Move from Box to OneDrive and Teams

OneDrive for the WIN

For the past year, our team at Forsyte has spoken with organizations across Education, Commercial, Healthcare, and Government industries about moving from Box to OneDrive. The year has been one full of migrations away from Box and the changes have been positive for each client that has made the switch. The deciding factors for the moves have centered around 3 pillars: unforeseen Box cost increases, an effort to streamline solutions and security, and an all-up productivity focus. OneDrive has been the clear winner for storage and accessing data for many. 


See the Difference

Though not entirely apples to apples, we’ll lay out some of the features and benefits to highlight between Box and OneDrive. 



Take Advantage of What You Already Own

Streamlining solutions comes with a cost savings when moving to OneDrive when an organization already is using Office 365. OneDrive is included in Office 365 licenses and eliminates the third party costs associated with maintaining a separate cloud storage platform. It’s an exciting time in the cloud and we want to make sure that organizations take advantage of the tools already owned to make the most of working in the cloud.


Migrating to OneDrive 

Migrations are nothing to take lightly, and for some organizations, they might be the main reason for unsettling feelings and wariness about shifting between solutions, such as migrating from Box to OneDrive. We understand the concern and agree that it can go terribly wrong if you don’t have the right partner leading the charge. That’s where we come in.

No matter the size or the scope, a better Box to OneDrive migration lies in how you plan, assess, and remediate your source environment. As a migration go-to partner for numerous Microsoft-focused businesses, Forsyte has an impressive track record of massive and complicated migrations that stand as proof of the level of service expertise.


Planning a Migration

Planning is always at the center of successful migrations. When an organization is heavily utilizing Box, it’s important to assess and plan accordingly for a smooth transition. Understanding the full scope of the Box to OneDrive migration is imperative to success, so that is a large part of our focus when moving clients. Understanding how and where people have stored files, the size of the files, and the types of the files are part of the equation. When you move files and notes from Box, where will they fit within OneDrive and how will you set up your filing and naming system…the answers to these questions determine the flow of the migration.
