Today we're making it a lot easier for customers of Microsoft Exchange to go Google with Apps. Google Apps Migration for Microsoft® Exchange is a new server-side tool that migrates your company's email, calendar and contact data from Microsoft Exchange to Google Apps. With the tool, migrations are:
• Easy: set it up in just 4 steps
• Efficient: select the combination of mail, calendar and contact data that you want to move, with the option of doing so in phases
• Fast: migrate hundreds of users at the same time
• Painless: employees can continue to use Microsoft Exchange during the migration without interruption or any involvement on their part
As Paul Lovett, Project Manager for the Google Apps project at New Zealand Post, described, "We are a very calendar-bound organization, so Google Apps Migration for Microsoft® Exchange was the missing link in our migration strategy, allowing us to perform a server-side migration of our calendar and contact data from Microsoft Exchange 2003. We moved our corporate executive team first which required spot-on accuracy and a quality product, and Google Apps Migration for Microsoft® Exchange met that high bar.”
The tool has been a boon to our Google Apps partners as well. Mayooran Rajan, CTO of Revevol Consulting, noted, "We work with companies with 100 to 20,000 employees. This tool will help us move our clients to Google Apps faster and more efficiently, helping us save them time and money."
Google Apps Migration for Microsoft® Exchange works with Microsoft Exchange 2003 and 2007, and both on-premise and hosted Exchange. It's available free to Google Apps Premier and Education Edition customers here. If you're considering the switch from Microsoft Exchange, you can find resources to help make your decision here.
Also, for those who have already gone Google by making the switch to Google Apps, you can share your experiences and spread the word at www.google.com/apps/spreadtheword.
