CeBIT 2014: Reliable migration of entire email environments from Domino to Exchange using Easy Move by GBS
Karlsruhe / Hanover
The conversion of IT infrastructures is often connected with high levels of effort. After all, it requires an error-free implementation and ongoing operation. This is particularly true for email communication. IBM Notes/Domino and Microsoft Exchange are two globally established platforms on which both business-critical processes and email communication are based. For companies that seek to implement a platform change, a well thought-out offer is crucial. At this year’s CeBIT, email experts will present Easy Move, an offer that simplifies the conversion of email environments from IBM Notes/Domino to MS Exchange.
Easy Move is a multi-level approach. Initially, the existing IBM Notes/Domino infrastructure and messaging environment is explored in an analysis. The resulting recommendations for the actual platform conversion can then be used to ensure a seamless process. Afterwards, the email management solution iQ.Suite is converted into the new Microsoft world. At this point, companies benefit from the multi-platform capability of iQ.Suite, which can control email communication in IBM Notes/Domino, as well as Microsoft Exchange/SMTP. The email server infrastructure is converted to Exchange in cooperation with ACP, GBS’ experienced Microsoft partner. Calendars, tasks, and personal contacts can be transferred in addition to inboxes. In order to avoid under, over, or double licensing, during the last phase of Easy Move the highly evolved license management examines existing licensing models and enables them for use in the Microsoft platform.
"With Easy Move, we provide companies with the simple, fast, and reliable conversion of their email environments to Microsoft Exchange and comprehensively consider the involved business processes “, explains Andreas Richter, VP Marketing Europe at GBS. In addition, GBS experts also connect social business platforms to the new email environment, such as IBM Connections and MS SharePoint. “This is an important aspect, especially considering the now commonly found coexistence of different application worlds”, says Andreas Richter.
