Case Study: Office 365 Migration for Curtis Wagner Plastics
Based in Houston, Texas, Curtis Wagner Plastics is a leading plastic manufacturer that prides itself in producing high quality products made in the USA. Curtis Wagner Plastics discontinued service with their existing vendor and needed a new email solution quickly. After experiencing a server crash, hard drive failures and connectivity issues with their email server, the Curtis Wagner team wanted a reliable way to back up and access their data. The team was ready to steer away from VPN usage and migrate to the Office 365 cloud-based email system.
IronEdge Group conducted the Office 365 email migration using SkyKick technology and Azure AD Connect to safely synchronize Curtis Wagner’s existing domain with the new Office 365 solution. When their server crashed during a historic ice storm, IronEdge was able to quickly transition to cloud-based domain services leveraging Azure Active Directory without needing to restore from backups. With the recently implemented Azure AD Connect, IronEdge was able to transition syncing Office 365 with Microsoft Azure Active Directory minimizing any user impact. To ensure data remained secure, the IronEdge team built redundancies in the IT systems so they would remain secure during unforeseen disasters or catastrophic events. The migration project gave the Curtis Wagner team access to important files from the cloud without relying on a VPN. This transition also provided added convenience and reliability for employees working from home.
Results and Benefits
Thanks to Curtis Wagner Plastics’ excellent communication and flexible timelines, IronEdge was able to implement the migration project smoothly and efficiently. Today, the Curtis Wagner team has peace of mind knowing their data is backed up and can be conveniently accessed from any location.
