Integration: The Final Step in Change Management
The final step in successful change management is the Integration stage. Here’s how to bring everything together. Watch now.
Throughout this series we’ve covered a range of topics surrounding email migration to Office 365. If you’ve missed any, or would like to consolidate your understanding of a particular part, here’s what we’ve discussed to date:
This penultimate post will guide you through a brief self-test questionnaire to assess how ready your organisation is to take on a migration project.
About this self-test questionnaire
To round up our series on migrating email ecosystems to Office 365, we’ve ‘borrowed’ the following checklist from the essential Quadrotech guide Email Migration to Office 365. The 20 questions below cover everything from compliance, policies, business case, technology and business risks. We’re confident that these will help you to assess your organisation’s position in terms of readiness to commence your migration project.
If you can answer all of these questions with a Yes, then chances are you’re ready! If there’s still a significant amount of No’s cropping up throughout the questionnaire, you may need to address or develop some areas of the process before you get started. If you think you’re ready? Good luck! We hope your migration is a fast, successful and causes minimal impact.
A successful migration might feel like the finishing line, but there’s a lot to consider once you’re in your new Office 365 environment. This is the beginning of transforming your IT, improving productivity, end user agility and mobility, not to mention taking advantage of the enhanced security and administrative capabilities.
Our final post in the series will begin to explore ‘what’s next’ once your migration has been completed. When it comes to making the project an ongoing success, you need to understand how your organisation is embracing the change, and develop a comprehensive strategy to drive active usage, service adoption, and measure the return on your Office 365 investment. Make sure you don’t miss out.
