CASE STUDY

A large insurance acquisition in Thailand required a complex consolidation of Microsoft Office 365 tenants

“Power365 helped our client with their merger integration by moving users, mail, content, and domains from one Office 365 tenant environment to another without downtime or user disruption.”

— Thanapol Balawongse, Head of Cloud Business, M.I.S. Outsourcing

 

The Challenge

The insurance division of a large financial services enterprise in Thailand was being acquired by a large Pan-Asian insurance provider and needed to be consolidated into the acquirer’s IT environment. Both organizations had complex IT environments that leveraged Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud for user productivity and collaboration.

To facilitate a fast, seamless and secure transformation, they would need assistance from experts in migration along with a software solution for migrating the users, mail, SharePoint content and domains from the acquired company’s tenant to the acquiring company’s tenant.

Given the sensitivity of the data needing to be migrated, there were rigorous requirements for security and compliance. In addition, the project would need to be completed within a very short timeframe and real-time visibility of the migration project would need to be provided to multiple project stakeholders.

The Solution

The client brought in M.I.S. Outsourcing Company Limited (MISO) to assist with the tenant consolidation project. To help automate the project, MISO selected Binary Tree’s Power365® Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution.

Power365 was a proven solution for moving users, mail, SharePoint content and domains between Office 365 tenants. Power365 also allowed users to communicate from a unified email domain whether they were still on the old domain or had been migrated to the new tenant.

The Results

Based on the efforts of experts from MISO and Binary Tree, along with the use of the Power365 SaaS solution, the tenant consolidation project was successfully executed. Plans were also being made for the next phase of the project to consolidate the Active Directory environments of the two organizations.

Thanapol Balawongse, the head of cloud business at MISO stated that “Power365 helped our client with their merger integration by moving users, mail, content, and domains from one Office 365 tenant environment to another without downtime or user disruption."
