100k SharePoint Site Collection Migration

Working with Ben Stegink, owner of Intelligink, I worked as a freelancer in the evenings to migrate numerous sites using the Sharegate tool.

Over a 3 month period I worked in the evenings, typically 8pm to 12am moving sites to SharePoint Online for Aptar. My responsibilities consisted of signing into the VPN each night and running a series of checks which were written in PowerShell to look at file extensions, names, and get necessary data needed to add to the new sites. I than migrated all version history, properties, and permissions mappings for each file using the Sharegate migration tool.
