Tenant or Faith Migration? The story of migrating 50+ tenants into one.

Da Vinci said simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. This is why multi-subsidiary companies merge their Microsoft tenants into one. A single view of their security infrastructure, better licensing agreements and enhanced collaboration. But how does that journey to simplicity look like? What happens when you migrate 50+ diverse tenants into one? Between ambitious deadlines, demanding leaders, confused users, and a technical Goliath to navigate, you are the David with a slingshot.

You must create an unbreakable bond between technical and change management leadership. Whilst the technical roadmap will be your guiding light to managing things like assessing your data variation or throughput options, you need to manage the thousands of people affected. Especially if migrating tenants means new tools, new ways of working and different cultures coming together.

In this session, I will share with you my experience as Change Manager from a client having to merge 50+ tenants into 1 for over 5,000 users globally. From defining user migration strategy, to aligning multiple roadmaps and breaking down cultural and business barriers, we will look at it all. Most importantly, how to champion your users in their interactions with business applications. Because managing the human impact of technology is the name of the game, and this is level 10 of Jumanji.
