What is Office 365?
Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based subscription service that brings together the best tools for the way people work today. It comprises of world-class office applications (e.g. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook etc.) and cloud-based, hosted services (e.g. Exchange Mail Service, SharePoint Collaboration Service, Skype Messaging Service [now called Microsoft Teams] etc.) for businesses of all sizes.
By combining best-in-class apps like Word, Excel and Outlook with powerful cloud services like OneDrive and Microsoft Teams, Office 365 is the best platform for collaboration today.
Built-in security features, integration with your on-premise infrastructure, integration with Azure (Cloud) – Microsoft Office 365 is probably the only cloud your business needs.

How can we help your business?
As a Microsoft Partner, Cloud Pursuit has extensive experience in consulting Office 365 products, license procurement and provisioning, migration (on-premise to the cloud), training, delegated administration and support.
Having deployed Office 365 since 2014, we have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and real-life experience while migrating a number of customers from their legacy collaboration platforms to Office 365 Enterprise and Small-Business editions.
Our approach to Office 365 migration is based on sound planning with a comprehensive risk assessment to ensure zero-downtime, zero-information loss and seamless service transition.
Why should you outsource Office 365 to Cloud Pursuit?
Office 365 is a complex product with multi-levels of configuration, security and integration options. Think of it as an aircraft cockpit, a lot of dials and switches – it requires a great deal of training and experience to use them correctly.
In-house IT teams are often engaged with day to day tasks and unable to deploy the rigour in leveraging the technology, or, need additional support to take benefit of all the features Microsoft introduces on a monthly basis.
This is where Cloud Pursuit’s expertise can help. We look at your needs carefully, make sure you buy the right Office 365 license and do not spend money where you shouldn’t.

Is outsourcing a risk to your organisation’s information security?
We believe otherwise! We see your internal IT department, and often its relatively junior member to have full administrative access to your senior executive’s mailboxes as a risk to information security.
We safe-guard all executive communications and ensure that all access control policies are strictly maintained at all times. No mailbox is made accessible to anyone in the company without written instruction by company’s designated personnel.
We have come across numerous instances where inadequate or wrong security posture has lead to unsolicited access to information. SharePoint document libraries are most vulnerable. Mailbox delegate permissions can be misused.
None of this can happen when we manage your Office 365 tenant as all actions by us are completely auditable and traceable.
We are migration experts!
Managing an email migration project is a complex process. You need to be absolutely sure that no communication history is lost during migration and all aspects of migration are completely traceable and auditable.
Also, migration must remain fully compliant from an information security perspective and without causing any downtime.

Also collaborative tools like Sharepoint, Yammer, Skype for Business has been very useful for us. Office 365 provides us complete flexibility in terms of scaling up and version management.

We had previously worked with Cloud Pursuit on a number of small projects and asked them to manage our on-premise to full in-cloud migration of Microsoft Exchange.
From the beginning, Sharad approached the project with professionalism and enthusiasm with all aspects of the migration planned to the nth degree through detailed conversations and documentation.
Our on-premise install consisted of roughly 250 mailboxes spread across two Exchange 2007 servers located at two different site locations.
Cloud Pursuit managed the whole project from beginning to end. This included updating domain tenant information, any additional license procurement, anti-spam and virus configuration, liaising with the domain name and DSN providers and providing detailed documentation to end users.
Due to the number of mailboxes and messages to migrate Sharad’s team worked around the clock to ensure that all essential work was carried out over a weekend. All that was required on Monday morning was a small configuration change to the users mail client for visibility of their new mailbox. Cloud Pursuit were then on hand for the next 48 hours to monitor mail flow and to address any issues that arose – however, there weren’t any!
I would definitely recommend Cloud Pursuit to manage your on-premise to the in-cloud migration of Microsoft Exchange.
JUST Lincolnshire is a small organisation with limited IT knowledge and awareness. Over the last decade we have used various IT solutions to attempt to meet our needs which resulted in a disjointed and inefficient approach to IT. Cloud Pursuit came highly recommended as the company to discuss our IT needs with. Cloud Pursuit were extremely approachable and helpful in our initial conversations and it soon became clear that not only did they have expert knowledge regarding Microsoft but they also were able to identify how this expertise could best help JUST Lincolnshire in our specific charitable mission. The friendliness and clarity in which Cloud Pursuit dealt with JUST Lincolnshire ensured that I had full confidence in putting our IT requirements in their hands. At no stage did I feel that I was being provided with a product I didn’t need but rather being given the right tools to ensure that JUST Lincolnshire was able to work in a smarter and more efficient way.
Cloud Pursuit have been available to answer any questions or queries that I may have and respond in a clear and practical manner that ensures that, not only is the issue resolved but I have the necessary ‘tools’ to deal with future issues.
I thoroughly recommend Cloud Pursuit to any organisation, large or small, who are looking for IT solutions. You will not be disappointed.
