There are many benefits of doing an Office 365 migration in Singapore: it enables real-time access for users wherever they may be, promotes collaboration, streamlines business operations, lessens downtime, and more.

However, most companies don’t realise that this process is not as easy as it seems. There are various challenges and unique risks related to Office 365 migration in Singapore. An experienced IT outsourcing company like FunctionEight can help you prevent or overcome such challenges.

Why Choose Office 365 Migration in Singapore

First things first: Microsoft Office 365 (renamed to Microsoft 365 on April 21, 2020) is a subscription-based service that combines Microsoft Office desktop applications (i.e., Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Access, and Publisher) with a set of web-enabled collaborative applications/services: Skype for Business (previously called Lync), OneDrive for Business (for additional cloud storage), Microsoft Teams, and Exchange email services.

Office 365 likewise comes with Office on Demand, which offers live versions of Microsoft Office apps that can be streamed directly to all devices that are connected to the web: phone, PC, Mac, or tablet. Hence, users can conveniently access their documents, email, and more. Office 365 lets users literally take their office with them everywhere.

Here are the top benefits of Office 365:

  • Makes emails, calendar tools, and many other important company data and apps accessible to all users, thus minimising miscommunication and delay in workflow, while enhancing collaboration
  • Lets employees view and edit the most updated files, attend meetings, give presentations, and many more using their mobile devices
  • Allows companies to develop a powerful and effective corporate website that’s easy to maintain and with minimal to no hassle
  • Last but not the least: Provides peace of mind when it comes to data security

Office 365 migration in Singapore improves work efficiency, streamlines operations, and — ultimately — helps boost your bottom line.

However, there are multiple challenges and risks involved in doing Office 365 migration in Singapore. First, it’s crucial to ensure that the Active Directory is well-structured and up-to-date. This is a tedious task for organisations, particularly those with limited resources (e.g., IT experts).

Second, there’s a high risk of incompatibility when it comes to migrating a large number of emails, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, etc.. On top of that, the incorporation of OneDrive Cloud Storage into company-issued laptops demands the right skill. Synchronising to the cloud also comes with the risk of disrupting users and lowering their productivity.

Finally, there’s the challenge of securing data, users, apps, and endpoints, which all take up a massive amount of IT resources.

With all of these in mind, it’s best to entrust Office 365 migration in Singapore to an IT services firm that has the necessary expertise as well as tremendous experience in carefully and professionally performing Office 365 migration in Singapore.
