MessageOps offers services to help you and your team maximize your Office 365 investment. Our real-world training scenarios will create an immediate impact on your user community. Utilize our MessageOps experts to help migrate your data from corporate file shares and other platforms like Google Drive and Dropbox.
If you are an Office 365 user, OneDrive for business is included in most plans. MessageOps has worked with many organizations in developing their file sharing strategy. Users today want to be able to access any document from anywhere, on any device at any time. Until recently, the choices were BOX, Dropbox, Google Drive and a few others. But now that Microsoft’s file sharing has matured to a well-oiled machine, we have seen thousands of people move from these older platforms. Why are we seeing this migration? According to our clients, the main reasons are:
- COST OF THIRD PARTY FILES SHARING PLATFORMS like Google Drive – Since it’s part of Office 365, why spend money on an outside platform?
- SECURITY – Most of our clients are concerned about data leakage. Having company data residing in Shadow IT platforms like Dropbox is scary. Clients appreciate that they need to have better control of who has access to what and the ability to leverage Active Directory to manage permissions and credentials.
- MANAGEMENT – Administrators we work with appreciate having a consolidated console to manage, including all of their Office communications and collaboration information and security.
Working with many of your peers, MessageOps has developed a group of services that will assist you and your company to get the most out of your Office 365 investment. We help you create a security framework that is flexible to meet the needs of your business units, but maintain enhanced corporate security standards that IT and compliance demand. We have developed real-world training scenarios that will have immediate and meaningful impact with your user community. We have a tremendous amount of experience migrating data from corporate file shares, and platforms like Google Drive and Dropbox to OneDrive, as well as developing backup solutions to meet the needs of your business.
