Migrate from Lotus Notes to Exchange
CMT for Exchange

CMT for Exchange is the most comprehensive software available for migrating from IBM Notes and Domino to Microsoft Exchange 2013 and Exchange Online in Microsoft Office 365

CMT for Exchange supports migrations from Notes and Domino to on-premises and online versions of Microsoft Outlook and Exchange, including to Exchange Server 2013/2010 and to Exchange Online in Microsoft Office 365.

CMT for Exchange offers unmatched data fidelity, migration management, migration throughput, and transitional calendar workflow that enables users to schedule, update, reschedule, or cancel single occurrence and recurring meetings regardless of the migration status of the principle or invitees. CMT for Exchange migrates Domino mailboxes and archives to your choice of Exchange mailboxes, local archives and on-premises or cloud-based Exchange archive mailboxes.

Migration Data Fidelity
CMT for Exchange migrates Lotus Notes email messages, calendar entries, contacts, to-do’s, journal entries, rich text, mail archives and more to Microsoft Outlook and Exchange while retaining the original text formatting, images, attachments, and links. CMT for Exchange also ensures that even custom recurring meetings are properly migrated so that any subsequent changes, reschedules, or cancellations can be entered once for all instances of the meeting. The data fidelity of CMT for Exchange significantly reduces the risk that your users will experience business process disruptions, or worse – data loss or corruption.

Migration Management
CMT for Exchange’s unique Enterprise Migration Manager (EMM) allows you to manage the entire migration project. CMT for Exchange’s EMM enables you to schedule users for migration, automatically or manually provision the users in Exchange, monitor the status of their migration, and to configure pre- and post-processing actions like decrypting encrypted email items, collecting rules and access control lists, and more. EMM also enables you to control which data, and how much data, is migrated by enabling you to filter by data type and to set quotas on the amount of data migrated per mailbox. Acting as a centralized migration management system, CMT for Exchange’s EMM reduces the risk of forgotten tasks and provides an ‘audit trail’ of tasks both completed and pending.

Migration Throughput
CMT for Exchange can scale to meet the migration requirements of any organization. Under optimal conditions, a single CMT for Exchange migration workstation can migrate more than 8 Gb of data per hour for on-premises migrations. For smaller organizations, one CMT for Exchange workstation may be appropriate. For larger migrations, multiple CMT for Exchange workstations, whether on virtual machines or individual workstations, will coordinate the work effortlessly. Adding additional workstations is a simple and painless process. These additional workstations use a technology called Automated Workload Distribution (AWD) to ensure that each workstation is kept busy continuously. Other products suffer from non-productive 'idle-time' because each worker waits for the last worker to complete its job before they are all handed a new batch of mail files to migrate.

The Advanced Migration Toolset (AMT)

The Binary Tree Advanced Migration Toolset (AMT) database is a collection of tools used to automate some of the operations needed when performing a Lotus Domino and Notes to Microsoft Exchange and Outlook migration. The AMT toolset should be used in conjunction with the Binary Tree CMT for Exchange application; however, it may be used at your own discretion as a standalone application. 

The AMT is a separate download from the standard CMT for Exchange download. Customers can receive a free copy of the AMT by simply submitting a support request. Binary Tree also offers a quick start support service for the advanced features of CMT for Exchange which includes accelerating the implementation of the Advanced Migration Toolset (AMT).

The AMT application provides for some of the most commonly performed tasks when migrating users from Lotus Notes to Exchange. These features include:

User Account Maintenance
There are several maintenance steps to be completed before successfully migrating a user(s). AMT automates many of these processes to ensure a smooth migration. The AMT tool can also automate the process of creating proper access for the newly created Exchange mail store.

Group Migration
AMT automates the process of creating the legacy Lotus Notes Groups in Active Directory.
