IPSEN case study : Migrate GSuite to Office 365

Ipsen wanted to migrate GSuite to Office 365. The first difficulty was moving 5800 users and 17 TB of data in a seamless way and with no impact on day to day business. The requirement for a tool able to synchronize data from the source and target tenant with no business downtime was essential. Some other features were also mandatory to ensure success:

  • Co-existence of shared rooms & Calendars
  • Keep permissions from Google Drive to OneDrive
  • Use of a single tool for all data
