CASE STUDY

Siemens Healthineers simplifies complex global migration of 75,000

“It was a very complex migration over 9 months and the interaction between our global Healthineers Project Team and Binary Tree was always constructive. In the event of problems, contact with the MaaS team was always very quick and problems were quickly resolved. Binary Tree Team makes our live relatively easy.”

— Alexander Ruf, Cloud Architect, Siemens Healthineers GmbH

The Challenge

The migration of 75,000 mailboxes from the complex environment of a giant multinational conglomerate following the separation of an independent and listed company needed to be completed on a predictable timeline without disruption to the business. As a worldwide project with 75 locations, a full service solution that was flexible, proven and cost-effective was required to support the limited internal resources. Additional challenges for the project included migrating mail, users, calendars and archives from the existing Hybrid (cross-tenant) environment to the new company’s Microsoft Exchange Online system.

The Solution

Binary Tree’s Migration-as-a-Service (MaaS) utilizing our Exchange Pro software was selected from a competitive RFP bidding process against leading migration solution providers.

This winning combination provided both the proven migration framework coupled with seasoned, professional consulting support that worked very closely with the small team at Siemens Healthineers to react extremely rapidly to the issues and challenges arising in the complex migration.

The Exchange Pro software provided the automation to schedule the managed migration of 71,000 mailboxes over a 9-month period with a further 4,000 in the project clean-up immediately after. The ease of use, stability and unique functionality offered by the solution overcame the very limited access available from the original source and provided both the easy automated communication with end-users, and allowed a quick and straightforward delegation of permissions.

The Results

The close partnership between Siemens Healthineers and Binary Tree ensured all the challenges in this large and complex project were rapidly resolved while the scalability of the solution made it easy to automate and batch the very large migration to meet deadlines. Alexander Ruf, Cloud Architect at Siemens Healthineers commented “It was a very complex migration over 9 months and the interaction between our global Healthineers Project Team and Binary Tree was always constructive. In the event of problems, contact with the MaaS team was always very quick and problems were quickly resolved. Adding “Binary Tree Team makes our live relatively easy."
