Tenant to tenant migrations & co-existence
Combine, split or move between Office 365 tenants
When you need to migrate between Office 365 tenants (domains) moving data and users is just the tip of the iceberg, especially if you need multiple domains to co-exist seamlessly for any length of time.
- You need a mechanism for synchronising contacts and free/busy information to ensure co-workers can email and collaborate easily and communicate with clients throughout the migration – as though in a single domain.
- You may also need to consolidate the infrastructure of the merging organisations, starting with integrating the separate Active Directory (AD) instances into one.
- Not all of the organisations involved may be in the cloud – so there may be some complexity involved in integrating on-premises users and applications.
There’s other things to transfer across, including security, privacy, anti-spam and retention management settings. In fact, the amount of up-front planning involved to ensure a fault-free tenant migration can be daunting, with no ‘one size fits all’ third-party solution and no off-the-shelf solution from Microsoft.

OneDrive Tenant to Tenant Migration
Migrate a OneDrive environment to OneDrive or SharePoint Online in another tenant. We can help you audit and report on your existing environment to help plan, configure and selectively migrate content.
You can choose to keep or overwrite existing files at the OneDrive or SharePoint destination, as well as whether to migrate metadata such as file creation details.
Items migrated include:
Uploaded files (eg: .pdf, .jpg)
Consolidate Active Directory
As well as synchronising your AD environments in the first phase of your move, we can help you design the ideal AD schema for your new combined organisation.
This includes reviewing existing objects, groups, devices, data, security, policies etc., determining any changes to these components and planning for growth. We can also ensure any legacy AD naming structures and attributes are removed.
