A mitigator of SharePoint's biggest risk....
At Habanero Consulting, we've used it many times for internally SharePoin migrations and upgrades and for our clients' migration needs also.
The (very) simple setup and easy drag and drop user interface masks the complexity and the time-consuming nature of the task at hand. It takes care of background worries like keeping versioning information, user information, and so on.....
A Simple Tool with Loads of Power
An amazingly simple tool that provides huge amounts of power. Site Migration Manager (SMM) gives the user a simple copy and paste interface to copy items from one site collection to another. The user is able to copy everything from, multiple webs, single webs, webparts, pages, lists, list views, down to single items. A configuration menu before each copy begins provides the user with the ability to customize how the copy is performed: ignore certain items, certain libraries, map content columns, copy permissions, do not copy webparts, the options are very powerful. A with a simple clean interface which puts alot of power in the hands of its user.
*Copy and Paste interface provide a simple interface for copying over huge amounts of content from one area to another - user can copy Sites, Lists, Permissions, Views, SPListItems

*Product team is easily accessible and answers emails in a prompt fashion.
An indispensable tool
SharePoint technologies are very powerful, but are missing some easy-to-use management facilities - particularly in migrating content from one deployment to another, either in batches or one document library or list at a time. The Metalogix SharePoint Site Migration Manager is an excellent solution to this problem. I have used the tool on several occasions, to manage both small and large migrations. I find its utility to be indispensable.
IMHO every SharePoint administrator should have a copy of this tool.
