If you know me or if you have read my bio on the GSX website, then you know that I have spent a good portion of my recent career deeply involved in the migration and interoperability of Lotus Notes (aka IBM Notes) and Domino to Microsoft Exchange Server as well as Microsoft Office 365.
When organizations migrate from Domino to their new on-premises,
cloud, or hybrid Microsoft Exchange environment, there is a period of
time when users and applications exist on both platforms.
IT administrators know this is a precarious state to be in.
If you’re considering making the big move to Microsoft Office 365, it’s important to know what the process entails and where costs may be hiding before you take the leap. Unfortunately, far too many customers migrate to Office 365 before they are ready. Knowing what surprises could be in store is crucial to helping you make successful decisions when preparing for your move to the cloud.
The wave of migration to Microsoft Office 365 has progressed aggressively, supported by the active partner ecosystem. There have been numerous advantages to moving to Office 365. Organizations with complex messaging and collaboration infrastructures have also made the move to cloud, and have been successful in implementation due to strong technical expertise from Microsoft and Service providers.
