Our customer, Toshiba America Business Solutions, began upgrading to Office 365 by migrating its mail servers to Microsoft Exchange Online. The company engaged the Microsoft FastTrack team to migrate quickly and cost-effectively which enabled its people to work wherever they work best. Rob Williams, their Director of IT, said, “The FastTrack team helped us accelerate our migration to Office 365, getting us where we wanted to be faster, more efficiently, and without additional costs.”


Read on to learn how the Microsoft FastTrack team can help you achieve the best possible migration while keeping costs low.

You can use the project cards to manage common migration project configurations, like manage recipients, add credentials, manage events, and more! Customers and partners view, organize, and schedule migrations from the Events page where there is a card for each active migration. The Hub also enables you to manage your user map, which tells the migration tool who is who in your organization. Your FastTrack team will reference the user map when a migration runs, to correctly set the permissions in SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business.
