Considered one of the messiest email migrations ever, the recent Computerworld story regarding missing White House emails provides a fascinating view into a Lotus Notes to Microsoft Exchange migration gone wrong. It’s estimated that more than 2 million emails and associated email attachments went missing during the White House email migration effort.
We have a number of large customers who first contacted us for a enterprise file transfer solution as part of their Notes to Exchange migration programs – too bad we didn’t get that call from the White House it might have helped.
Typically organizations initially approach us as part of their Notes to Exchange migration program because they realize that Exchange is going to limit their users to 10MB attachments and they need a solution for sending large files. However another important benefit of deploying Accellion, particularly prior to migration, is that Accellion can considerably reduce the email store that has to be migrated. Files can easily take up more than 75% of email storage and by offloading file transfer from email, the time and resources required for email migration can be greatly reduced.
If you are planning a Notes to Exchange migration anytime soon we’d love to talk with you about how we can help.
