OD4B Migration Support


Our client has implemented a cloud-first strategy that includes moving solutions and data from on-site hosted data centres to the Microsoft 365 platforms by the end of 2022.

Employee Workplace has a must-win goal of having personal data ("home drive") migrated to OneDrive for Business for all employees by the end of 2022.

Content will be transitioned from the current file server system into OneDrive for Business following an IT-driven migration strategy to provide the best experience for our users. The main responsibility will be to define and schedule migration batches, and then reviewing and fixing any pre- and postmigration issues / problems.
