Email in the Cloud is forcing organizations to think more dynamically about email migrations.
Enterprises need to rethink their email migration strategies to respond to the growing reality of email deployments in the cloud. Business email is in transition. Traditionally, email vendors such as Microsoft and IBM have rolled out major releases every couple of years. Each new release giving customers a new reason to migrate. However, there is a larger trend on the horizon – corporate email moving into the cloud.
Google Apps, Microsoft BPOS and IBM Lotus Live are making hosted business email a viable option for companies of all sizes and in all industries. As business email transitions to the cloud, email migration needs are changing as well. IT managers are now expected to respond to the new reality that email migrations are no longer a scheduled one-time project for the entire organization. Email migrations are becoming more dynamic.
What do organizations need to do to respond to this new dynamic migration environment? Enterprises will need to be nimble, agile and flexible as the migration process is no longer a one-time project. Going forward, email migrations can be tailored by department or group of users to accommodate specific needs.
Regardless of whether the email migration is for an entire organization or for a department, IT managers can turn the complex migration to simpler departmentalized tasks by implementing policies to limit the amount of data that flows through the email servers.
