates this issue. DryvIQ calls this continuous copy, which constantly streams changes in files, folders, and even deletes between source and destination. The synchronization period aids change management and boosts user adoption, making users familiar with the new platform before migration.
