Typically our conversations about migrating customer data to Office 365 start with messaging, i.e. how do I get my customer’s data from Exchange Server version X, Gmail, Lotus Notes, imap, etc to Exchange Online? We at Microsoft have many resources to assist you with your messaging migrations, but what about file migrations to SharePoint Online? What if your customer has an aging SharePoint server on-premises that they want to move to the cloud? I’ll be the first to admit that we have left partners pretty much on their own when it comes to migrating data to SharePoint Online. A typical Microsoft response is to recommend expensive third-party tools, which usually are cost prohibitive for smaller customers.
In the below recorded webinar, we discuss partner options for migrating data into SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. We are still recommending using third-party tools, however we showcase a few tools that are a perfect fit for partners serving the SMB space! We now have some very effective SharePoint migration solutions for our small and mid-size customers!

Thanks, it's very informative, I really like this article which provides good information related to migrate data from file servers to SharePoint Online. but, i tried this LepideMigrator for Documents (http://www.lepide.com/lepidemigratordocuments/)
that allows to migrate crucial data from file server and exchange public folders into SharePoint Online and transfer the attributes of all file, email, tasks, folder and other related items.
its 2015 and sharepoint still sucks
