Office 365 tenant-to-tenant migration: Common pitfalls

You’ve migrated to the cloud! Whether you’ve built a cloud-only IT environment or a hybrid infrastructure, you’re probably breathing a huge sigh of relief at completing your project. It’s a big accomplishment. Congratulations!

But if you’re reading this, you’ve realized that migra­tion is not a one-time thing. Your organization will continue to evolve and expand, which means that merger and acquisition (M&A) activity is probably coming somewhere down the road, or perhaps it’s already staring you in the face.

You’re not alone. According to Deloitte’s 2018 M&A trends report, executives at both corporate and private equity firms expect an acceleration of M&A activity in 2018, in both the number and size of the deals. And since so many organiza­tions have moved to a cloud or hybrid environment just as you have, your next merger or acquisition is very likely to require integrating two cloud IT environments — in other words, a tenant-to-tenant migration and consolidation.

In this informative white paper, we’ll explore what’s involved in a tenant-to-tenant migration and then a few common pitfalls you might encounter during your project, like:

  • Underestimating your migration’s scope
  • Not creating a backup at the start
  • Not properly evaluating what you need to migrate
  • Not preparing for coexistence throughout the project
  • And much more
