Cloud Migration Services: Who is Moving To The Cloud?

We are asked frequently about who is moving to the cloud and why they are choosing to take that initiative.  Below is a list of different reason and scenarios.  At Interlink, we are seeing that Merger and Acquisitions are the #1 driver of the cloud.  Clients have given us these reasons for making the move:

    • Not enough capacity in either environment to consolidate all users
    • Start collaborating with a shared space with SharePoint and Lync right away with the consolidation teams
    • Quickly build bridges to share free / busy and global address lists
    • Be able to break or negotiate contracts with existing providers
    • Get IT costs covered in the integration budget
    • More flexibility and less cash outlay if one entity has a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement and one does not

Which Online Plans Include Yammer?

Microsoft’s purchase of Yammer means that they have a real social collaboration platform.  Plus, they have included it in Office 365 SharePoint and E Plans at no additional cost for Enterprise Agreement (EA) clients.  The bottom line is that any plan with SharePoint now includes Yammer if it is licensed under an EA.  We also predict that Yammer will become available to everyone as Microsoft’s consolidates the licensing tools for Yammer with Office 365 later this year.
