Considerations for your migration

Take a look at the key milestones that should be considered for each part of the plan

  • Cost: Understanding and evaluating the costs and the different licensing options, including potential platform benefits, is a must.
  • Compatibility: We need to ensure that your existing systems and applications are compatible with Microsoft 365, this includes but is not limited to, current email servers, productivity software and custom applications that you rely on with a future dependence on services replaced by Microsoft 365 products and services.
  • Data Migration: Migrating your data to Microsoft 365 will likely involve moving large amounts of data, including emails, documents, and other files.
  • User training: Depending on the level of familiarity your staff have with Microsoft 365 products; it may be useful to provide training to ensure a smooth transition.
  • Security: Whilst Microsoft 365 is secure, there are still a lot of considerations that need to be reviewed against your company’s specific security needs. CSCM can help with this and help set up Multi-Factor Authentication.
  • Integrations: Microsoft 365 offers several integration options, with Microsoft and non-Microsoft products. Early discovery of these integrations and how they can fit into your company’s existing workflows can have immediate impact on productivity.
  • Ongoing maintenance, management, and support: This includes items such as licensing usage, types of licensing in use, reviews of data usage amongst other tasks to make sure that it’s functioning as optimally as possible.
