Find me at Microsoft Ignite – Sessions, Podcasts and Practical 365

I’m at Microsoft Ignite this week with 26,000 other IT Pros learning about what’s new in Microsoft 365 – and on-premises. It’s going to be a busy week at the firehose of announcements but also a great chance to dive in and find out about how to do this stuff in the real world.

Is your company getting together with another and merging? Splitting up and selling off a division? Or growing the family and adopting a new business unit? If you are in Office 365 then the words merger, divestiture, or acquisition might send you into a blind panic! How will you move accounts, settings, and data from one Office 365 subscription to another? Fear no more! Learn how to plan and migrate from one tenant to another using both the built-in Microsoft capabilities, and where you’ll need them, third-party tools.

Talk to me about Practical 365

If you’re reading this, then it’s likely you know Practical 365 too. It’s one of the best resources on the internet for practical guidance for deploying Office 365 and the wider Microsoft 365. Myself and Sigi have taken on responsibilities as editors for the site – and we need you!
