Challenges

Earlier, our client was using Yahoo mail service. Data migration via DMS and GSMME was not allowed. An IT professional will have a tough time dealing with the problem caused by the local host email service. Yahoo does not support MDM, Drive, or other compliance features.

Solution

With the recommendation and support of Shivaami Cloud Services Pvt.Ltd, D&H Sechron made the switch to Google Workspace (G Suite) Basic Plan on October 16, 2020.

Shivaami guided D&H Sechron through a comprehensive migration process. The Shivaami project management team organized planning meetings, established success criteria, chose the initial set of Google Workspace (G suite) products and features, and handled any problems that occurred.

The deployment services consisted of

  • Provisioning of Google Workspace Account.
  • Migrated Email through DMS.
  • Mail Routing.
  • Device Management.
  • Document Collaboration using Google Docs and Drive.
  • Google Workspace Security checklist discussed.
  • File storage and File share using Google Drive.
  • Change Management and online training.

The program was introduced. Changes were made to DNS settings, network access to Google Workspace (G Suite) was tested, desired settings were enforced, user accounts were provisioned, and user data was imported into Google Workspace using various methods.

Result

D&H Sechron successfully completed the data migration process for all of its users in the Google Workspace (G suite) platform within 20-25 days, and the stakeholders/employees were very happy, based on the feedback provided. Users got the most out of Workspace by using familiar emails, contacts, calendars, and Drive appointments.

With Google Workspace (G suite), spam is now kept to a minimum with the appropriate spam filters.

Enabling device management policy, Drive and the Compliance settings allowed the internal IT team to control Gmail set up accounts.

The IT team will now devote more time to business continuity and other regulatory compliance. They believe that every issue can now be resolved efficiently.

The ease-of-use and stability of Google's cloud-based communication and collaboration tools replaced the problems and frustrations created by their old system.
