Many organisations are wanting to migrate from an on-prem environment to Office 365, to enjoy the benefits of Microsoft’s public cloud offerings. With Office 365, Microsoft lets you enjoy the cloud version of their popular programmes like Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and Publisher. It enables document synchronisation on different platforms. However, there could be several roadblocks in the way of a smooth transition to Office 365.

Three most common challenges related to Office 365 migration are:

  1. Security concerns
  2. Customisation challenge
  3. Management challenge


Unfortunately, there are various shortcomings in the management and security related features that Office 365 supports. To make up for Office 365’s shortcomings, organisations need a third-party tool that improves security and compliance, but also simplifies Exchange Online and Azure AD management. This will make it easier to perform Office 365 migrations.

An ideal solution would be a tool that takes care of all the above challenges and lets you migrate your existing inbox, contacts, and calendar – without the help of any complex PowerShell scripts.
