Microsoft is once again changing something in the Office 365 product portfolio. But this time, in my opinion, for the better. There are also new products for private persons, more about that later, but more important are the changes for companies. These are primarily name changes, whether for good or bad is a matter of personal opinion. Already in the past, customers have often mixed up the names.Continue reading “New names for Office 365 and Microsoft 365”
This article is part of my migration from my old Office 365 to my new Microsoft 365 Tenant. It is also about setting up Office 365, the other Microsoft 365 topics will follow later. I also have written this article intentionally so that it can also be used for setup outside of a migration scenario. Part 1 was about choosing the right edition, setting up the account and configuring the domains and DNS.Continue reading “Setting up Office 365 – Part 2”

This article is part of my migration journey from my old Office 365 to my new Microsoft 365 Tenant. This article is about mail traffic during the migration and how to avoid data loss.
In May 2015 I have already written the article “Migration from one Office365 Tenant to another Office365 Tenant“. I will adopt and adapt the relevant parts from the old article here.Continue reading “Preparing the mail flow for the Office 365 migration”
As MCT, I have a developer tenant for Office 365, and this year we are finally getting access to the Microsoft 365 function, i.e. Enterprise Mobility and Security. The disadvantage is that a new tenant is required and so a migration is pending. But at the same time, a lot of things have to be set up from scratch. I take the opportunity to write a series of blog posts directly from this.Continue reading “Migration from an Office 365 to a new Microsoft 365 Tenant – The approaches to migration”
This time an article slightly outside the Microsoft world. This time there is an excursion into monitoring and the monitoring of web servers under Linux. Some know this, nothing is worse than when the website you want to visit is not reachable. Since this happened to me 2 times in 2 days, the web server has hung up and I could not find the error, something had to be done.Continue reading “Website monitoring with PRTG”
Since I’m very busy with deployment and rollouts, I thought I’d write a few basic articles that I could refer to.

The Christmas card was created by my wife Kerstin.
Soon it is time, for Windows 7 the extended support ends on 14.01.2020. As with every end of operating system support the end comes “completely surprising”, okay, not really. At the beginning everything looks so far in the future, it is still x years time. But in the end, the problems appear.
I already saw this at the “surprising” end of XP. But there are also cases where migration is not so easy. Special problem areas can be interfaces to special Hardware. For instance, measuring workstations or production control systems. If a measuring instrument with current Windows 10 support directly costs a few tens of thousands of Euros, then you consider the investment.Continue reading “End of the Windows 7 Life-Cycle – Migration approaches from the field”

Typically, such a concept is created when a large number of computer installations are required. Here are a few examples where it can be useful to rethink the previous way of working:Continue reading “The possibilities of computer installations for businesses”
