Microsoft Exchange / 365 Setup/Migrations

Migrating email from Exchange (on-premises) to Office 365 (in the cloud) would seem to be a pretty simple and straightforward process, and when you know what you are doing, it is a methodical process. However in the past 2-3 years that we’ve been doing Office 365 migrations, it’s amazing the number of times we get called in to “fix something” that some other migration specialist did that has us shaking our heads wondering what they were thinking.

First of all, when done right, an Office 365 Migration is like any other migration, there’s planning that needs to be done, prerequisites that have to be configured, quirks that have to be worked out, and then ultimately just select mailboxes and migrate users to Office 365.

Office 365 Migrations are not simple cookie cutter processes that someone can just “wing-it” over a weekend, but to do it right, have someone with deep rooted expertise in Exchange, Office 365, archives, security, DNS, storage, firewalls, proxies, networking, Autodiscover, Active Directory, AD FS, DirSync, PowerShell, client app packaging, pushing out policies to endpoint clients, mobile device management expertise, ActiveSync policies expertise, etc.
