We’re proud to announce full support for migrating from Novell GroupWise 8 to Exchange – including BPOS, Office 365, on-premise Exchange and hosted Exchange. The benefits remain the same as when migrating from Google Apps, Exchange, IMAP, etc. You not only get a zero-installation solution but also advanced stats, email alerts, built-in retries, automated credential management, scripting capabilities, performance optimizations, and much more.
This blog is part 2 of a 3-part series introducing this new capability:
- Part 1: Introducing Migrations from GroupWise 8 to BPOS / Exchange
- Part 2: High-Fidelity Migrations from GroupWise to BPOS / Exchange
- Part 3: Advanced options for Migrating from GroupWise to BPOS / Exchange
So what does high-fidelity mean? Let’s take the example of a GroupWise contact with all fields populated, including rarely used ones such as a TTY/TTD number and also a contact photo. Below is a screenshot showing the GroupWise version and the Exchange version after migration. We can’t show you all properties using a single screenshot, but trust us they’re all there (and mapped correctly).
What about appointments? Let’s try a recurring (daily) GroupWise appointment with some one-off changes. For one instance in the recurring series, we customized the subject and appointment time. As you can see below, these characteristics were preserved when migrating to Exchange.
