What’s the difference between Office 365 and Microsoft 365?
Office 365 and Microsoft 365 are both cloud-based tools offered by Microsoft to help you be more productive. However, Microsoft 365 is the newer and more advanced version, with more features and services. Office 365 includes the basic Office apps like Word and Excel, as well as some other tools like OneDrive and Teams. On the other hand, Microsoft 365 includes everything that Office 365 has, but also includes advanced security features and tools for managing devices and users. Microsoft 365 is generally more expensive and is targeted towards larger businesses and organisations, while Office 365 is targeted towards smaller businesses and personal use.

Work from anywhere
Even before the pandemic and lockdown restrictions, more and more companies were moving to a remote working model. The benefits are numerous – more flexibility, often greater productivity, reduced overheads, improved company morale and access to an increased talent pool.
With Office 365 and Microsoft 365, your employees, colleagues and clients will be able to access what they need to – no matter where they are. You won’t need to sort out VPNs or spend valuable time sending multiple email attachments. Your team will just need an internet connection to log in to their Microsoft account, with all your files stored at a single data source thanks to the secure Microsoft data centre.

Because Microsoft 365 is an online service based in the cloud, you’ll receive instant, automatic updates. That means you’ll be using the very latest versions of all your favourite apps without any delay. No more waiting hours to manually download updates or facing that annoying ‘no longer supported’ error message.
Because your colleague will be logged in and online, every member of your network will be using the latest versions of Microsoft app – streamlining your day to day work, speeding up efficiency and ensuring you achieve the best possible results.
With applications guarded by SSL/TSL encryption and constant Microsoft security audits, you’re guaranteed security for your business with Microsoft 365.

The Microsoft 365 migration process with Valto
At Valto, we may be serious about Microsoft, but we’re just as passionate about creating customised business plans that enhance productivity, improve service and create more digital opportunities. When you contact us, we take the time to get to know you, your business and your product, so we can recommend only what you need and only what will work for you.
Audit and Consultation
A Valto Microsoft 365 migration project begins with an initial consultation and audit. We’ll assess your current on-premises architecture – everything from data management and file storage to account mailboxes and cyber security.
Your dedicated migration expert will be on hand to answer any questions you have, and then take over ownership of the migration plan. We’ll take care of all the legwork and admin, so the entire process is hassle free.
What type of Microsoft 365 migration do you need?
The type of migration you need, and the steps that will need to take place, will differ depending on the size of your enterprise, the migration timescale, the amount of data you need to move, and where you’re moving it from – for example, migrating from Google apps to Microsoft 365 servers.
A cutover migration to Microsoft 365 moves everything over in one go. Items are taken from your on premises Exchange server and migrated smoothly over so every user has a dedicated Microsoft account. We recommend cutover migrations for companies with no more than around 2,000 mailboxes to transfer.
As the name suggests, a staged migration takes steps to move all your data from Exchange 2007 or older to Microsoft 365’s Exchange Online system. Staged migrations are fine for medium sized businesses operating a legacy Exchange server, though Exchange 2010 or Exchange 2013 accounts won’t be able to use this migration method.
Tenant to Tenant Migration
Office 365 tenant migration involves moving your Microsoft workloads from one profile to another, typically for transferring email data. It’s important to seek expert help from a Microsoft Partner like Valto to ensure a seamless and secure migration without losing any data. Valto offers Microsoft tenant migration services with no downtime or data loss, backed by years of experience in IT support for business mergers and acquisitions. With robust MX backups and 24/7 troubleshooting, Valto ensures a flawless migration process that won’t hinder your organisational performance.
We would usually recommend a hybrid migration model for larger businesses. To complete a hybrid switch, your business will need to currently operate on Exchange 2010 or newer.
