As organizations consider Office 365 as an option for hosting their SharePoint environments, you may find yourself asking how an enterprise can actually move a large number of SharePoint site collections to the cloud. In this session we will tell the story of a large scale SharePoint migration to Office 365 which started with several highly customized sites and multiple versions of SharePoint. We will also look at the project structure and plan, staffing, benefits and pitfalls, lessons learned, and how you can plan for a successful move to Office 365.

You will learn:

  • How to plan for a large scale migration to Office 365
  • The benefits and pitfalls of a move to the cloud
  • The differences between SharePoint 2007, 2010 and 2013 that must be considered in any migration
