Damson Cloud can help your organisation evaluate the cloud solutions for communication and collaboration. Many organisations struggle to discover the best tools for providing true collaboration and effective communication within teams. We have been in the cloud consulting business for over a decade and our experience has helped hundreds of companies like yours evaluate the tools, train the teams and manage the change for employees from one solution to another.
The deployment is one of the most important parts of your cloud journey. Whether you’re deploying a core toolset like G Suite or an additional tool like Happeo, it is important to know the pitfalls and strategies to mitigate against the risks. Something that only comes with experience and at Damson Cloud we have a lot of it!
We help organisations with
Planning in any deployment is important as most IT professionals will know, however with a move to the cloud such as migrating to G Suite it is even more important as you are about to change how your employees work. It is important to consider how much data needs to be migrated, what systems integrate with your current environment, what will security look like in this new cloud environment and much more.
Change Management is part of any G Suite deployment that we do at Damson Cloud. The technology is important but even more important is bringing the people along with you. You need to communicate clearly with staff what change is coming and why your organisation has decided to move everyone to Google’s platform. Change Management also includes executive sponsorship as a G Suite deployment is not an IT project but a change project with an element of IT. We need to ensure there is buy-in at the highest level within your organisation. Ideally we want the CEO to announce the new platform that is going to help transform the organisation and create a more innovative way of working.
Migration is such a huge area of a deployment and important to get right. Users expect all their data to be moved over and whether its email, calendar, contacts or documents it is our job along with the IT team to ensure this data is migrated efficiently and that data integrity is maintained. We have heard so many horror stories over the years of companies trying to migrate data themselves expecting it to be a simple process only to find after several months that they have damaged the reputation of the IT team, the platform and themselves. With a trusted Google Partner by your side the risks around data migration while not eliminated are dramatically reduced.
Damson Cloud has an incredible track record for data migrations and we pride ourselves on ensuring customers get the best possible service and that when things go wrong as can happen with technology we are there to support them and find a strategy and solution together.
