Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise

Hi,
I am researching migrating my organizing to office 365 online. My company is about 450 users and so far I have only been able to find resellers who deal mainly with small businesses between 25 to 150 users.

The only company I have found capable of handling 450 users is AT&T.

Can anyone recommend any companies who are able to resell to larger and Enterprise class customers.

Thanks

If you're looking for an company to assist you with the migration to Office 365, I'd suggest you contact AgileIT.com  

They are definitely the type of expert you are looking for and they regularly assist organizations of your size.

I think the problem you have been encountering with Microsoft not being "helpful" is that you have the concept of buying through a "reseller" when the majority of Microsoft Cloud Partners do not actually "resell" Office 365 -- you still are buying it from Microsoft (and the partner gets a commission).

What do you need from the reseller?  Assistance with the migration or ongoing support or something else?

Guessing you are based in the US from the AT&T reference?

Yes, I am US based. I am looking into the whole process from migration to technical help.
So far Microsoft has not been that helpful when dealing with resellers.

What's your current setup / environment?

You looking at a cutover migration?  I would expect 450 seats is a bit much to do in one hit!

I did about 120 over the course of a weekend and it was a little tiring.

Clients to be updated, passwords to be reset, Outlook to be configured.

Took about a week for the mail to be synced to Office 365.

I'll see if I can find someone used to larger installs your side of the pond.  Whereabouts are you located?  Eastern / Central / Mountain / Pacific ?

I'm setup with on premise exchange and lync etc.  My plan would be a gradual migration. Selected users over a period.

I'm pacific washington state.

what kind of on-premise solution do you have?
the migration is really straight-forward really.

If you decide to leave all on-premise use DirSync to sync all users to cloud - with existing passwords, if you decide to maintain on-premise AD you can decide to add ADFS as well.

After all users are synced up with dirsync, start mail migration mailbox by mailbox until all are migrated to cloud. Then change MX -records
