The Challenge

We know migrating to a new platform is risky. With nearly 300 billion mails being sent every day, e-mail is the backbone of your company. Downtime, lost mails, missing calendars, incomplete contact data are not an option. In short, it’s like changing tires on a car while the vehicle is moving at 50 mph. 

When initiating a migration, businesses encounter formidable obstacles that threaten the very essence of a smooth transition. The challenge of losing vital data from mails, including properties such as sender information, receiver details, timestamps, to calendar entries, tasks, and contacts leading to a chaotic and time-consuming sorting process, stands as a stark reality. Meanwhile, the safeguarding of the naturally sensitive business emails becomes paramount, with the absence of robust security measures risking data breaches and eroding customer trust.

Compounding on these operational challenges is the absence of migration reports and monitoring. Without these reports, businesses don't know for sure if their mailboxes are moved accurately. This lack of real-time progress tracking makes it hard to ensure the success of the migration and plan for what comes next.

But here's where BCC MigrationEngine steps in – it's the solution you need.

This involves the Initialization phase, where we set up and configure accounts in the destination systems and ensure internal enablement. Following this, we kick off the mail migration process, commencing with a thorough test and pilot migration to test the migration environment and procedures. Once successfully completed, the serial migration is executed, with each step accompanied and carefully documented by our team. Finally, cutover!

Post-mail migration, we guide you through configuring your archive for a comprehensive and tailored post-migration experience. Check our proven post-migration solution, ActiveArchive, to find out more about how to access and convert old archives in a browser-compatible format.

5) Evaluation

Upon completion of the migration, we conduct a comprehensive assessment, compiling a detailed report that encapsulates the project's performance data and highlights any challenges encountered and how they were solved. Our commitment to transparency extends to presenting this report directly to you, providing a clear and detailed understanding of the migration journey. During the evaluation stage you will have the opportunity to provide direct feedback, which we strongly encourage. This way we ensure a collaborative approach and continuous improvement for future migrations.
