For years, G Suite has been ‘the common house name’ among enterprises that rely on Gmail and Google Drive for email and file storage services. G Suite’s uncomplicated and effortless features are one of the main reasons why organizations rely on it for productivity needs. However, with the constant changes happening in the Modern Workplace, businesses are now steadily adapting themselves to Office 365 to avail its unparalleled business specific features.
If you’ve got used to the ways of Google Workspace based productivity applications, adopting Office 365 can be a bit strenuous task for you. But don’t worry! In this blog we’ve suggested three easy ways to help you kick start your G Suite to Office 365 migration journey. Without much ado, let’s dive in!
As G Suite is entirely a web-based application most of the G Suite users, will find it hard to work with the desktop version of Office 365. Unlike G Suite, Office 365 is not an entirely web-based application. And thus, while trying to migrate from G Suite to Office 365, it’s always good to start with the web-based applications of Office 365, instead of using its desktop version.
However, if once you’ve become comfortable with the ways of Microsoft you can slowly make your transition from web-based to desktop applications of Office 365.
As Google offers a standard user experience for all its Gmail and Google Drive users, adopting Outlook and OneDrive can be a bit complicated for the newbies of Office 365.
If you’re planning to migrate all your employees’ account from G Suite to Office 365 don’t be in a hurry. Let them start with Teams!
Teams’ user-friendly and sleek user experience may increase your employee’s willingness to adopt Office 365. And so, it’s always advised to shift from Google Hangouts to Microsoft Teams instead of starting with something complex like Gmail to Outlook.
Starting from known to unknown features would simplify your migration process without any hiccups!
Remember, no matter what you try, simply migrating from G Suite to Office 365 can never be the end solution. The end solution lies in the user experience! Planning to perform migration through an inbuilt/native migration solution may sound like a cool idea. But beware of data loss! Especially when you’re migrating a huge number of files.
