Frequently Asked Questions

Have a different question and can’t find the answer you’re looking for? Reach out to our team.

If users are keeping their existing Windows computers and laptops, is there anything special we have to worry about?

Probably. In most cases, those devices are joined to a local Windows Active Directory and/or Entra ID (formerly Azure Active Directory). In these cases, the devices will need to leave that directory and join a new one.

If we're bringing Windows or Linux servers with us, what impact will that have on the project.

Network access and management is something to take into account. If those servers are also leaving local Windows Active Directory/LDAP and need to be associated to a new directory where the user identities are required to access, this can require some upgrades or a migration to a new deployment.

If we're not sure how to handle the migration of servers and applications, but have pressure to at least get our users and desktops going in the new environment, is this possible?

Yes. However, this requires acceptance from the IT team from the source environment to allow some network connectivity and possible configuration on those servers to use Application Proxy or VPN for specific use cases.

Can we divest from one organization while being acquired or merging with a new or existing Microsoft 365 environment?

Yes. The tricky part here is mapping all the identities together and handling common/duplicates (e.g. and We often start with an Identity assessment and planning project to help guide all the teams to an agreeable plan and timeframe.

Can we use the same Multifactor authentication, security, and compliance polcies that we already have in our existing Microsoft 365 tenant a new one?

Yes. However, those policies would need to be reviewed as they be more than what you'll need and your new environment may be dramatically different. We have Assessment and Planning services that can take this into account.
