Laplink Helps IT Transition to Azure Active Directory with Free Migration Tool

PCmover Profile Migrator solves the hassle of user profile migration

April 22, 2020

Laplink® Software, Inc., the global leader in PC migration and creator of the only software of its kind recommended by Microsoft®, Intel® and all major PC manufacturers, today announced its PCmover Profile Migrator software is available at no charge through June 30, 2020. As more organizations transition their IT infrastructure from on premise to the cloud, this solution reduces the time and hassle of setting up new Azure Active Directory (AAD) profiles for users.

Cloud hosting and services continue to gain popularity among enterprises and small businesses. In fact, Statista recently reported that 68% of U.S. businesses will adopt managed cloud infrastructure services this year alone. Compared to on-premise options, cloud-based services offer improved scalability, security, business continuity, as well as reduce costs associated with software maintenance and infrastructure management.

“There are significant benefits to implementing AAD, including a reduction of hardware costs, improved service availability, and reduction of IT labor”

Naturally, IT teams find value in moving from on-premise Windows® Active Directory (AD) to the cloud-based Azure® Active Directory. Laplink’s PCmover Profile Migrator streamlines this process. It automatically transfers applications, files and settings between the old on-premise AD user profile and the new AAD user profile on the same PC. Depending on the deployment scenario, the solution is saving IT teams days, even weeks, of time transferring profiles.

“There are significant benefits to implementing AAD, including a reduction of hardware costs, improved service availability, and reduction of IT labor,” said Thomas Koll, Laplink’s CEO. “Those benefits are driving the transition to the cloud and Laplink is dedicated to making that transition as simple as possible. Instead of relying on a slower manual process for profile migration that can easily result in lost data, our automated solution saves time and money – and it transfers everything seamlessly. That’s why Microsoft recommends it specifically for efficiently transitioning to AAD.”
