Description

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.

Course Overview
Hello everyone. My name is Brian Alderman, and welcome to my course, Planning a Microsoft 365 Implementation. Just a little bit about me. I'm a Microsoft MVP, I'm an MCT, Microsoft Certified Trainer, for 22 consecutive years; lots of training. I've authored four books for Microsoft,  the last two are on SharePoint. I'm a speaker at several SharePoint and Office 365 conferences around the world. And I'm a trainer and consultant at my own company called MicroTechPoint. Microsoft 365 offers a suite of products and services that includes Office 365, the Windows 10 operating system, in addition to Mobility + Security, all of which could be deployed throughout your organization. Because of the numerous features of Microsoft 365, it is important to perform in-depth planning to ensure a successful Microsoft 365 deployment. In this course, we are going to introduce and discuss three major topics. First, an explanation and discussion on the components included in Microsoft 365. Next, we'll talk about considerations for creating your Microsoft 365 tenant. And thirdly, we'll talk about considerations for migrating your existing data to Microsoft 365, including email, as well as shared and personal files. By the end of the course, you'll know what needs to be carefully considered to successfully create a Microsoft 365 tenant and your options to migrate your existing data to your new Microsoft 365 tenant. However, heads up, before beginning the course, you should be familiar with your organization's planning policies and have a general understanding of Offiice 365, as well as the Windows 10 functionality, in addition to what type of data that needs to be migrated to Microsoft 365. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Microsoft 365 planning considerations with my Planning a Microsoft 365 Implementation course, available here at Pluralsight.
