Office 365 Migration: How it Works

At Southern IT, we work closely with you to develop a cloud migration plan that meets your specific needs. 

Here's a look at our typical process, which we'll customise based on your environment:

1) Collaborative Discovery: 

We'll start a collaborative discovery session to understand your current IT infrastructure. This includes:

Data Mapping: Where is your data stored? How is it accessed? We'll identify the data that needs migration and its current use patterns.

Needs Assessment: We'll discuss your goals for the migration and identify any desired changes to your data structure or access controls within Office 365. 

Feasibility Analysis: We'll assess your existing environment to recommend the optimal migration tools and techniques for a smooth transition. 

2) Customised Migration Plan: 

Based on our collaboration session, we'll create a personalised migration plan tailored to your specific needs. This plan will outline: 

Migration Phases: A clear breakdown of the migration process, including pre-migration preparation, data transfer and post-migration cutover. 

Tool Selection: We'll recommend the most efficient tools for your migration, using Microsoft's built-in solutions or advanced commercial options if needed. 

Communication Strategy: We'll develop a communication plan to keep everyone informed throughout the entire migration process. 

3) Seamless Migration & Cutover:

With your plan in place, we'll execute the migration seamlessly, ensuring minimal disruption to your daily operations. We'll handle: 

Secure Data Transfer: We use robust security measures to ensure the safe and accurate migration of your data to Office 365. 

User Migration & Access: We'll migrate user accounts and ensure proper access controls within the new environment.

Cutover & User Adoption: We'll coordinate a smooth cutover to Office 365 and provide user training to ensure smooth user adoption of the new platform. 

4) Ongoing Support & Optimisation:

We offer ongoing support to help you optimise your Office 365 environment: 

Post-Migration Review: We'll analyse the migration performance and address any user concerns or questions. 

Optimisation & Security: We'll work with you to optimise your cloud environment for ongoing security and performance.

Long-Term Support: We're readily available for any future questions or support you may need.
