A Boston area commercial real estate broker modernized its IT operations in a two-phase project. The first phase moved all of the company’s operations from existing onsite terminal services to Office 365. Files that had previously been stored at multiple locations were consolidated onto a single SharePoint Online site. The migration created bit of an internal culture shock, especially for many of the company’s less-than tech-savvy workers. It was an issue that reached all the way into the executive suite.

The challenges included: an unstable cloud-based email provider, multiple domains to be consolidated into a single o365 tenant, and DNS records hosted by multiple providers. In additional, there was geographic diversity with individual users spread out across the nation, each using different operating systems and email clients. The discovery process also uncovered several “mystery” mailboxes and a review of these allowed the team to eliminate them and save the agency from paying for them on an ongoing basis.
