Quest Software, Inc. today announced support of its migration and coexistence solutions that lower the cost, complexity and risk of migrating mailboxes and applications to Microsoft Office 365, which recently was released to public beta. The solutions are designed to minimize impact on IT operations and end-user productivity with simple and secure Office 365 migration from Lotus Notes, GroupWise, Google Gmail, and on-premises Exchange.
Quest now offers one of the most comprehensive suites of pre-migration assessment, migration and coexistence solutions for simplifying the entire transition process. Organizations can perform pre-migration assessments of on-premises Exchange, SharePoint and Lotus Notes environments to effectively plan their target environment and be sure they only move the mailboxes and applications that are needed, reducing migration time and effort.
Organizations can further reduce time and effort with Quest migration solutions that automate and accelerate the transition of mailboxes and applications, minimizing risk and potential impact to end users. Equally important, Quest maintains coexistence between platforms with tools that synchronize directories, provide free/busy lookups and ensure proper calendar scheduling between Exchange Online and Lotus Notes email systems.
According to Bill Evans, vice president and general manager of SharePoint and Notes Transition for Quest Software, companies today are adopting different migration strategies, which underscore the growing need to migrate and manage online, on-premises and hybrid environments. “Quest is well positioned to meet evolving migration requirements, as we have a full roster of solutions for migrating mailboxes and applications from any legacy platform to any new platform, including Microsoft Office 365,” he said. “No matter where customers are going or where they’re coming from, Quest can alleviate migration challenges, costs and complications.”
Quest’s track record of successful Microsoft platform migrations also continues to expand worldwide, backed by an ever-increasing solution set, award-winning technical support and a global ecosystem of experienced partners. For instance, Quest and PointBridge, an IT consulting firm and recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Online Services Partner of the Year award, are working together to migrate organizations’ mailboxes and applications to Microsoft Office 365. “We are thrilled to be working with one of the leading migration vendors in the market,” said Todd Golden, director of alliances and co-founder of PointBridge. “Through this partnership, PointBridge and Quest will provide customers with proven migration tools and the technical expertise to move seamlessly to Office 365.”
