Skype for Business migrations are complicated.
You cannot simply backup the data from the old system type and restore it in Skype for Business.
Migrating legacy UC, PBX, and voicemail systems to Skype for Business requires carefully considering how to move and transform a significant amount of data including profile information, settings, features, functions, etc. from the legacy platform to Skype for Business. If a Skype for Business migration project is not planned and executed properly, the risks can be unacceptably high and dangerous. There is an extensive list of considerations that must be taken into account to ensure a successful project. Some examples include:
- Identifying bad data and removing it before the migration
- Determining which phones and mailboxes will be moved in each phase
- Determining which features of the current system are being used and are important enough to migrate
- Simplifying user profiles to promote standardization
- Handling highly complex interdependencies
- Identifying unused phones and voice mailboxes so they are not migrated
- Scheduling migration steps to ensure zero downtime
- Determining how to take advantage of new features on the new system
- Many more
MigrationPro saves you significant time and effort (duration and cost).
MigrationPro greatly reduces the time it takes to migrate an organization’s communication platform to Skype for Business.
MigrationPro helps you tackle these time-intensive steps including:
- Gathering the source data
- Matching the data

MigrationPro reduces errors.
MigrationPro reduces the costly and embarrassing errors typically seen in migration projects. Errors can amplify the time and effort it takes to complete any IT project including UC, telecom, and voicemail migrations. There is nothing worse than experiencing unforeseen delays and anger from customers due to the many sorts of errors and omissions, such as the simple, fat-fingered migration errors that significantly impact a customer’s communication process and disrupt their business. By automating the migration process for your customers, you can avoid these types of embarrassing and costly mistakes.
MigrationPro handles complexity with ease.
MigrationPro handles even the most complex migration projects with ease. For example, end user organizations that have implemented the broad feature sets and functions of typical legacy communications platforms multiply the complexity factor by many times over. Migrating one or a group of users who have dependencies on other users who are not migrating will surely break business process flows. There are hundreds or thousands of these business function permutations from making sure shared line appearance users migrate together, and to an even greater extent, migrating those same users who may also be a member of a hunt group. In that case, all of the members of the hunt group would have to migrate along with the two original users, and in line, any further users who have any dependencies on even more users. The many permutations of this effect become so complex that it is not humanly possible to achieve without a programmatic tool like MigrationPro.
