Migrating enterprise email systems to Microsoft with Air Cloud requires meticulous planning and careful execution. Here are the key steps to ensure a smooth and efficient transition:

Before full migration, pilot testing is carried out with a small group of end users. This helps identify and resolve potential issues before large-scale deployment.

Functionality and performance validation

Testing also ensures that all features operate as expected and that the system meets performance expectations.


Inform and train users

Clear communication is essential to minimize the impact on daily operations. It is important to inform users in advance of what they can expect and provide training to familiarize them with the new tools and processes.
