Discover how a solar company used Microsoft collaboration tools to simplify and streamline company communication.
A solar company divesting from its parent organization needed to migrate their existing users and content from a combined on-premise and Microsoft 365 cloud environment to a cloud-only Microsoft 365 environment. Migrating to the cloud would modernize the user experience, reduce long-term costs, and reduce their hardware administration footprint.
Because this company is in the manufacturing and solar industry, its field workers are often on the job with limited access to internet and servers. With their legacy on-premises solution, accessing or updating needed information was often slow and complicated. The on-premises dependencies created latency issues, making it hard for users to log in quickly, and access data or information. Maintaining hardware at remote locations and having resources locally available was challenging and costly. The company was looking for a more sustainable and lightweight cloud solution that would provide efficient storage and access capabilities as they migrated to their own environment.
Move from On-Prem to the Cloud for Improved Team Collaboration
By migrating this solar company’s infrastructure to the cloud, they were able to simplify the user experience for Identity and Access Management, making it easier for users to access their infrastructure and data. With users, devices, and data in the cloud, Azure AD provided more secure remote access to the correct people. Maximizing Microsoft OneDrive and SharePoint offered users quicker load times by gathering and displaying only the desired info, rather than trying to load it all at once. By removing the need for physical hardware at remote locations, users can now focus on primary tasks, saving the company time and money.
Information is now more readily available across business teams as their collaboration technologies, including OneDrive, Microsoft Teams, and SharePoint now live in the cloud. This allowed for a streamlined user experience, as it is now possible to access up-to-date information from anywhere.
Migrating to the cloud gave this solar company the scalability for growth it was looking for. The company can now better store and maintain technologies, improve the user experience, and allow for future Microsoft integrations.
