"We were extremely satisfied with Binary Tree's level of service, resources, and professional team. We had a very tight timeframe, which the team exceeded by two weeks. Most important, our end users were happy."
- Project Manager, Jefferson University
As part of an initiative to merge the Hospitals with the University, the messaging environment was being upgraded, standardized, and ultimately migrated to Microsoft Office 365. To complicate matters, some of the 10,500 users were in more than one source environment—one for calendaring and another for email. Binary Tree teamed with partner Turnberry Solutions to manage the project, set up the coexistence between Lotus Notes and Microsoft Office 365, and perform the conversion of all mailboxes.
Jefferson Hospitals opted for a Binary Tree Remote Hosted Migration-as-a-Service, whereby Binary Tree performed the migration remotely via the cloud. As part of the solution, Binary Tree defined the process and schedule, controlled the activities during the activation process, and managed all of the data conversion for the Lotus Notes mail, hosting at Binary Tree’s secure data center during the transformation. Binary Tree’s partner Turnberry Solutions rounded out the engagement by providing the critical project management role onsite along side the customer.
Despite these complexities, the entire project went extremely smoothly. After a brief pilot test, velocity migrations began and were completed within a few months—averaging about 1200 mailboxes per event—ahead of time and without disruption to user productivity. As a result careful diagnosis, coordination, and scheduling, Thomas Jefferson University’s migration had a very healthy outcome.
