Many, perhaps most organizations, that move from on-premises versions of Office to the cloud and Office 365 only focus on the migration of users, data, applications and services. Once the move is underway, problems arise – administration is tougher than they hoped, Office 365 specific attacks threaten data, and the granting of licenses is a willy-nilly money-wasting affair.
Some shops spot these issues midway through an Office 365 rollout. Others cry for help after the migration is complete, and problems hobble an otherwise efficient IT staff. And too many figure out cumbersome ways to deal with an imperfect situation, chalking it up to Office 365 business as usual.
Ignoring these operational issues means living with an insecure, unwieldy and breach-prone SaaS environment. It doesn’t have to be this way. No matter where you are on the migratory journey, pause a bit and contemplate these six Office 365 migration mistakes. Taking care of these critical issues before, during or after migration (preferably before) creates a satisfying and optimal Office 365 experience.
