In this article, we will share about Avepoint Fly and the migration From Google Workspace To Microsoft 365. As organizations embrace digital transformation, the need for robust productivity and collaboration tools has become paramount. While Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) has been a popular choice, many enterprises are recognizing the comprehensive capabilities of Microsoft 365, prompting a strategic shift. However, migrating from one platform to another can be a complex endeavor, requiring careful planning and execution. At Microsoft, we understand the intricacies involved in such migrations, which is why we offer a range of solutions to ensure a smooth migration from Google Workspace to Microsoft 365.

Migration Strategies

Every organization has unique requirements, which is why we provide three distinct migration strategies:

  1. Lift & Shift: For organizations seeking a rapid migration, the Lift & Shift approach allows for bulk file transfers without extensive restructuring. This method is ideal for organizations with limited compliance requirements and non-sensitive data.
  2. Classic Discovery + Migration: This strategy involves a thorough assessment of your existing data, identifying which content can be supported by Microsoft 365. It also establishes a well-defined content structure and implements basic transfer policies.
  3. Detailed Discovery + Migration: For organizations with stringent compliance requirements or sensitive data, the Detailed Discovery + Migration approach is recommended. This comprehensive process identifies sensitive files, redundant content, and implements robust policies for secure data transfer and cleanup procedures.

Why AvePoint Fly?

The benefits of the right migration tool go beyond the accuracy and swiftness of the migration. What makes FLY invaluable is the unique gains it provides:

  • Less cost since there’s no need to pay for infrastructure for the cloud.
  • Easier support for file systems due to it being an on-premises solution, avoiding the need for multiple tools for multiple types of data.
  • Unlike most SaaSFLY only needs the support of PowerShell (and not AWS) to migrate data, bringing better security because of the direct connection to Microsoft.
