How to Successfully Migrate to Office 365 Without Downtime, Lost Data, Licensing Mistakes

Migrating your Exchange server or your entire Office suite to the cloud (Office 365) is likely to be one of the most important and visible IT projects you’ll handle all year. Get it right and you’ll become the office “hero”, making the entire organization more productive, efficient, and lowering overall total cost of ownership for IT.

Office 365 Migration Mistakes

Get it wrong – or simply overlook one important detail– and the migration can quickly turn into a disaster with extensive downtime, disruptions to critical business functions, lost data, licensing issues, compliance violations and project timelines and costs spiraling out of control. The more data you need to consolidate and migrate, the greater the risk for failures and problems. I’m sure that you already know this and have had first-hand experience with at least one IT project gone wrong, which is why I believe this blog to be of particular interest.

At Garner IT, we’ve been a trusted resource for over 9 years as IT professionals with project-specific expertise such as an on-premise Exchange server upgrade or an Office 365 migration. Not only do we handle projects but are also an extra set of hands to assist with time consuming back-end IT functions such as back-ups, security and network monitoring, Microsoft software licensing, and a host of other IT functions to free you up to be more strategic in your company.
