Last month Greg Shields, principal technologist with Concentrated Technology, wrote an article for TechTarget that described his organization’s experience migrating to Office 365. In the article, he provides many suggestions to ensure a successful migration and describes his experience with Quest Software’s OnDemand Migration for Email. Here are the seven lessons he provided in the article that you should consider prior to your Office 365 migration:
