we are doing a migration this weekend to Office 365. we have 50 users. the plan was to upgrade out exchange 2007 to 2013 first, (i know, a project within a project) but our 2007 isnt working properly and we werent able to move forward with a hybrid solution, so we have to upgrade than move mailboxes to O365 in order to get our hybrid solution.
My question is, from what you've experienced or heard which solution would you go for?
i have heard bad storiues about going to the cloud right away, and that hybrid solution saved the day. But others are saying move to the cloud and it will eliminate the exchange 2013 project as well as having to troublshoot the sync between both and exchange itself if anything goes wrong in the future relating to email.
please help as i am not sure which way to go.
