 How dSHIFT Migrator works
 dSHIFT Migrator for SharePoint® acts as a black box to migrate all data including sites/lists/template

 and security to the target SharePoint environment. Following diagram explains how dSHIFT

 Migrator works




     Source                                                       Destination
    Platform                                                       Platform




Communication
  with service                                                                                        Communication
                                                                                                        with service

 NOTE [The above diagram tells that we need to install dSHIFT Migrator Service on Source

 and Destination platform. And where we want to install Migrator, we don’t need to install dSHIFT

 Migrator Service. Migrator can work remotely (as shown in the above diagram) and also
 we can install it on either Source or Destination WSS/ MOSS/ SharePoint 2010 Platform.]

workspaces, information stores and documents, as well as host defined applications such as
wikis and blogs. All users can manipulate proprietary controls called "web parts" or interact
with pieces of content such as lists and document libraries.
