Tenant to Tenant Migration
Acquisition scenario, we had to migrate the Microsoft 365 services from one tenant to other keeping the same domain name. Our proven project methodology was followed, proper planning and testing was done. There was a challenge of all systems being part of Azure AD domain and encrypted with bitlocker. The goal was to make it easy for users to move to new Azure AD Tenant. With proper planning, rigorous testing, choice of right migration tools and effective communication, we were able to achieve this to client satisfaction.
Digital Transformation for a client in Japan
Our client is a leading fintech provider based in Tokyo, Japan. They have been using AWS for their product; however, workplace services were still legacy and hosted as colocation. They have been using Exchange online just for mailboxes with different email gateways for email filtering. The business requirement was to plan and design a modern workplace environment that is secure, compliant, and removes the dependency on colocation infra and legacy services. A new AD DS environment was hosted on AWS, File Services migrated to AWS FSx, Emails migrated to a new Microsoft 365 tenant with all features including Azure AD conditional Access, DLP, Intune for OS and Application deployment, Windows Information Protection, and Azure Information Protection. All users migrated to a new tenant with SSO, all computers redeployed using Windows AutoPilot with the confidence of data security and compliance.
There are many use cases of using Desktop as a Service from cloud. This can be providing secure remote access to your staff in this new world we live in or short-term employees or it can be security when implementing BYOD. Our recent implementation was for a startup with about 12 users. A new company starting up with staff all around the world, we set up a centralized desktop environment and everyone can access it securely using any device they have. For employees, no hassles with work anywhere & from any device functionality and for business owners, peace of mind with systems always available, no need for costly & complex device management and centralized data which is backed up and secure. Quick implementation and cost-effective solution for business owners. The project was completed in 5 days. Let us know if you would like to see a demo!
Information Protection and Data Security
We see a lot of demand from businesses looking for a solution to protect their business data which is on the end-user devices. Our recent implementation was to achieve this for an SMB looking to classify and protect the business data. We Implemented the security solutions offered by Microsoft which included Azure AD premium, Azure Information Protection (AIP) and Intune. All systems were joined to Azure AD using Hybrid AD join and enrolled into Intune. Conational access was implemented to allow access only from hybrid domain-joined machines, sensitivity labels and policies were set up and Windows Information Protection (WIP) was deployed. The result was managed devices with data protection. Users can’t share business data outside unless justified.
Microsoft 365 to Microsoft 365 Migration Keeping the same domain name
With the change of business dynamics there a lot of cases where we need to perform tenant to tenant migrations. This can include mergers, acquisitions or divestitures. Being experts in Microsoft 365 migrations, we recently were awarded a project to migrate services (Exchange Online, One Drive for Business, SharePoint Online and Teams) from one tenant to another. We did careful planning and performed extensive testing with our proven methodology and tools, which includes information baseline, followed by a runbook and test cases list. A lot of potential issues were identified in the testing phase and mitigation was planned. Communication is key to the success of any migration project. Regular calls with stakeholders, advanced communication to users about upcoming changes, manuals and
guides to assist them after switchover helped us to overcome the challenges of migration. This is super important now as all users work remotely. Result was a successful migration of 100 users with about 2 TB of data in various services including SharePoint, Teams and Planner. Another successful case study for Mismo Systems!
Implementation of a secure workplace for an outsourcing startup
Whenever we talk about outsourcing, the first thing that comes to mind is compliance. Our client is entering an outsourcing business and was looking for a partner to advise & implement a secure working environment for the staff that will meet the security and compliance requirements of the client. Mismo Systems delivery team understood the requirements in detail, discussed with the end clients and answered their queries, designed, and implemented a modern and secure infrastructure using Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) and Microsoft 365 Business Premium (Modern workplace with security). AVD was secured using a firewall and technologies like conditional access, Multi-Factor Authentication and
Information protection is implemented. Result was a modern and secure workplace environment that meets the customer’s security and compliance requirements.

Migration of ERP to Cloud
Businesses of all sizes are considering cloud to host business critical workloads to reap the benefits such as anywhere access, increased availability, reduced dependency, and maintenance of on premises infrastructure and security. Our recent project was to evaluate and migrate Oracle based ERP for a manufacturer to Azure Cloud. Assessment of existing environment was done, business requirements evaluated, and the migration of Open Source based ERP was planned. ERP system is live now on Microsoft Azure and users can access it from anywhere with increased performance and availability. Mismo Systems has expertise in moving business critical workloads to the cloud smoothly, however, small, or big it is.
Hosting on AWS
The public cloud is powerful and it made difficult scenarios very easy. AWS is the leading cloud provider and we got the opportunity to host a website to support the mega-scale event, wherein millions of users will log in within a span of minutes. We utilized AWS Autoscale group and application load balancers with RDS to support this kind of scale. This would have been so difficult and costly to achieve without Public Cloud. With Pay as you Gothe cost was very less and we achieved desired performance with an excellent experience. Mismo Systems have experience in hosting enterprises applications. We will now work to make this even more effective by converting this to serverless deployment.
Enabling Secure Remote Working using AWS Workspaces
Our client is a service provider to regulated industries across the world. They need to ensure that the IT systems are compliant with the regulations their customers must follow. To enable hybrid working model, they were looking for a solution that can give the flexibility without compromising the security & compliance. Mismo Systems team suggested and build the solution on AWS using Amazon Workspaces. AWS Workspaces is a virtual desktop solution running on AWS. You can provision the desktops you need and pay as you go. The AWS environment was integrated with on premises ADDS for identity management and internet traffic was routed via on premises Firewall to take advantage of configurations (policies and c connectivity with client systems) already in place. Mismo Systems has expertise in enabled a modern and secure workplace based on the specific needs of their clients.
