Plus, Office 365 is favored by many businesses because of its security and flexible plans and subscriptions.
Here's how to implement Google Workspace migration to Office 365, you can choose according to your needs.
Common Way for Google Workspace to Office 365 Migration
Both Google Workspace and Office 365's admin center offer a manual or on-premises way of data migration. The whole process is divided into many stages, and each stage has multiple steps. Therefore, the process of this process is much more complicated than the third-party migration method, takes a lot of time to complete, and may fail if there is a slight error or network problem.
The whole process includes:
1. Verify that the two platform domains are the same;
2. Create a user in the target account;
3. Create a list of mailboxes for migration in a CSV file;
4. Create a Gmail IMAP migration endpoint;
5. Create migration batches and move mailboxes;
6. Update DNS records.

- Long and complicated process (creation of migration endpoints mostly fails);
- Human error can lead to the failure of the entire process;
- Technical expertise is required to perform the process correctly;
