Experts,

I am looking for feedback from those who have migrated, or who administer Office 365 for SMBs of 30-100 users.
I am looking to migrate a SMB of 50 users who have onsite exchange and domain services through SBS3003 to Office 365 E1, Cloud Identity + DirSync.  
Most of the training and documentation I have seen is for either smaller or larger organizations.  Is the setup for a SMB the same as the SSO setup of ADFS with Dirsync, just omit the ADFS setup?  Any insight, documentation, or experiences will be helpful. Thanks.

What you are looking for is Dirsync with password sync:

Other than that, the usual stuff: verify the domain, deploy the client updates, cutover migration, update DNS, etc

Here's a recent post regarding migration from SBS 2003, you can find a detailed list of steps in it:
