Features and Benefits

Skype for Business (on-premise) migration to Microsoft Teams requires detailed planning which is crucial as it involves network readiness and preparation, technical preparation, phone system integration, adoption, and finally, user migrations.  All these every task need to be planned and executed correctly.


Remember, these are all critical and tedious activities that encompass multiple manual tasks such as migrating users with their data including contact list (Buddy list), recurring meetings and voicemail greetings, etc. Additionally, there are different policy assignments as well.

Listed are some of the Skype for Business to Teams migration pain points and how a transition to Microsoft Teams is beneficial:

  1. Microsoft Teams is a purely cloud-only service, which means when you migrate the user to Teams, it has to sync all the user attributes and have all policies assigned in the cloud.

  2. In these critical times, the majority of organizations are trying to enable Teams licenses and migrate the  users causing a possible slowdown in processing. So sometimes migrating users may take a longer time, and policy assignment may take even more. In such a scenario, using a migration tool benefits to automate the process and complete it in a single step process.

  3. User migration also involves upgrading various Teams policies and assigning online voice routing policies, dial plan, emergency call routing policy, enabling the user for enterprise voice and calling policies  All these tasks done by our migration toolset which provides a seamless migration experience.
