Although Microsoft has many more benefits, such as reliability and security, enterprises still have reservations about migrating to Office 365 due to the implementation difficulties.
Although Office 365 deployment may seem simple, there are many considerations that must be taken into account. Each organization is unique and will require different solutions.
Here are the top four major risks that enterprises must consider when implementing Microsoft office 365.
Access issues: How a business approaches its core infrastructure and domain are crucial to its success. To begin exchange online deployment, domain access (domain verification using clouds) is essential. Companies without domain access will face delays in deployment and risk.
Mitigating risk: Office 365 has many potential failures. For example, email protection, authentication, or online protection could all fail. If you are concerned about Office 365 going down, you will need to plan how users will access their electronic mail. You will need to find an alternative solution that allows you to keep your services running even if Office 365 is down.
Spam filtering: This is one of the most difficult aspects of Office 365. There are many vendors that can provide layers of security for your messaging, some based at the gateway, some at the client. The options are significantly reduced when you move to Office 365.
Data loss: Office 365 customers are often concerned about data loss. Microsoft's backup policies can not guarantee a quick and complete recovery of lost data. Data retrieval can be complicated and time-consuming, even if it is possible. Retention policies differ for each cloud application.
