What it was REALLY like migrating to SharePoint Online
Moving to the cloud is tempting and exciting for a myriad of reasons, but what does it actually entail at the SharePoint admin level? This session will cover the research, business case for your CIO, project planning, and lessons learned of an actual on-premises SharePoint-to-SharePoint Online migration process from the beginning—selling it to management—to planning, launch, and, finally on to change management and sustaining the system.
This migration took place on a small Caribbean island, so the value of inherent disaster recovery following migration was a key factor, but it’s just as applicable to a mainland situation. If you’re considering or planning on going hybrid or migrating fully into the SharePoint cloud, this session will provide you proven practices, prevent headaches, and give you ideas that you can take back and implement in your SharePoint roadmap. Plus, photos of palm trees and azure waters.
