Seamless Microsoft 365 Migration for ETICAS AI Research & Consulting


Thinking a Google Workspace migration to Microsoft 365 is an easy feat? Think twice. 
ETICAS Research & Consulting, a European-based leader in algorithmic auditing for identifying social bias in Artificial Intelligence, recently undertook a significant migration – seamlessly transitioning from Google Workspace to Microsoft 365. In this case study, we delve into the challenges faced by ETICAS, the strategic solutions implemented by ne Digital Europe Migration Team, and the remarkable benefits reaped by the organization.

Our team undertook the migration process from G-Suite to Microsoft 365 to ensure seamless transition of workflows to the new platform. Our migration service and migration support covers the complete lifecycle, from migration strategy and migration plan to real time cut-over day technical support.

Office 365 Migration Approach:

We cover full data migration for each collaboration tool with minimal disruption and full post-migration validation.
On the Google Cloud side, we start analyzing usage profiles and storage for their productivity tools with a G Suite to Office approach:

  • Google Drive cloud storage
  • Google Docs (Docs, Sheets, Slides)
  • Google Gmail
  • Google Sites
  • Google Teams
  • Google Workspace Directory
  • Google Meet

On the Microsoft Office 365 environment:

  • Microsoft Exchange Online
  • One Drive for Business cloud storage
  • Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Microsoft SharePoint
  • Microsoft Teams

Finally, we review if the organization has any sort of automation engine, apps, or business integration tooling that we can help transition to the Microsoft PowerApps platform.

Ensuring a successful migration does not only cover a migration tool and technical aspects. We understand and value a migration project is all about people, their work, and making their lives easier with a user friendly approach. Small businesses and businesses of all sizes share a common goal: Seamless integration, zero downtime, and full use of their security features.


The results of the migration were impressive:

  • 100% Operational Services: All ETICAS employees had fully operational services in the Microsoft 365 environment on the cut-over day.
  • Zero Data Loss: No emails or files were lost during the transition from the Google Workspace environment.
  • On-Time and On-Budget: The migration was executed 100% on time and within the specified budget, demonstrating the efficiency and effectiveness of the ne Digital Migration Team's approach.

Tech Stack:

The ne Digital Migration Team leveraged a robust tech stack to facilitate a smooth transition:

  • Microsoft 365 Business Premium Licensing (Pricing and functionalities guidance)
  • M365 Express Lite - Microsoft 365 Managed Services Plan
  • Microsoft 365 Migration from Google Workspace Project - Professional Services
