We’ve spent decades working with all types of organizations, with all different sizes of migration, with all sorts of environmental challenges. You would think we’ve seen it all, but we still strongly believe that every project is unique with potential challenges at every corner. To level the playing field, rather than starting a project with EVComplete, Onboarding 365 Complete, or any technology for that matter, we always suggest doing a Proof of Concept!

Key Takeaways

  • A Proof of Concept (POC) is a process that allows organizations to test the effectiveness of a migration solution before committing to it.
  • Cloudficient offers POCs at no cost and with no commitment, in order to help organizations make informed decisions about their migration projects.
  • POCs typically last for about a week, during which Cloudficient sets up the solution on its ReMAD platform and deploys modules to test the migration and onboarding processes.
  • The specifics of a POC can vary depending on the organization's needs and requirements, but they usually involve testing the migration of a small number of users or data.
  • Cloudficient's POCs are designed to demonstrate the power of the company's workflow templates, which automate many of the steps involved in migration.
  • POCs are an important step in the migration process, as they help organizations to understand the capabilities of the solution and ensure that it will work effectively with their data and environment.

We Take Your Side

While some vendors may ask why you want to do a Proof of Concept, we jump to take your side. While some vendors are happy to demonstrate their solution, on their hardware, with ‘sample’ data.  We ask the question:

Why wouldn’t you do a Proof of Concept before spending tens or hundreds of thousands dollars on a project?

Do I Have To Pay?

No. Why should you have to pay to prove that the solution will work for you? With Cloudficient, there is no commitment or paperwork

What's Involved?

Usually, the Proof of Concept will last for about a week. During that time we’ll set things up on our ReMAD platform, deploy modules, review your environment and begin testing the migration and onboarding processes.

While we have a default plan template for what is involved in a Proof of Concept, as we’ve said before every project and customer is unique so we’re flexible with our approach. It can be as simple as going through the end-to-end process with as few as 10 users in order to prove that the solution works. It can be more complex and involve an element of performance testing (requiring many more users).

The migration of an archive or the move of a mailbox is just one part of the overall process that will eventually be designed and optimized, but even in a Proof of Concept we can show you the power of our workflow templates. For example, a simple template to use during a Proof of Concept might look like this:

As you can see, we take care of automating so many of the different steps that could of course be done manually: but why would you!?

What's The Catch?


Many organizations are delighted by the prospect of how Cloudficient technology handles migration as a business process – but shocked we are so willingly ready to prove it. It’s not just showcasing our solution but it’s doing it with your data in your environment. Customers sometimes think that there is a ‘catch’, but really there isn’t! Always do a POC – No cost. No commitment. No problem!!
