Certain factors need to be considered before you make plans to migrate to Microsoft cloud. However the whole path can be made easy by using Microsoft Office 365 environment. One needs not to take the transition to the cloud lightly.
A question has been raised as to whether organizations will save money if they migrate to Microsoft Cloud. The whole process of transitioning from the already established infrastructure to the cloud environment is a huge undertaking. Microsoft is however encouraging different organizations of different sizes to start the migration operations to the cloud only when Office 365 is available.
This will ensure a smooth transitioning process. Microsoft Office 365 is composed of cloud versions of the SharePoint 2010, Microsoft Lync Server and Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. Other subscriptions of office 365 will contain access to the Microsoft Office Professional Plus together with Microsoft Office Web apps.
The main question being asked is how transitioning to Microsoft Office 365 is likely to affect the domain names. SharePoint, Lync and Exchange are clear that they all depend on the Active directory.
The way in which your domain names will be affected will depend on if you will choose to use identity federation and whether you will still maintain on premises active directory. For people who will decide to continue with the host of active directory, they can implement a partial re-delegation process.
Before adding the domain to Microsoft Office 365, one has to give sign in credentials just to prove that you are the owner of the domain name. According to Royal Discount, it may take your team a while to get used to the process when working with groups and users in a Microsoft Office 365 environment.
Microsoft will provide you with the interface instead of exposing the users of computers console and the active directory in the process of migrating to Microsoft cloud. The administrative console will have a mechanism for managing and creating user accounts.
