A year of success in Office 365 Management and Migration

Dec 23, 2019 by Thomas Madsen

2019 has been a busy year for Quadrotech. In typical fashion, we like to give a rundown on what went down this year and some of our highlights. The company has jumped leaps and bounds since 2018, achieving a lot of successes in different areas of Office 365 Management and Migration.

Without further ado, let’s get started:

Our achievements in Office 365 Management & Migration

Nova burns bright at Ignite

One of our top highlights was introducing our all-new Office 365 SaaS Management platform to our customers and partners at Ignite.

Everyone’s got the Microsoft memo: If you consider Office 365 to comprise of standalone workloads – Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive, Teams, etc. – you’re wrong. They’re increasingly integrated and complementary, which speaks volumes to the growing maturity of cloud infrastructure.

This cohesive vision has highlighted the need for fully connected management systems, which has seen scores of people queuing at the Quadrotech booth to see Nova in action.

This newly-released Office 365 management software caused quite a stir with its breadth of functionality, which provides a single platform for:

  • Reporting and analytics: Detailed, automated reports to monitor workload adoption, license optimization, mail flow, security and permission settings, storage management, and more.
  • Service monitoring: Intelligent workload availability monitoring, reducing helpdesk burden ensuring downtime issues are quickly resolved.
  • Delegation and policy control: Advanced RBAC and delegated rights, allowing secure access to end-users for specified tasks, ensuring greater productivity for IT teams.
  • Multi-tenant management: Manage multiple Office 365 tenants from one portal, particularly beneficial for service providers responsible for several clients.
  • Adoption: Build sophisticated campaigns to drive adoption of key workloads.

It’s the last point on this list that has really resonated with attendees, as Microsoft has been pushing the need to focus on driving user adoption. In previous years, there’s been an emphasis on moving to the cloud, but now that most enterprise organizations are there, you need to ensure your users are making the most of it.

Microsoft MVP Paul Robichaux hosted a webinar on this subject on November 21, so if you need some pointers on maximizing your investment, check out: 3 Practical Strategies to Boost Adoption of Microsoft 365 for a free downloadable copy.

Cloud Commander continues to break record migration speeds

It just kept getting faster and faster with Cloud Commander – our Office 365 to Office 365 migration tool – this year, achieving migration speeds of over 70GB per hour, and some migration projects hitting phenomenal sustained speeds of over 200GB an hour.

We also released support for Teams and SharePoint migrations as well as a Mac reconfiguration agent, which expanded our capabilities for our enterprise customers.

The development worked tirelessly to make enhancements to the automation engine to create seamlessly automated workflows reducing the efforts needed by users and customers.

Using our advanced reporting intellect from Nova, we can scope projects, find new challenges, increase our user’s satisfaction and provide higher quality outcomes.

Our expertise in this area, also led the introduction of our MAD Change Series, which aims to educate and guide organizations through their mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. A must-watch if you’re embarking in this kind of change in your organization. We also had a lot of fun creating this series – don’t forget to check out the bloopers!

The outstanding feedback from our customers

Hearing our customers feedback this year has been gratifying and motivating for everyone across the company. G2, a customer review site for software and services, enabled us to gather the opinions of the people on-the-ground using our products daily. We had contributions from System Engineers, Admins, Developers and Executives who all gave different perspectives on how our migration solutions have helped with their projects and regular tasks.

Here are some of the top reviews we received:

Fantastic Product, Fantastic People, Fantastic Company – Quadrotech took all the complexity of a huge project like a PST Migration and made it a completely guided process, with white-glove service. All of our questions were answered thoroughly throughout the process, from pre-sales, to post-sale and the entire way through the project.
The engineers who were assigned to our project were extremely knowledgeable, patient, and really cared about the success of our project which had several red flags we felt were important to address. They addressed each concern individually and were there each and every time we needed to address a concern.”

Made a potentially very complex migration simple
What do you like best?
Quadrotech’s products are designed by people who clearly understand the technology and the challenges faced when migrating from on-premises Exchange and Enterprise Vault to Office 365.

What do you dislike?
Can’t think of anything I dislike about Quadrotech.

Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are looking for a seamless migration of Enterprise Vault archive to Office 365 then Quadrotech Archive Shuttle will meet your needs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We used Quadrotech to migrate 18TB of Symantec Enterprise Vault content along with user mailboxes from Exchange to Office 365, as well as ingesting a couple TB of PST files. Their software turned what would have been a very complex and messy migration into a pretty seamless one. I found their professional services team are extremely knowledgeable and helpful.”

And that’s a wrap!

What a year it’s been. We’re looking forward to what’s on the horizon in 2020. All of our successes this year are purely down to the hard work done by our talented people, we truly wouldn’t be able to achieve all we have done without them.
