First, let me thank the Microsoft Partners that have responded to my previous two blogs titled "PowerShell Advantage: Real Time Active Directory Integration with Email Archive Migration" and "PowerShell: No Experience Required – For Email Archive Migrations to Office 365" covering archive migrations via PowerShell. I was surprised at such a great response. In today's blog I want to continue to build on the partner benefits of PowerShell and archive migrations.
I’ve been talking to many Microsoft Office 365 Partners asking them why they almost always avoid the companion email archive migration project. One of the most common answers is: "we just don't have the knowledge of the many email archives and their particular idiosyncrasies; let alone attempt to migrate one of them." This answer baffled me since an archive migration can generate 3-5x the revenue of a single project not to mention, if done correctly, can generate a 90% profit. You may be asking yourself how….? Well, let me explain.
In todays blog we'll look at how PowerShell reduces the complexity of archive migrations all while providing efficiencies that current archive migration software cannot.
