So in this discussion we're going to focus on the different approaches to migration. It's not a step by step, we're not going to be taking you through a hybrid configuration or taking you step by step through the process of creating the migration batches and so forth, we're simply going to discuss the different approaches that are available to you so that you have a little bit better idea in terms of how you might proceed. Every environment is a little bit different. Some have smaller environments and they can do the migration over a weekend, others have environments that are quite large and require a bit of time to do it in stages, and others prefer to have it be a situation where they can move mailboxes up and down to the cloud and back when they choose. So our goal here is to discuss the various approaches so that you can see where your organization might fit. To start with we'll discuss a little bit about migration terminology, then we'll go through some of the tools you might use to do migration prep work. We'll go through the different circumstances that make for a better cutover migration, staged migration, or remote migration, and we'll talk about how to set up a hybrid configuration. At the end we'll conclude with a summary. Okay so let's get started.
