Why you should use FastTrack to move to Office 365

A couple of years back, Microsoft was pretty much giving Office 365 licenses for free to organizations in the hopes they would join the cloud services future. But it didn’t work. Too often, companies were doing nothing with the licenses.

One key reason was the prohibitive costs of migrating. Granted, with time and effort an organization can use the built-in tools, make the connection to Office 365, and migrate themselves. But in many cases, IT resources were already stretched pretty thin, which meant finding a professional service firm or consultant to do the job for them — and those cost more than most companies could justify.

Microsoft needed to do something to control the costs without getting into the professional services game directly. And thus was born the FastTrack program, which aids the migration to any part of the Microsoft Cloud: Office 365, Enterprise Mobility Suite, CRM Online, or Azure. 

FastTrack provides free tools and resources, best practices, and setup guides. It also has experts who can assist with the migration process, both through guidance and direct remote assistance. If you need a partner to assist with a more complex migration, Microsoft will connect you with a partner while also ensuring that the price gouging of the past is avoided.
