Proact enables seamless cloud migrationDownload the case study
Reaping the benefits of Office 365
Extensive preparation was critical to ensure Samhall’s migration from managed email servers to Office 365 was completed efficiently and effectively. The company, which is Sweden's largest state owned organisation with 600 sites across the country, didn’t want this work to hinder any of its 3,000 users. Following this successful transition, Samhall has now set its sights on the second phase of the project, leveraging the potential of Office 365, creating more value from the cloud platform.
Step-by-step transition and customised features
Applications such as Skype for Business will be introduced
Detects spam and malware from both in/outbound traffic
Workloads placed in the cloud where possible
Proact will monitor and review resources
Single sign-on features for access to all applications
For a large organisation such as Samhall, migrating to Office 365 involves much more than simply moving user accounts and mailboxes from the existing Exchange servers. That's why the company sought an expert partner to assist with the transition, who could make sure that the move happened without disruption. Samhall also wanted advice on best practices, and required expertise to help plan the integration of other services such as Skype for Business.
By conducting workshops, tests and pilots, Proact was able to devise an effective migration plan. The strategy, which our experts developed, perfectly aligned with Samhall's IT strategy - to place workloads in the cloud wherever possible. Samhall also selected our Service Management offering to make sure configurations and updates were always implemented where necessary, while also freeing IT resource from the timely task of searching for information.
Relying on Proact for Office 365 Service Management is convenient and saves us a lot of time as we don’t have to search for information. It also ensures that we’re not missing any important updates to the service.
