David Scult, general manager for Microsoft Online Services, said that customers need proven tools to migrate customers from GroupWise to Microsoft Exchange Online. Quest GroupWise Migrator for Exchange will help transition GroupWise customers and their data to Microsoft Exchange Online.
According to Quest, the GroupWise Migrator for Exchange has the ability to decrease downtime and data loss by providing a ZeroIMPACT migration from GroupWise to Exchange, Exchange Online and hosted Exchange. Customers can easily migrate e-mail, calendars, tasks, personal address books, frequent contacts and archives with fewer resources than they thought possible.
