Microsoft 365

Learn how companies can work purely in the cloud (“cloud-only”) or connect existing on-premises systems to the cloud to extend the value of their legacy infrastructure (“hybrid”). You’ll see how these two different service models require different approaches to migration, and then you’ll review a few scenarios that demonstrate when to choose one type of migration over the other. Finally, we’ll review some considerations for how an organization approaches migrating systems with older versions of Office, Windows, and Office Server to Microsoft 365.

In this module, you will learn:

  • The considerations to keep in mind when selecting a cloud service.
  • Terminology associated with adopting a cloud service.
  • The difference between cloud-only and hybrid migration models and how to choose between them.
  • When an organization might want to move systems with older operating systems and Microsoft Office directly to Microsoft 365 instead of upgrading legacy software.
