There are a few barriers that can greatly affect the success of your Microsoft 365 migration. Some of the biggest ones include the following:
You rushed into it without a strategy.
Planning does not only mean choosing a new platform and then deciding when to make the transition. It also means taking every possible factor into account – your current systems, your specific requirements, your goals, and anything else that will either simplify or complicate the migration. You will also need to think carefully about when to plan the migration. Having a rough timeline is a good start but having a set time and date that ensures minimal downtime is even better.
You have not integrated existing systems.
The reason that it is so important to consider your current systems before getting started with the migration is simple. Like most businesses, you are likely using MS 365 along with your existing systems. Migration gets complicated when you do not do this carefully and properly. Like any set of tools, you need to make sure that you are able to start using the new system without interruption or problems from the existing system. This is why it helps to get help making the transition, to help you seamlessly integrate all of your systems for ultimate efficiency.
You have not considered your future goals.
If you have already made the migration and you are wondering why you are not seeing much in the way of results as your business grows, it may be because you have not factored in your future goals. Scalability is hugely important when moving to any new system. Although the entire Microsoft cloud suite is designed for growth, you still need to have a clear understanding of what you want now and in a few years time.
