Using third-party tools to perform Exchange-to-O365 migrations can be extremely costly, especially for small businesses with very little IT budget available.  Using the FREE native tools that Microsoft provides vastly reduces hard costs, but using them can be confusing.  As such, I’ve authored this outstanding course on performing an Express Migration from an on-prem Exchange environment to Office 365 by leveraging a Minimal Hybrid solution.

In this course, the student will learn how to prepare for (and perform) an Express Migration from an on-premises Microsoft Exchange 2013 server to Office 365 / Exchange Online using a Minimal Hybrid approach.

Topics covered include:

  • Adding and Verifying Domains in O365
  • Preparing Active Directory for the Migration
  • Preparing the On-Premises Exchange Organization for Migration
  • Deploying and Running the Hybrid Migration Wizard
  • Deploying and Configuring Azure AD Connect 
  • Migrating Mailboxes to O365 via the Native EAC
  • Performing the Cutover to O365
  • Re-Routing Email to Office 365
  • Assigning Licenses to O365 Users
  • Post-Migration Tasks & Cleanup

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to successfully plan, prepare for, and perform an Express Migration from Exchange 2013 to Office 365 using a Minimal Hybrid approach.
