User Query: We were trying to migrate the company’s user data from Office 365 to G Suite using the “Data Migration Service (DMS)” provided by google when login as a Google Admin. Initially, the migration process carried out successfully but, for multiple users migration, it took large hours.

Therefore, I need a solution that could help me move Office 365 user data to G Suite quickly. Please suggest if any!!”
