Microsoft Office 365 Tenant Mergers
Complexity requires experience
Complexity requires experience
Organizations are constantly in flux. Either through native growth or perhaps when one organization acquires another. Merging two organizations is tough enough to plan and properly execute, but what about the technical infrastructure?
With more than 155 million active business users in Microsoft Office 365, chances are that one or more companies being acquired are already using this service. Because each Office 365 tenant is uniquely separated from all others in the Microsoft Cloud, there is no native way to “flip a switch” to bring two of them together.
Since so many business services operate in Office 365, it is imperative that these cloud based services, when merged, be properly executed and communicated to everyone involved. Technical enablement is important, but just as important is proper communications to everyone impacted.
There are tasks that administrators in Office 365 do each day and then there are tasks that very few will ever need to perform. Merging two or more Microsoft Office 365 organizations together can be a complicated process. Email must continue to flow just right within, between, and externally of the impacted organizations. Instant messaging, phone calls, and rich collaboration must continue to be reliable and instant forms of communication. Access to files, websites, custom applications, and other critical business functions must remain and come together smoothly. Compliance and legal holds on
data can add another layer of complication. And perhaps most importantly, users must be made aware, trained, and well prepared for the impending changes so they do not impact their job functions. These tasks requires a proven methodical approach by a Microsoft Partner with experience.
Because this is a complicated project important to the success of a merger, consider bringing in the experts who specialize in this area. With tried, proven, and a solid methodology, you must seek help.
There are many ways to perform these migration tasks, but there is only one right method to follow for your organization. A qualified Microsoft Partner with experience will pave a solid path for your success.

Let our team of digital workplace architects guide you through the many complexities you will encounter during this project. Our methodology is based on experience that we use starting with our initial meeting to understand the scope of the project until the final project close-out presentation. We will interview the key personnel involved with the merger, work with the technical team to understand your complete infrastructure design, sit down with business leaders to make sure we have a deep understanding of business processes and the role technology plays, and then work with the user team to understand their job responsibilities and how they use technology. We then bring all of this together to work with you on a recommended way forward based on our expertise, modifying it as needed throughout our discussion. In the end, we will have a complete, end-to-end approach for a successful merger of your cloud environments.
Trifecta Security is offering a complimentary assessment for your organization to explain many of the complexities a project like this involves. Based on our initial conversation, we will highlight the simple and complex portions of the project, tell you about some of the mistakes we have seen on this journey, highlight the steps in our methodical approach, and how we may be able to help in your success.
We are experts with a white-board and will use it to help further explain the technical and organizational challenges you may expect to encounter. So please have a white-board available, plenty of dry-erase markers, and allow us to take you on a journey as we explain how Microsoft Office 365 tenants are merged together based on our years of experience.
