Because the Messaging Architects’ migration experts took care of the email platform switch and the data migration, my team was free to complete the rest of our infrastructure refresh in time to start the new school year in the new IT environment.
Montreal, Canada (Vocus) February 8, 2010
Messaging Architects, global experts in email risk management, announced today a complimentary online seminar, at which Deer Park Independent School District will share with attendees the strategies they employed for a successful and painless email migration from Novell GroupWise to Microsoft Exchange. Furthermore, by selecting Messaging Architects’ M+Archive for the migration, the Texas-based School District was able to achieve cost savings of over 30% and at the end of the project it had also addressed email retention and eDiscovery mandates.
Serving over 12,000 students, in 2009, Deer Park undertook steps to simplify IT infrastructure management by standardizing on Windows and moving to an Exchange collaboration environment. After serious research, Deer Park ISD selected M+Archive, Messaging Architects’ email retention and eDiscovery solution, to complete the email migration and implement automated email archiving.
“Since M+Archive included the email migration tool as part of the archiving licenses, we were able to save about 30% of the migration project investment as we didn’t have to spend additional funds on a single-use migration tool,” said Jason Piazza, Director of Network Systems at Deer Park ISD. “Because the Messaging Architects’ migration experts took care of the email platform switch and the data migration, my team was free to complete the rest of our infrastructure refresh in time to start the new school year in the new IT environment.”
By implementing M+Archive first on the GroupWise system, Deer Park was able to dramatically reduce the amount of email data to be injected in the live Exchange system, while allowing the end users access to the their old GroupWise archives. After the platform switch, M+Archive continues to archive email from the new Exchange system ensuring the school district remains compliant with the State of Texas email retention guidelines.
To get a step-by-step understanding from IT Director Jason Piazza about how Deer Park ISD approached their email migration to Exchange, register for the complimentary online event on February 16 at 3pm EST.
