Receive consultative guidance on Office 365 deployment and migration with "Office 365 Deployment Shadowing" offerings


The Partner Technical Services team is excited to share a new initiative focused on helping you receive guidance and gain experience on all phases of an Office 365 deployment and migration project. This updated offering includes workload-specific guidance for Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Lync Online, all at a lower cost.

The O365 Deployment Shadowing Service is an offering focused on supporting partners during all phases of an Office 365 deployment and migration project.  As organizations around the world plan to buy and deploy Microsoft solutions, they look to skilled Microsoft partners to assist with their planning and deployments.  For partners new to the cloud, the first deal can be the hardest and cloud projects for larger customers can be complex. Through this program you will have access to a dedicated Partner Technical Consultant to remotely shadow your team, review your design, and make recommendations through the engagement. 

Program Benefits:

After completing this training, you will be able to:

  •  Achieve faster deployment times due to a standardized deployment methodology, and have a shorter time-to-value after purchasing Office 365.
  • Maintain consistency in deliveries across projects due to dedicated Partner Technical Consultants that can quickly review plans and recommend best practices as you develop real-life experience.
  • Be enabled to drive effective O365 deployments and migrations, minimizing the risk of post migration technical issues.

Each engagement will be delivered in four tracks:

The price varies by package selected. 5 Advisory hours are charged for Office 365 Onboarding,  10 advisory hours for a Medium (150-500 seat) engagement, and 20 advisory hours for a Large (500-2000 Seat) engagement. Deployments larger than 2000 seats should engage Microsoft Consulting Services for co-engagement assistance. Advisory hours are included as part of the Microsoft Partner Network benefits; Gold and Silver competency partners or Microsoft Action Pack Development subscription.
