Because it leveraged technology solutions from different vendors, atom42 experienced incompatibility issues which led to growing frustration. Even though atom42’s employees had their mailboxes hosted on Google Apps, they also used Microsoft’s Office suite to access their mailbox and edit documents. Some employees found that synchronization of email data from Google Apps to Microsoft Outlook could result in formatting problems. In addition, the different mechanisms proposed by each vendor to manage and organize documents caused confusion.
Following several incidents, the company contacted an IT consultant who recommended standardizing to a single technology vendor. After some in-depth research, atom42’s management decided that migrating to Microsoft’s Office 365 hosted solution would allow the company to standardize its business processes and eliminate incompatibility problems.
The MigrationWiz Solution
While researching different migration solutions, atom42’s Andrew Atalia found that using MigrationWiz’s cloud-based solution would allow the company to manage its entire migration project in-house. By eliminating the need for outside assistance, MigrationWiz’s self-service migration solution would allow atom42 to migrate faster and within a reasonable budget.
After configuring the migration using a simple web browser, Atalia was able to migrate all of atom42’s mailboxes from Google Apps to Microsoft Office 365 over a single weekend with no downtime for all its employees. Atalia was pleased to find that MigrationWiz was able to migrate not just emails but also contacts and appointments. Since its migration to Office 365, atom42 employees have enjoyed a more stable platform and a more streamlined approach to document management. “We’re a young company who focuses on doing the basic things really well. It was great to find MigrationWiz, whose easy-to-use product delivered exactly what it promised. We were happy to use it and support a company whose approach and ethos to development will clearly take them on to great things.” said Atalia.
