These general steps apply whether you are migrating from Gmail or another IMAP system.
First you have to create your users in Microsoft 365 or Office 365 and assign licenses to them. The mailboxes have to exist in Microsoft 365 or Office 365 to use IMAP migration.
Prepare your IMAP source email system and get the information you need to migrate. If you plan to migrate your domain to Microsoft 365 or Office 365, verify that you own your domain with your domain registrar.
Depending on which type of email service you are migrating from, you might need to configure some settings or simply record the name of your email server or service to use later. You also need to verify your domain in your domain registry system if you have a custom domain.
Communicate changes to users.
It’s a good idea to let users know about the email migration and how it impacts them. Give users information about what tasks need to be done before, during, and after migration.
Set up admin credentials or get or reset user email passwords.
To perform the migration, you need an administrator account that has permissions, or the username and password to each mailbox.
If you are using the steps described in Migrate Google Apps mailboxes to Microsoft 365 or Office 365 or Migrate other types of IMAP mailboxes to Microsoft 365 or Office 365, you will create a list of mailboxes to migrate (CSV file). These migrations instructions start from the Exchange admin center, and you will need to create a CSV file that lists the email addresses, usernames, and passwords for the mailboxes you want to migrate.
You can also use the migrations page or setup instructions in the Admin center preview to migrate from IMAP systems such as Gmail, Hotmail.com or Outlook.com. These steps are the best if you plan to migrate mail for only a few users (less than 50). If you are migrating mail for more users it is easier to use a CSV file to enter all the information for the accounts.
Connect Microsoft 365 or Office 365 to the source email system.
To migrate email successfully, Microsoft 365 or Office 365 needs to connect and communicate with the source email system. To do this, Microsoft 365 or Office 365 uses a migration endpoint, the settings that are used to create the connection.
Migrate mailboxes and then verify the migration.
To migrate mailboxes, you create a migration batch, and then start the migration. After the migration batch is run, verify that the email was migrated successfully.
Optimize email settings (optional).
There are some settings you can configure so that it doesn’t take as long for email to start showing up in your new Microsoft 365 or Office 365 mailboxes. See Tips for optimizing IMAP migrations.
Begin routing email to Microsoft 365 or Office 365.
You need to change a DNS record called an MX record so that your email system can start routing mail to Office 365.
Verify routing and then stop email synchronization.
After you verify that all email is being routed to Microsoft 365 or Office 365, you can delete the migration batch to stop the synchronization between your source email system and Microsoft 365 or Office 365.

Desktops-as-a-Service or simply DaaS, securely delivers virtual apps and desktops from the cloud to any device or location. This desktop virtualization solution provisions secure saas and legacy applications as well as full Windows-based virtual desktops and delivers them to your workforce. DaaS offers a simple and predictable pay-as-a-go subscription model, making it easy to scale up or down on-demand. This turnkey service is easy to manage, simplifying many of the IT admin tasks of desktop solutions.
How does DaaS work?
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) delivers virtual applications and desktop services via a public or private cloud service. Your workforce can access this service through an internet connection via an html-based web browser or a secure application downloaded to a device such as a laptop, desktop, thin client or tablet.
DaaS is offered as a subscription service and is multitenant in nature. The backend virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) infrastructure, including the virtual machines that run desktop operating systems, is hosted by a third-party cloud provider. The DaaS provider then streams the virtual desktops to a customer’s end-user devices.
DaaS providers manage the VDI deployment, as well as the maintenance, security, upgrades, data backup, and storage. And the customer manages the applications and desktop images. DaaS is a good choice for organizations that don’t want to invest in and manage their own on-premises VDI solution.

SharePoint has become a platform for secure collaboration in many organizations all around the globe. Especially after the introduction of SharePoint Online. Because of this popularity, most companies have grown used to using SharePoint on a daily basis. As a side effect, the SharePoint site collections have been growing more and more ever since. SharePoint can handle tremendous data sizes, that is not the problem. The problem occurs when you need to migrate SharePoint. There is no automatic native path for this task – that is why admins learn to fear the phrase “SharePoint Online migration”. Let’s change that.
Migrating SharePoint, no matter if it is migration between tenants, migrate sharepoint 2010 to sharepoint online, or even migration between site collections, does not have to be a manual nightmare.
