Office 365 Migration Services-An Info

To ensure the success of your Office 365 migration project, you need to make sure you achieve the following objectives:

No data is lost during the transition process;

No system downtime – your business still needs to operate; and

It’s done quickly and cost-effectively.

In other words, an Office 365 migration that is stress-free! These objectives can be achieved by following these 7 steps:

  1. Review your current email system

If you’re like most people, the primary reason for migrating to Office 365 is because you want to move your email to the cloud. Accordingly, it’s important to start by collating the technical details on your current email server and run an audit report that identifies all the active users and groups as well as the size of their email boxes.Do you want to learn more?

  1. Review your current Microsoft licensing status

Office 365 has number of technical prerequisites that you need to be aware of before you migrate. The main one that catches people out is that Windows XP and Office 2003 are not supported. As well as making sure your operating system and browser will work with Office 365, it’s also important to take stock of the versions and licenses of the Microsoft Office software you already have. Like most organisations, you are probably using a mixture of Microsoft Office versions, which is just fine – but it’s important to understand what you have currently so that you can make the right decision on which mix of Office 365 plans are best suited for your organization.

  1. Review your current data storage locations and size

Office 365 offers two main locations for the storing of your data – Microsoft OneDrive and SharePoint. In order to make an informed decision on how best to store your data once you migrate to Office 365, it’s essential to review and record the locations and size of your data.

  1. Decide on the best mix of Office 365 plans

You’re now at the point where you have information on your email system, you’ve got a detailed report on your current Microsoft licensing and you know how much data you have to migrate. Congratulations – you’re now at the point where you can review the different Office 365 business and enterprise plans and decide which ones are best for your organization. Note that Microsoft now allow Office 365 plans to be mixed and matched which is great news for all businesses large and small. It means you can maximise your existing investment in recent versions of Microsoft Office as well as cater for the different requirements your staff may have, depending on their roles.

  1. Technical preparation for your Office 365 migration

It’s now time to get all your ducks in a row and that means collating all the technical details you will require to conduct a smooth migration. For example, the last thing you want to do is start your Office 365 migration and then find out you don’t have the right username and password to update your domain name record. An important part of this step is to update all computer software to the minimum specification and also consider whether you want to change the design of your email groups and the way you structure your data.

  1. Perform your Office 365 migration

The big day has arrived and it’s time to start your Office 365 migration. This is the critical step, but with the lead-up work all done, you should feel confident that the process will go smoothly. Typically the email system and data is migrated over a weekend to minimize the impact on internet performance and to reduce the impact on normal business operations.

  1. Perform a post-migration cleanup

With the actual migration complete, there are still a number of clean-up tasks to perform before the project can be deemed a success. The number and types of tasks will differ for each migration but a common example is the decommissioning of the existing Exchange software from your server. This not only reclaims disk space, but it will also increase the performance of your server and ensure that your server runs reliably going forward.

Is a DIY Office 365 Migration a Good Idea?

As you can see these seven steps collectively require considerable knowledge of your existing systems as well as a good understanding of the Office 365 platform. There are a number of third-party software tools that can be used to assist in this process – the tricky part is to know which ones are of value. In addition you need to carefully consider whether it is worth using internal staff to learn and perform a one-off multi-step project.

It may well be that the best way to assure your organization of a successful Office 365 migration is to use the services of a Microsoft Partner that has Office 365 certifications and real-world experience in performing Office 365 migrations.

Stellen Sie Fragen, antworten Sie auf Kommentare, posten Sie Dinge, die eine Reaktion auslösen. Der Name des Spiels ist hier die Interaktion mit Ihren Anhängern. Die Menschen haben bereits eine gewisse Markenbindung zu Ihnen, aber hier trennen Sie sich wirklich von den anderen und bilden einen Kunden auf Lebenszeit.

NICHT DAS: Bash schlechte Kommentare
NEIN, ich wiederhole NEIN, starte einen Kampf oder Streit mit jemandem über dein Geschäft in den sozialen Medien. Ja, in einem offenen Forum wird es Leute geben, die negative Dinge zu sagen haben. Sie mögen oder glauben vielleicht nicht, was sie sagen, oder können es sogar als strafbar ansehen, dass Sie Ihr Herz und Ihre Seele in Ihr Geschäft stecken, aber das Letzte, was Sie wollen, ist ein PR-Albtraum, der online außer Kontrolle gerät. Denken Sie daran, wenn Sie etwas online posten, bleibt es für immer dort! Schlechte Kommentare sind nicht unbedingt eine schlechte Sache. Nie zuvor seit dem Aufkommen von Twitter und Facebook war es so einfach, Probleme direkt vom Kunden zu hören und die Situation sofort zu beheben.

Ich bin mir nicht sicher, wo ich das gehört habe, aber es ist ziemlich wahr.

NICHT DAS: Badmouth Konkurrenten
Das mag sich offensichtlich anhören, aber obwohl Sie sich selbst zu einem Branchenexperten machen möchten, ist dies kein Forum, um den Followern mitzuteilen, warum sie Sie auswählen sollten oder was Sie im Vergleich zu Ihren Konkurrenten so verblüffend macht.

POST THIS: Promotions und Werbegeschenke
Wenn Sie besondere Ereignisse oder Werbegeschenke haben, können Sie auf jeden Fall die sozialen Medien nutzen, um dies zu fördern. Leute LIEBEN kostenloses Zeug, also benutze Wettbewerbe, um mehr Anhänger und Fans zu bekommen und benutze sie oft. Machen Sie es etwas wert für Leute, die sich für E-Mail-Listen anmelden oder Ihnen folgen. Anreiz geben. Ist Ihr Wertversprechen größer als der Aufwand für den potenziellen Kunden (dh das Ausfüllen von tausend Formularen)?

NICHT DAS: Verkaufen Sie Ihre Produkte
Ok, also hast du ein Ok gemacht, also hast du ein Facebook- und ein Twitter-Konto erstellt, um mehr Geschäfte zu machen. Ich verstehe … Aber wenn Sie eine treue Anhängerschaft aufbauen möchten, ist das Letzte, was Sie tun möchten, den ganzen Tag Posten-Verkaufsgespräche. Niemand mag es, verkauft zu werden. Aber jeder liebt es zu kaufen. Seien Sie vor Leuten, die Ihre Produkte nutzen, wenn sie sie brauchen, seien Sie der Branchenexperte, seien Sie engagiert und unterhaltsam und gewinnen Sie das Geschäft.

Tree Planting Tips For Your Trees, Plants and Shrubs

There are certain things that should be observed before any tree is planted. It is well-known that foresight is much preferred to hindsight, so one does well when they take a little extra time to carefully consider any major changes. One might not consider planting a tree a major change, yet it is an investment with long-term benefits, and it most certainly will change the landscape and environment. The environmental benefits won’t be discussed in this article, but suffice it to say, in a nutshell, that trees supply oxygen, while removing carbon dioxide and contaminants from the air. Trees also benefit both the economy (wood, wood products, medicines, etc.), and wildlife (providing food and shelter).click here

Thinking forward, carefully consider the property where you intend to plant. What kind of tree are you considering planting, and what goals are you endeavoring to accomplish? Whatever tree or trees that you purchase from a nursery or nurseries, be sure to take into consideration the geographical zone and soil that you plan to plant in. For example, if you plant a tree in a region that has bitter cold winters, and it is a tree that only thrives in warmer climates, great will be your disappointment when the tree dies with the first winter it is exposed to.

Planting a tree where there is dense shade when the tree requires full sun will also lead to great disappointments. Soil type must be taken into consideration also. It is very important to find out the ideal growing requirements for a tree, and the acceptable geographical regions that the tree will adapt to or thrive in. A reliable nursery or nurseries will be supply this information to you when you read the information on their website, or contact them by telephone or email.

Make sure you know the height the tree has the potential to reach, as well as the spread of its canopy. The root system must also be known. If you intend to plant it in a location permanently, with no plans to transplant it, make sure it can grow unhindered by other trees, overhead power lines or other obstructions, or block driveways, walkways, gates, etc. The root system must also be understood. If the tree is known to have roots that grow near or above ground surface, it may interfere in maintenance such as grass mowing, or it may choke out the roots of neighboring trees or take nutrients from them. The location of underground cables, telephone and power lines must be known, in order to avoid damage. Sewer lines, septic tanks and their draining lines, wells etc. must all be protected from any root system that would ruin them.

Remember that nurseries sell to great numbers. Please don’t assume that a nursery should have known by the shipping location whether the tree you purchased would thrive there or not, since countless times people buy a tree and send it on as a gift. Communicate clearly beforehand with the staff at a nursery to avoid disappointment, so that you can enjoy your purchase for years to come
