Moving to Office 365 - Planning and Migration Guide
Why Office 365 and why this book? The answer is simple: for me it has always been about giving back to the community. Office 365 users are a community. It is important for those who are passionate about Office 365 to help the community grow. This Office 365 book is a combination of my experiences and questions that I am constantly being asked about moving customers to Office 365. Customers who move to Office 365 improve their productivity and reduce operation costs. Why use Office 365? It just makes business sense. It is about what people want to do, and how they work. Office 365 is a cloud-based service; using it is what you know—the Microsoft Office suite. It simply works, plus you do not have to give up your intellectual property to use the service. This is important. Not all cloud solutions are this forthright. Our customers who use Office 365 have significantly reduced their IT services costs and their concerns in the areas of data security, compliance, and discovery. This is a living book. We approached Apress, our publisher, with the idea that this book should morph over time. We suggested that a living book could be created about Microsoft cloud services, based on our experience both now and in the future. Apress agreed. KAMIND IT, a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider and Cloud Champion and a multiyear Microsoft Partner award winner, presents a unique value proposition for our Office 365 customers. Our approach has been to partner with our clients to journey to the cloud together. That experience is reflected in this book and will continue to be. Join us in this journey to the cloud with Office 365.
