Microsoft Office 365 Migration & Setup
The latest incarnation of Microsoft’s business software series, Office 365, sees the productivity suite move into the cloud. Office 365 allows users to be much more productive by making productivity applications far more accessible across a range of devices and geographical locations. However, Office 365 represents a significant departure from Microsoft’s previous business software solutions. It is absolutely vital that adopters of Office 365 have well planned migration and support solutions in place.

Getting the most out of Microsoft Office 365: Support And Migration

Microsoft Office 365 Setup

Whilst Microsoft Office 365 is much simpler than its predecessors, it remains a powerful solution that must be carefully set up initially. By entrusting Server Consultancy to manage your Office 365 setup you can be confident of getting the most out of your investment in Office 365. Important aspects of the Microsoft Office 365 setup process include adding users to the system and assigning the relevant permissions; adding mobile devices and configuring security policies; installing local software packages and configuring cloud based software (including OneDrive – file storage – and SharePoint – collaboration software).

Microsoft Office 365 Migration

Migrating from your existing locally based office software to the cloud and Microsoft Office 365 is a significant undertaking and must be carefully planned. Server Consultancy has experience planning and managing the migration to Office 365 from Exchange (2003, 2007, 2010 onwards) servers and other small business servers. We can ensure your migration is painless and minimise business disruption. Important steps in the migration process include:

  • Ensuring user accounts are ready for the switch. This includes ensuring new password requirements are honoured and user privileges are updated.
  • Ensuring Office 365 software requirements are met (Internet Explorer 6 and Microsoft Office 2003 are not supported).
  • Considering the implications of Office 365 on the business’s domain names.
  • Ensuring your email database and settings are successfully transferred to the cloud.
  • Configuring all devices to use Office 365 services.
