Small businesses anywhere from between 15 to 100 people have dealt with bringing their own email in-house. They may have taken the plunge a few years ago, and employed an individual, or company to help them. The system may run perfectly well and they don’t think too much about it until things start going wrong. At this point the question often is not how long it will take to fix it, rather, can we fix it? With Office 365 this is never an issue companies are going to have to worry about. In fact, Microsoft discloses uptime numbers on a quarterly basis on the Office 365 Trust Center.
Imagine millions of mailboxes across the globe; with Fortune 500 companies on the service, any problems are going to be fixed in a hurry. There may be the occasional glitch, but you don’t have to wonder whom to call to get it fixed, it is simply going to happen. Microsoft guarantees:
- Built in security
- Continuous compliance
- Transparent operations
What are the concerns when it comes to migration requirements?
Each customer has to figure out how they are going to get to Office 365. It is not always easy. Some know exactly what they need to do, but others really don’t know, and that is where Big Green IT comes in, helping companies get from wherever they happen to be right now, to being prepared to migrate to Office 365. It is all about doing Office 365 migration the correct way. It is important to know what to expect and to be prepared.
There are certain requirements of the new environment. For example, certain versions of software are critical. Outlook 2010 or newer is really necessary; Outlook 2007 is not well supported. A company does not need the latest version of software, but they have to be close. The good news is that there are a lot of ways to buy Office 365 where you get the modern infrastructure as part of the package.
When all is said and done, is your company ready to move to Office 365? Watch our Office 365 Migration webinar or contact The Big Green IT team with any questions or concerns.
