Having worked with many organisations of various sizes I often am asked the questions:
– “how long will it take to be in the cloud?”
– “do we have to put everything in the cloud?”
The answers are:
– as long as a piece of string
Why is this? Because moving to the cloud is a journey – not a simple migration.
Certainly moving functions like email can happen quickly, but moving from a traditional file system to something like SharePoint Online is not a change users can adapt to overnight.
In my latest piece on BoxFreeIT I talk about how moving to the cloud is a journey and doesn’t necessarily end with just Office 365.
