What you'll learn

Implementing a Microsoft 365 deployment can sound like a daunting task, and if the planning process doesn’t take all the right things into consideration, it can be challenging and overwhelming. In this course, Planning a Microsoft 365 Implementation, we are going to introduce and discuss the different components involved with the planning process for a Microsoft 365 tenant, the Microsoft 365 components, upgrading to Microsoft 365, and data migration considerations. The planning process should include the three P’s (planning, planning, and more planning) and the three D’s (document, document, document) to ensure everything that needs to be planned for is in fact planned for, the decisions made in the planning process are well documented, and all the key stakeholders sign off on the plan that will be used to deploy and configure the Microsoft 365 tenant. By the end of this course, you'll be proficient in the planning process for Microsoft 365.
