Microsoft has recently released its latest version of SharePoint Migration tool available free of cost to their customers.
You can use Microsoft’s SharePoint Migration tool to migrate content (folders and documents) to SharePoint Online along with basic metadata. However, the Microsoft SharePoint migration tool may fall short if you have a complex or metadata intensive migration to perform. For example, you may not be able to use this tool if the source SharePoint environment has been customized to suit specific business needs and has a complex metadata structure. Also it currently supports SharePoint 2013 as a source.
To explain this better, I gave a blog url for your reference below which explains about few important aspects of migration that may not be quite fully addressed by Microsoft’s SharePoint Migration tool, a complete list of migration features comparing Microsoft’s tool and Vyapin’s DocKit Migrator and certain important differences (pros and cons) between Microsoft’s tool and a third-party migration tool like Vyapin’s Dockit Migrator.
