Migrating from on-prem Active Directory to Azure Active Directory: A bigger bang for your buck

Profile Migration Challenges

As the world of IT moves more and more toward cloud-based solutions, some adaptations have gone smoother than others. The shift from on-premise active directory to cloud-based systems, such as Azure Active Directory, profile migration has often been a source of headaches.

Not only does Azure streamline sign-in on both internal and external resources, its single sign-on and multi-factor authentication helps protect businesses from 99.9% of cybersecurity attacks. However, when the move is complete, there is one issue remaining, manually migrating local user profiles, the cost of which can consume IT resources at companies large and small. And when time equals money, every minute saved counts.

Commonly, Microsoft’s User State Migration Tool (USMT) was one of the most popular migration tools. But without a clear path for migrating enterprise’s local AD profiles to Azure AD profiles, businesses could expect to spend countless hours and money transferring profiles for each registered PC. Or, at least that’s been the story until now.

Migrate to AAD with PCmover

Merging profiles to Azure Active Directory or cross-domain can now be done automatically with Laplink’s PCmover Profile Migrator (PPM), included in PCmover Enterprise. PPM makes migration to cloud-based AD a breeze and gives IT back hours of valuable time and resources.

You already trust Laplink as the service to save you time on data migration.
