Considerations for migrating to Office 365

Microsoft Office 365 migrations are impacted by initial data sources, type and density of data, and on-premises network performance. When deciding to migrate an entire organization to Office 365, a global administrator should keep the following important decisions and considerations in mind.

First, there are several different migration methods: IMAP, cutover migration, staged migration and third-party migration. The migration path will depend on your existing source system and migration requirements:

  • Number of accounts and mailboxes.
  • Size of mailboxes.
  • Exchange server version.
  • Required migration speed.
  • Office 365 throttling.

Each migration method is best suited for a particular business scenario. For instance, the cutover method, or express method, supports the migration of multiple email addresses, but Microsoft recommends using these options only for 150 or fewer mailboxes due to performance issues related to the time and complexity to set up more users. When migrating more than 150 users, the staged migration approach is recommended because a limited number of users can be better managed at a time.
