This week I am reviving a post that I did for the gang at  Knowing what to be thinking about when planning for your Office 365 migration is invaluable.  The article covers what to be thinking about before Migrating to Office 365.  These strategies will ensure a successful deployment.

Migrating to Office 365

Migrating to Office 365

We know that Office 365 is growing quickly—Microsoft has indicated that they now have over 70,000 customers. But of course, as popular as it’s getting, most of us haven’t made the jump yet and are still watching and evaluating. Really, the main thing we know is that moving to Office 365 means relying on the cloud and getting newer versions of the desktop apps. And here on, Gabe and Brian have written about how hosted Exchange can affect desktop virtualization. (Update: They’ve also written about some potential solutions, too.) But that’s just scratching the surface—what else do we really need to know? That’s what I’ll look at today.  Read the rest of the post here.

Here is another post that I recently wrote that covers what you need to be thinking about within the type of Office 365 Migration Strategy you choose.

Office 365 Migration types

Office 365 Migration types?  Yes, that is what the title says.  There is so much emphasis on the hybrid migration option to Office 365 that we sometimes forget we have more options.  Now that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider hybrid migration.  In fact, I am a huge fan of the hybrid option, but the reality is that not all organizations have needs that align with the hybrid approach.  Let’s take a closer look at the other approaches that can be used instead.

Stay tuned for more great information about Office 365 deployments coming soon.
