This book takes a concentrated look at the very latest best practices for Office 365 migration, with a focus on the needs of senior managers, IT managers, and others involved in key decisions when moving their business to the cloud.

Based on popular chapters in his first book, Office 365: Migrating and Managing Your Business in the Cloud (Apress Open, co-authored with Don Crawford), author Matt Katzer revises and expands on his original material to bring you the very latest guidance on planning methods, management best practices, personnel decisions and migration and maintenance costs, along with brand new material on some of the most important and cutting-edge considerations when moving your business to the cloud: securing company data, and driving social collaboration in the workplace.

Cloud technology provides a tremendous opportunity for an organization to reduce IT costs, and to improve productivity with increased mobile access, simpler administration, better security, and enterprise social collaboration. Those businesses that embrace the advantages of the cloud will receive huge rewards in better security, productivity and lower total cost of ownership over those businesses that choose to ignore it. The challenge for those charged with implementing Microsoft Office 365 is to maximize these advantages with minimal disruption to their organization. Moving to Office 365 provides practical help in moving your business to the cloud and covers the security, planning, migration and the follow-on management of the Office 365 cloud services, with an emphasis on securing your corporate information in the cloud.
