Our Step-By-Step Approach
Step 1: Discovery & Assessment
This phase gives the client the opportunity to make sure that the data being migrating is actually useful, still being actively used, and is able to live in the cloud. Our goal is to make sure that only cloud-ready, mission-critical content needs to be migrated over to the new system.
Step 2: Strategic Planning
During this phase of Office 365 migration plan, we will take the information gathered during discovery assessment and begin to plan the company’s future in the cloud. When introducing a new IT system to an organization, it is essential to understand the business requirements that are driving the IT requirements and ensure they are aligned.
Step 3: Pilot Migration
During this phase of Office 365 migration plan, we will,
- Migrate a small portion of content and verify the results
- Make any modifications based on pilot migration output
- Do some quick testing of the plans and mapping created during the Planning and Assessment phase
Step 4: Migrate
Now you’ve reached the migration phase, and the proverbial heavy lifting can begin.
Step 5: Validation and Remediation
During post-migration, clients will be heavily involved in validating data — from a data quality perspective, but also in the context of the applications and business processes that will consume or operate on the target data structures.
