Microsoft migration partner

04/02/15
 Migrating to Office 365 has never been easier with Evolve. As a global leader in migration solutions, we know what it takes to move data rapidly, reliably and cost effectively. But why move? Whilst we can take the pain away from the legacy move, what’s all the fuss about and is it really worth it? Why not just stay where you are?

Moving to Office 365 is clearly a question many currently companies face. What is it, why move, how much, what are the benefits? This is the first of a series, highlighting the benefits of various platforms and how we can help you migrate. Each week we will give benefits of the different platforms, starting with Microsoft Office 365.

The main benefit Office 365 offers is that you can keep using all the features we have known for some time (Email, calendars, contacts) but the burden of hosting the exchange servers moves from in-house IT departments to Microsoft. The hosting of exchange servers is now done in their “ultra-reliable” datacentres, with the significant benefit being that everything that used to cause your IT department problems now becomes Microsoft’s problem. Server crashes, network failures, backup problems all become Microsoft’s responsibility leaving you more time to focus on higher value activities.

A second advantage of moving to Office 365 is about looking forwards and not just on the “day-to-day” management. With plans offering a seemingly unlimited amount of space, the freedom to grow without borders or controls is one that frees IT departments and businesses to be more agile with less risk to core services. When one combines easy access mechanisms with a manageable and (importantly) predictable cost model, it’s a powerful combination that appeals to head and heart.

The third a final advantage is around accessibility. With access to your all the Microsoft tools (outlook, word, excel, etc) anywhere as long as you have an internet connection, files are always up-to-date version and version control and rapid knowledge sharing become the norm and not the exception.
