Do you want to implement Office 365 in your business’s IT network? If so, then you need to develop an Office 365 migration plan before you can get started. Here is our Office 365 migration guide. It has all the steps and tips you need to enact a successful Office 365 implementation for your business.
Before you begin your Office 365 migration and implementation, you need to determine what your expectations, goals, and objectives for this process are. You should gather your business’s key stakeholders to find out what they expect from this migration and learn what their goals and objectives for it are. Once you take stock of your stakeholders’ goals, objectives, and expectations, you can begin drafting your migration plan. Office 365 migrations take time. During this part of the planning process, you’ll need to decide how to schedule your migration, manage your departments’ and teams’ transition to Office 365, and mitigate the risks involved in this migration. Once you’ve developed your migration plan, you can begin meeting all necessary Office 365 migration requirements, including selecting the type of migration you want to use to complete the process.
There are several ways to migrate your email, contact data, calendar information, and other data to Office 365, and you’ll need to decide which type best fits your business needs and goals. You could migrate your data over gradually with a staged migration. In a staged migration, you migrate your network’s mailboxes to Office 365 in batches over a period of a few weeks or months. If you need a faster migration, however, you could use a cutover migration. The cutover migration process moves all your on-premises mailboxes over to Office 365 in just a few days. Microsoft recommends that you use cutover migration with 150 mailboxes, but you can use it with as many as 2,000 mailboxes. Performance can suffer, however, when you perform a cutover migration with such large numbers. Reverus can help you explore these migration types and more to figure out which one best meets your business needs.
