Silversands and Cloudiway – smoothing IT integration after Mergers & Acquisition

Within the current IT landscape and emerging adoption of Cloud platforms and applications, it is inevitable that a business may either decide to change Cloud vendors, or will move between tenants during mergers & acquisitions. Unfortunately, when a business is in this situation, there are many inadequacies with the standard tools, which most will be unwilling to accept as the current technical approach is weak. In addition to the logistical challenge of transferring data, it is in areas such as coexistence and end-user business process continuity where the greatest challenges can arise and need close attention. As an example, for Office 365, the direct migration between two tenants is not available and will instead require off-boarding mailboxes on-premises before on-boarding to the new tenant. For most businesses, this is non-viable from a commercial or business continuity-perspective.

In view of this, Silversands has selected a solution from Cloudiway which provides direct tenant to tenant migrations. The solution not only provides direct content migrations (SharePoint, Mailbox, OneDrive), but also provides coexistence capabilities during the migration itself to ensure that the transition can be staged for larger more complex pieces of work.

Silversands has trained Consultants in this area and can help to build and deliver a managed program of work to suit the needs of its customers in a complex mergers & acquisition scenario.
