With one of the selected 2019 MISAC Annual Conference breakout session presenters finding it necessary to cancel his presentation, MISAC reached out to LiftOff's Ron Braatz to ascertain whether he would be willing to pinch hit with the session he had submitted for consideration.  Graciously, Ron agreed to do so.


Braatz' presentation, "How 5 California Cities Enhanced Security and Increased Collaboration By Moving to Office 365," is scheduled for Tuesday, October 1 from 10:50 AM to 11:45 AM.  

The description of this session reads as follows:

Through the use of case studies highlighting 5 diverse government organizations, Ron Braatz of Microsoft partner, LiftOff, will explain everything organizations should be thinking about before making the leap to Office 365 including the key steps involved and the decisions that must be made before migrating.  These considerations include:


  • What are all of the costs I should be budgeting for?
  • What Office 365 products support the functionality my organization demands?
  • How can I safely and securely move data to Office 365?
  • How long will the project take?
  • What security and compliance requirements should be considered?

Braatz will also share best practices that his clients are implementing to enhance security surrounding Office 365 and various Microsoft tools that are empowering teamwork at the office.


Braatz is the President and Founder of LiftOff.  The company focuses 100% on helping organizations deploy Microsoft 365 and Azure.  Over the last ten years, Braatz has personally worked over 5,000 clients on their transition to Office 365, and nearly 300 of those projects have been for State and Local Governments in 44 States.  In California, he has worked with nearly 30 governments including Santa Barbara, Petaluma, Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, San Clemente, Salinas, Coronado, Poway and many others.


Prior to starting LiftOff, Braatz worked for five years at Microsoft in the Business Solutions Division as a Solution Specialist.  He holds a Master's Degree in Technology Education from John Hopkins University and has taught courses at the high school and college graduate level.
