Our Lotus Notes to Office 365 experts guided the Solent team through the process of migrating 22,000 total mailboxes, using our rigorous methodology to plan, prepare and execute.
Mailbox migration of 2,000 Staff and 20,000 students
This involved migrating the 2,000 Staff and Faculty of Southampton Solent University from Lotus Notes to Office 365, whilst also deploying Skype for Business and OneDrive.
This was Cloud Business’ second major project for the university having previously been engaged to migrate its 20,000 students from Oracle Mail to Office 365.

The 22,000 mailboxes were migrated in 14 planned batches with almost no disruption to users email access. Training and floor walking was scheduled alongside these batches.
