Email Migration Services

Georgia Perimeter College


The Challenge

Georgia Perimeter College, GPC, is one of the fasting growing higher educational institutions in the State of Georgia as well as the southeast. With over 26,000 email accounts spread over four campuses needing to be migrated to the latest version of Microsoft Exchange, information technology resources at the college were fully committed with other projects and did not have the time or expertise to tackle the project. GPC was using two disparate email systems, Lotus Notes and PMDF, both having limitations as to scalability, high availability and integration to Microsoft Office. In addition, the college wanted to have a more secure and maintainable front-end which Microsoft’s Active Directory application provided.

The Solution

B2B Technologies, one of the most respected Microsoft Education Partners, was contracted to do the engagement. One of the requirements that Georgia Perimeter College insisted on having was a firm which not only was a Microsoft Partner, but had planning and deployment expertise working with MIIS 2003/ILM 2007 for synchronization between open LDAP and Active Directory. This type of experience is rarely found in even some of the largest consulting organizations. Consultants at B2B were able to get the migration accomplished in approximately 90 days including the planning, setting up security, migration and testing. Today, GPC is able to provide students, faculty, administrators and other stakeholders a robust, secure and maintainable commercial email system.
