Microsoft Exchange servers are one of the leading business class email servers that provide enterprise level security and reliability to the business email systems. Email being a business critical resource, it is very important to keep it accessible from anywhere at anytime without any failure.
Our Exchange Experts have successfully completed many consulting assignments all the way from Exchange 5.5 to the latest Exchange 2010, Exchange 2012 to Exchange 2013 and including the Microsoft Exchange Online. We also support hybrid solutions of both Exchange online and on premise Exchange 2010.
We use a simple methodology of “Assess, Design, Plan and Implement” for both new deployments and migrations from Legacy Exchange Servers. All our Projects are managed by experienced Project Managers using PMI methodologies.
The High-level explanations of each of our core methodologies are:
In this phase, we perform an assessment of your existing Messaging Architecture and validate if the existing hardware can be reused for this upgrade/migration process. We also review your requirements in terms of technical and business’s strategic goals and objectives.
Depending on your project requirement, some of the deliverables might be
- Current State Documents
- Deployment/Upgrade Readiness Assessment document
- Preliminary Deployment recommendations
In this critical phase, we generate many important documents that will be used as guidelines for planning and implementing the project. We will design a comprehensive Messaging Architecture that meets and exceeds your expectations.
The Design Document will include the entire messaging architecture, enterprise archival and retention strategy, backup and restore plans, Unified Communications and all other related technologies mandated by your organization’s functional requirements.
After the customer approves the Design documents, we move to the planning phase. During this phase, the Design and Architecture documents are reviewed with the customer to develop the following planning documents:
- Detailed Project Management Plan with scheduled activities and Resource requirement.
- Stakeholders communication plan with proposed downtime schedule, if any…
- Milestone development
- Implementation Plan
In this phase all our Plans are put into action. We acquire the project team and the actual implementation/Migration activities are performed as per the Project Management Plan. Most of these tasks are performed after office hours or during weekends to minimize the impacts on your business activities.
The Implementation tasks can be performed by your internal resources with our supervision and oversight or can be completely handled by our experienced technical team.
We strive to be virtuous. Our business model is customer oriented and we do everything to make sure our customers are happy and satisfied.
