Business issue

Melbourne City Mission (MCM) was seeking to migrate from its existing mail platform hosted on Novell GroupWise, and had chosen the Microsoft Cloud hosted platform, Office 365 as their future collaboration solution.

MCM’s key requirements were for a swift and flexible migration with seamless data migration from GroupWise mailboxes to Office 365.  In addition, they aimed to minimize the cost of migration without compromising on quality and effectiveness, and to achieve improvements in availability of the mail platform to ensure business efficiency and effectiveness.

MCM engaged Ensyst for the overall migration project, recognising Ensyst’ exceptional experience with Cloud migration, particularly from legacy GroupWise environments, for clients including Pymble Ladies’ College, RSM Bird Cameron, Fire & Rescue NSW and Service First NSW.

Solution

The project included establishment of the supporting identity and authentication infrastructure and the actual migration of MCM GroupWise mailboxes to the Microsoft Cloud.

A key element of this complex project involved Ensyst assisting with the business change impact of the migration. Ensyst utilized a migration methodology in line with MCMs change management, training and adoption requirements.
