Office 365 migration guides and information
Posted on 2013-12-18
Our CEO is super excited about office 365, but as sometimes happens, he knows nothing about it and whether it would be a good idea for our small/medium sized business. He wants us to switch over asap.
I tried getting info from microsoft like a migration guide, but they just keep pointing me to 'partners'. That's great, and I'm sure should we decide to migrate our email etc, we would need one of the services that copies the mailboxes, but I would like to figure out the risks and processes of migrating before actually paying someone.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a comprehensive guide to figuring out a project plan? I've googled but haven't come up w/ much in depth info.
Our scenario, in case anyone has opinions on what it might take:
Currently we have hosted email through rackspace, about 38 'rackspace' (aka imap) email boxes, 60ish exchange boxes, and over 300 (!) 'aliases'.
If you experts could point me to resources to figure out a project plan I would certainly appreciate it. Suggestions on good partners who can assist with email and sharepoint migrations would be great too, but we don't want to spend a ton of money on this, of course.
