On-Premises Domain Migration to Office365

Customer: Membership Company

Membership company used an traditional on-premises domain with file services, Exchange, Active Directory, Web Sites and Windows 8.1. They wanted to become more agile and promote BYOD and work from anywhere. As all their services could be serviced by Office 365 it made perfect sense to migrate them to a cloud only company.

I migrated their AD users into Azure AD, configured MFA, Migrated email into Exchange Online and their file shares into SharePoint Online. Enabled them for Skype for Business Online and moved their corporate website to Azure Web Sites.

I migrated their personal files to OneDrive for Business and upgraded their desktops to Windows 10 and joined them to AzureAD.
