The Challenge
With email messaging continuing to dominate business communications, an increasingly large number of organizations are considering a transition from on-premise email deployments to hosted email services. Leveraging SherWeb’s hosted email services, companies can bene fit from predictable costs, expert-level support, stringent security safeguards, automated data backups, and reduced costs. Using SherWeb’s hosted email services, IT teams can spend less time maintaining email systems and more time on company-specifi c projects. Hosted service providers such as SherWeb help companies get the most out of their email system by off ering decades of experience and direct access to email messaging experts. To streamline migrations from a growing customer base, SherWeb senior engineer, Maxime Boulanger, was looking for a reliable, scalable, and flexible migration solution – a solution that would allow effi cient migration from a large variety of systems.

The MigrationWiz Solution
MigrationWiz’s patent-pending technology was designed to meet these requirements. When other companies claim to o ffer e ffcient migration solutions, they also require their customers to call for a quote or deploy additional on-premise software and hardware. By comparison, MigrationWiz’s cloud-based solution allows any user to con figure and submit a migration within minutes with no prior experience. “MigrationWiz is a user-friendly solution with a very practical interface. The layout and general design makes MigrationWiz an easy solution to migrate di erent types of customers,” said M. Boulanger. To facilitate the migration of over 12,000 mailboxes from di fferent platforms, SherWeb also took advantage of MigrationWiz’s SOAP API and PowerShell scripts to fully automate the migration process.

M. Boulanger contacted MigrationWiz’s support team for some assistance troubleshooting complex connectivity issues. “They really helped us fi nd the root cause of the problem and the right solution. Their knowledge base explains the exact steps to troubleshoot any migration failure. Their support team points you in the right direction if you ever need their help,” said M. Boulanger. MigrationWiz o ffers free 24/7 email support with every license. During and after migration, M. Boulanger was also able to take advantage of detailed migration statistics. “We can clearly monitor and understand migration results while performing a migration.” The availability of near-real time migration statistics was instrumental in helping SherWeb analyze data transfer performance and provide adequate migration planning to their customers.
