To have a successful email migration, you need to determine the technology and the budget.

Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and information governance consultant, discusses how to select an email migration solution and presents questions to ask potential vendors in a new article on the Messaging Architects website.

The informative article asserts that to have a successful email migration, organizations need a well thought out, detailed migration plan. The author then presents seven questions IT managers should ask potential migration vendors to assess the risk of each solution.

“To have a successful email migration, you need to determine the technology and the budget,” stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects. “You also need a well thought out, detailed plan that demonstrates you’ve considered all the challenges you might face when your users encounter a new email platform.”

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “7 Questions to Ask for a Successful Email Migration.”

Questions to Determine Risk

1.    “If you will outsource the migration, is the work being done in the US or offshore? This could be relevant given the sensitivity of your data and the unknown content.”

2.    “What is the impact of the solution on my users? For example, do my users need to log out? Are there periods where they cannot use the system?”

3.    “What about personal archives? Does the proposed solution address the processing of personal archive data? If these volumes of emails are lost, historical and relevant data may not be recovered post migration, and this could indeed put the organization at risk.”
