THE COMPANY

Quiksilver is the world’s leading outdoor sports lifestyle company, designing, producing and distributing a diversified mix of branded apparel, wintersports and footwear.

The situation: Quiksilver, a multi-tenant environment

Since 1969, Quiksilver has maintained its commitment to quality and performance and taken this message around the world. Born on the beach, Quiksilver’s core concept of fashion with function has now been embraced by all who enjoy active outdoor lifestyles. After a global expansion in Europe, the company’s goal was to optimize collaboration within the organization and revise the IT infrastructure. The company’s rapid development spread resources on different Office 365 tenants. With the growing number of users, the multi-tenant environment added complexity and higher costs to the management of the IT infrastructure.

The goal: Migrate to a single tenant with no impact on users

To align IT and operational strategies, Quiksilver Inc needed a solution to merge two Office 365 tenants. Performance, data fidelity, ease of use and minimal impact on day-to-day business were Quiksilver’s main requirements.

Challenges and requirements: Volume, data fidelity and no downtime

During the planning phase, Quiksilver Inc. realized that free tools would not be able to handle a seamless migration. The project timeline was short and technical resources were limited. The need for a complete toolset ready to use including email migration and mail routing was vital to keep the business running during the migration.
