As part of their company rebrand, the RootLogik (formerly BMK Solutions) team approached HiView for help with a domain migration and an upgrade from legacy G Suite Basic to Google Workspace Business Starter. HiView executed the migration and upgrade, sending periodic communications to inform all users of the changes.
The RootLogik team needed an updated domain to reflect their new brand identity. For their domain migration (also referred to as a “Workspace-to-Workspace” migration or a “domain swap”), 84 users and 8 Google Groups were to be migrated from the bmkllc.com Workspace environment to rootlogik.com. The HiView consultant would preserve all data: Gmail, Drive, Calendar, and Contacts. Additionally, the consultant needed to ensure that users would receive emails sent to their old email address in their new inbox.
First, the RootLogik team sent a finalized list of users and Google Groups to the HiView consultant. The consultant used this to review the user mapping, ensuring that all data would be migrated to the correct destination account.
Next, the destination accounts were created in the RootLogik domain. The consultant then configured the migration tool (Cloud Migrator) and began the migration of Gmail and Drive content. Forwarding rules were configured so that emails sent to the source domain would be received by users in their new inboxes.
Finally, the second migration phase was executed, migrating all recent Gmail and Drive content as well as all Calendar and Contacts data. The data migration itself required three weeks, which is standard for a migration of this size.
