Exchange Migration and Standardization
FirstAttribute AG supports medium-sized and large businesses
with the planning, realization and with the operation of Exchange
solutiona. A special competence of the FirstAttribute lies in the
planning and execution of an Exchange migration. We have already
migrated numerous postboxes of Exchange, Lotus Notes or GroupWise
into the current version of Exchange.
In connection with our core areas Active Directory and
IT-migration, we can help you quickly and reliably to adapt your
Exchange server to the future requirements.
The crucial point in implementing a successful Exchange
migration is considering the requirements of the users. A user
wants to keep working the way he or she is used to before, during
and after any changes. He or she wants to profit from his or her
Outlook rules , wants to access the current schedule of colleagues,
does not want authorizations he or she had setup for colleagues to
get lost as well as numerous other settings and functionality.
The actual Exchange migration is, from the users' point of view,
to be carried out "softly". They want to know the time of the
change, within a set time range, and be migrated without having to
adapt manual configurations to their systems.
Tip: Steps for the execution of a successful Exchange
- Analysis of the existing environment
- Optimization of the source environment
- Preparation of a concept for the target environment
- Preparation of a concept for migration, including choice of
- Setup of the target environment
- Functional testing
- Integration of the migration tool
- Execution of a pilot migration
- Execution rollout
- Change e-mail routing
- Clean-up of the new environment
- Retirement of the source environment
During the migration-phase, the postboxes are split into
rollout-groups. The contents of the rollout groups are
synchronized, so that the contents are the same in both postboxes
(source and target) at the time the mail client of a user is being
migrated. It is recommended to choose the rollout-groups according
to related units; so that the mutual access to the postboxes can be
guaranteed. For example, a secretary can administer her boss'
appointments during the complete migration process.
