Fourteen years of experience migrating more than 30 million mailboxes and users, combined with an innovative and expanding solution suite, a team of world-class experts, and proven methodologies have made Quest Software the trusted migration advisor and industry leader. Quest’s solutions and methodologies migrate to Microsoft Office 365 and hosted Microsoft Exchange from a variety of platforms, including Lotus Notes, Google, Novell GroupWise and on-premises Exchange. Quest solutions eliminate the risk and reduce the cost so IT departments can accomplish migrations without stress, on time, on budget, and with minimal business disruption.

Building on its legacy of migration leadership, Quest Software further simplifies migration to Microsoft Office 365 and hosted Exchange with the new Quest® OnDemand Migration for Email. This user-friendly, cloud-based migration solution, which is built on Microsoft’s Azure platform, is ideally suited for both organizations and Managed Service Providers looking to migrate their customers to a hosted platform.
As one of the first providers to offer Office 365 migration solutions when the comprehensive cloud service was released last year, OnDemand Migration for Email specializes in delivering a stress-free migration, as well as capabilities that empower organizations to take full advantage of the functionality, convenience and cost savings presented by the cloud.
OnDemand Migration for Email is available for $10 (USD) per migrated mailbox from the Quest OnDemand Portal.
Quest Ensures Simple and Secure Office 365 Migrations
Quest’s broad migration solution suite encompasses a full range of migration and coexistence solutions to eliminate/minimize the risk of email migration projects. For example, Quest solutions ensure business continuity so that users who have migrated can continue to communicate and collaborate (i.e., schedule meetings or see calendar availability) with users who have not yet been migrated.
To that end, Quest has enhanced Coexistence Manager for GroupWise, which now supports GroupWise 7. This new version provides true coexistence between GroupWise 7 and Exchange 2010 or Office 365. The solution also offers GroupWise 2012 coexistence support for Novell customers who have moved to the latest version of GroupWise.
GroupWise Migrator for Exchange, which will be available later this quarter, contains several enhancements that reduce interruptions to business productivity, including the ability to migrate recurring meetings that were created in GroupWise, and resource creation within Active Directory (i.e., meeting rooms and equipment) during a migration to Exchange.
Quest’s time-tested and field-proven best practices for migrations help organizations avoid common mistakes (see Five Common Migration Mistakes—and How to Avoid Them ) and better prepare, migrate, coexist, and manage the process of moving to new versions of technologies including Active Directory, Exchange, Office 365, SharePoint, and Windows.
Coca-Cola Bottling Company United Successfully Migrates 1,200 Users to Microsoft Office 365
Coca-Cola Bottling Company United, the largest Independent bottler in the United States, recently migrated 1,200 knowledge workers from Lotus Notes to Office 365 as part of a strategy to modernize its environment, increase collaboration with other bottlers, and reduce IT costs.
The company teamed with Quest Premier partner InfraScience and Microsoft Corp. to streamline the process of migrating 1,200 large mailboxes with 250,000 contacts and more than 2 TBs of data to Microsoft Office 365, while taking advantage of Quest’s flexible, automated migration solutions to minimize user disruption, improve access to mobile devices, and add cloud-based disaster recovery capabilities.
“The combination of the InfraScience team and Quest’s migration solutions enabled us to exceed expectations in terms of ensuring a fast, cost-effective migration that was easy and painless for our users,” said Mike Neighbors, vice president of information technology for Coca-Cola Bottling Company United. “We not only accomplished our top goals, but also achieved an annual cost savings of at least 15 percent, including conversion costs, when compared to the cost of running our previous Lotus Notes environment.”
“Successful migrations require strong customer partnerships, robust tools and staged implementations,” said Mark Pierce, co-founder and managing officer for InfraScience. “We give a lot of credit to Coca-Cola Bottling Company United, Quest and Microsoft for working closely with us so we could fully leverage our combined knowledge, expertise and best practices to optimize the entire process.”
