For more information, see Google to Office 365 Migration
How can I start to migrate Gmail to Office 365?
The best way to get started with an Google to Microsoft 365 migration – or any migration – is to contact a SkyKick Migration Suites service provider. They can share detailed information on Pre-Migration Prep Guide, Migration Planning and Configuration, Migration Monitoring and Management and Getting Started Guide for Microsoft 365.
What kind of data can be migrated in a Google to Office 365 cloud migration?
SkyKick migrates server-side data, including email, calendars, tasks, contacts, shared mailboxes. SkyKick technology also provides the best transition from Google’s email label organizational structure by giving you the option to map the migrating mail to either folders or categories in Outlook, whichever is best for you.
SkyKick also migrates local client-side data, including auto-complete and email signature blocks.
What makes SkyKick Migrations different from other Gmail to Office 365 migration tools?
We built the SkyKick Migration Suites to provide IT partners with an automated migration tool to accelerate their customers’ cloud transformation with comprehensive planning, accurate provisioning, no lost data, and a great end-user experience. Unlike other Microsoft 365 migration tools that focus primarily on moving server-side data—one step in a comprehensive migration-consulting project—SkyKick technology automates up to 90% of the manual effort and enables partners to effectively manage all of the essential steps across the entire migration project.
How does SkyKick reduce the risk of data loss in Google to Office 365 migrations?
SkyKick migration technology automatically processes data at the nearest regional Microsoft Azure data center in the country where the Office 365 tenant specified in the Migration Planner is located. All email content remains in the region during a migration. This includes compute, path of information from source to destination, and storage of metadata/state files. This information is transferred directly from source server to Office 365. At no time are data written to disk, stored, or taken possession of by SkyKick.
How long does it take to migrate Gmail to Office 365?
Because no two migrations are identical, it is difficult to predict precisely how long it will take to migrate email from Google to Office 365. This is due to a variety of factors, including Google data transfer limits, migration method, data type and density, network performance, end-user engagement, and throttling, that can extend the duration required to complete the migration. However, SkyKick makes it easy to schedule and adjust a migration date, scope, and requirements, depending on the desired timeline.
How does SkyKick handle Google Labels in a Google to Office 365 migration?
Instead of using Folders for email organization, Google uses Labels, which are similar to Outlook Categories. Because many end users may prefer this organizational strategy, SkyKick technology gives you and your customer the choice of either mapping the migrating email to Folders or Categories in Office 365. This choice must be made on the Final Review tab of the Migration Planner, prior to placing the order.
How do SkyKick migrations interact with directory synchronization (e.g. AD Connect)?
Directory synchronization is not required for Office 365 or SkyKick Migrations. However, if the company being migrated wants to implement directory synchronization, SkyKick technology can still be used. For more information, see Configuring Active Directory Synchronization for an Office 365 Migration.
Is SkyKick HIPPA compliant?
SkyKick conforms to all the HIPAA requirements of a Business Associate. It can therefore sign and fulfill the elements contained in its Business Associate Agreement (BAA) (once completed and signed by a covered entity performing the migration). The BAA contains the elements specified at 45 CFR 164.504€, including:
- A description of the permitted and required uses of protected health information by SkyKick.
- The provision that SkyKick will not use or further disclose the protected health information other than as permitted or required by the contract or as required by law
- Requirements to use appropriate safeguards to prevent a use or disclosure of the protected health information other than as provided for by the contract.
