Find out how to migrate from Notes to Exchange

Dave Thompson, who is the VP for Exchange in corp. is coming over to speak at an event in London, Docklands next month.  The event is: Understanding the Microsoft Platrform for Notes Organisations.  I quite often talk to customers about their challenges when they migrate from Notes to Exchange, and some customers are concerned that they don’t have sufficient knowledge to hand before they start.  So this event brings together Microsoft Expertise, with customers and partners who have already migrated so you can ask questions about the tools used, and about any burning issues you may have.  Here’s the link to register. 

Here’s what the day will look like.  I pinched the copyof the invite below…

How Notes companies can get more value from Microsoft solutions
We are pleased to invite you to a very special event that looks in depth at the steps required to evaluate moving from Notes/Domino to the Microsoft platform.  Brought to you by Microsoft’s expert speakers, this session will give you an understanding of the collaboration market and Microsoft’s vision and strategy. Our experts will show how Microsoft Collaboration solutions work together with a “Day in the Life” demo using Microsoft collaboration technologies.

With in-depth drill-downs into the solutions that make up an effective collaboration infrastructure and a detailed overview of the transition project and Messaging/Directory Fundamentals, this full-day session will provide answers to many of the burning questions you face like:

• What does a typical migration process look like? 
• What are the best practices and learnings from previous experiences? 
• How can I complete an application assessment? 
• What’s best for my applications: migration or coexistence?
You will also get the opportunity to hear from UK partners that have delivered Collaboration solutions and customers that have made the switch.
