    Based on its 20 years development experience in the IBM Notes/Domino space, BCC has developed a server based migration solution, which allows a highly automated, fast and secure migration of mails, calendar entries and Domino applications to Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Office 365 environments.

    Using the server based Mail Migration Engine has benefits of speed and efficiency for every platform. Without the need to install client migration farms to cope with encrypted messages, you can move your migration plans forward, faster than with other methods.

    Taking a structured approach to the migration, our team will help you with industry insights and proven skills to make your migration a success.

    Server based execution of the migration engine enables highly automated and high-performance migration no extensive client migration workstations (migration farms) are required. No technical user IDs are required for access to sensitive mail data.
    Migration is flexibly configured through profiles and assigning them to groups or users: Direct migration of production mail files and different handling of the migration for mails to be archived in Office.
    "Sync Migration" allows a flexible and time controlled advanced migration of the mails to remove mass data transfer "bottle necks" and makes it possible to do a Migration data check before cutover by IT Support / End User and balancing of migration times to avoid peak traffic times.
    Migration is configured flexibly by profile and assignment to groups and users: direct migration of productive mails and various handling of the mails to be archived.

    Migration from the following Mail Notes elements:
    Mail messages:
    Templates as a draft, drafts, waste paper bin, orphaned documents / documents not included in any view or folder can be migrated to a default folder (freely definable).

    Calendar entries:
    Meetings, Appointments, Reminder, Anniversary, “split” bundled dates in Exchange as single dates, Encrypted calendar entries and set the "private" flag in Exchange, categories are accepted (including color marking).

    Migration of encrypted Notes Mails:
    The migration of mail encrypted with Notes PKI is a major challenge for mail migrations to Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Office 365, which can be handled in two steps by BCC.
