Step #1 Audit Messaging Environment
Computer Systems Support & Design will audit your current messaging environment. For example, if you currently utilize an on-premises Microsoft Exchange Server our experts will identify items that do not conform to Microsoft best practices and provide a snapshot of the overall health of the Exchange server and topology. We will also gather information such as the number of mailboxes, current mailbox sizes and email client software.
Step #2 Gather Messaging Business Requirements
Computer Systems Support & Design maps your business rules, technical requirements, and anticipated needs, across the following facets: Microsoft Office Outlook Interoperability; General Features (e.g., Rights Delegation or Public Folders); IT Administration and Support; End-User Training, Support and Impact; Mobility; Offline Access; Security; and Compliance Requirements.
Step #3 Create Migration Plan
Leveraging the information gathered Computer Systems Support & Design creates and delivers a migration plan that applies best practices for migrating to a hosted e-mail platform. This plan includes at a minimum: Internal and external resource requirements; hardware, software and network prerequisites; potential migration issues and steps to mitigate them beforehand; estimated migration time based on size, item count, and bandwidth; framework for selection of pilot groups and phased migration; communications and training strategy for IT and general staff; migration schedule; and Standard Operating Procedure for the migration.
Step #4 Migrate To Office 365
Computer Systems Support & Design starts the migration process with a custom pilot program. This pilot sets up a proof-of-concept coexistence scenario with a small number of users prior to actual deployment to reduce risk and improve the design of the migration plan. After successful completion of the pilot program, Computer Systems Support & Design performs a phased migration of existing mailboxes to Microsoft Exchange Online e-mail. Alternatively, we can configure your organization to operate in co-existence mode, which allows you to maintain your current on-premises e-mail environment and synchronize it with Office 365 e-mail, allowing you to share mailboxes between your on-premises and on-line environments.
Step #4 Training And Support
Computer Systems Support & Design can offer instructor-led in-person training. Our goal is to ensure that your staff understands how to optimally use Office 365. We can provide training to internal IT staff on supporting Office 365, general staff who will be using the tools available through Office 365, or both.
