Pre-Migration Assessment & Planning
Pre-Migration Assessment and Planning is a critical and essential first step in performing an efficient Exchange Migration. Our clients benefit from our years of migration and consolidation experience in some the most intense environments on the planet and our experts excel at creating an Exchange migration plan tailored to your environment and agreed upon end-state goals. We are able to identify issues that other consulting organizations with less experience miss because of many successful migration engagements. Once the migration plan is created, we rigorously test the plan against our assumptions and refine the plan on an iterative basis.
Performing the actual Exchange migration and consolidation is where the rubber meets the road, and because Immersion painstakingly plans and tests each step of the migration process, we can deliver an Exchange migration that fully supports co-existence and continuity of messaging operations.
Product Agnostic Approach
Immersion Consulting is product agnostic. We do have experience with many third party migration products that are often required for an efficient Exchange migration. Our product experience includes the use of native Microsoft tools, Quest Migration Manager for Exchange, GroupWise Migrator for Exchange, Notes Migrator for Exchange, the full suite of Quest's Office 365 Migration Solutions (all Quest products now part of Dell) and other tool sets. We are more than happy to discuss and recommend the right tool for the job based on your environment.
Navigate Microsoft Exchange Compliance & Security Challenges
Organizations today rely on their Exchange Messaging Environment to run their business more than ever before. For organizations who use Microsoft Exchange or the cloud-based solution, Office 365 there is good news. The tools (native and third party) that address, enforce and manage compliance and security are mature and feature rich. One of the challenges every organization faces is creating a messaging compliance security policy that addresses regulatory requirements and that enforces and reports in accordance with that policy. Immersion's Exchange compliance and security experts help organizations create, implement, monitor and respond to compliance and reporting requests in an efficient and audit-able fashion.
Exchange Compliance & Security Policy Development
An organization must create a detailed messaging compliance policy that supports specific regulatory directives and agency-specific compliance initiatives. This policy must be thoughtfully crafted and reviewed on a periodic basis so that the organization's policies and external regulatory directives are addressed on a continuous basis. Immersion's Exchange messaging experts have not only the experience to help an organization create their messaging compliance policy, but are also able to recommend and implement processes and tools that will support the compliance plan.
Exchange Compliance & Security Policy Implementation
Microsoft Exchange Policy & Security plans must be enforced in order to be effective. Immersion's Exchange Compliance & Security Experts are experienced in helping organizations set up systems, processes and software that reports and alerts on Exchange compliance and security violations to ensure effective enforcement and audit-able reporting.
Exchange Situational Awareness Monitoring for Compliance & Security
Monitoring, reporting and alerting are critical components for Exchange compliance plan achievement. Immersion Consulting's Microsoft Exchange experts are experienced in implementing native and third party tools that address this very important aspect of policy achievement using Microsoft native tools, Quest Change Auditor for Exchange, Quest MessageStats (Quest products now part of Dell) and other third party products.
Expert Exchange Management & Administration Consulting
Microsoft Exchange is a mission-critical application and the expert management and administration of Exchange is a fundamental reality today for most businesses. Effective Exchange monitoring, reporting, alerting and backup and recovery procedures are no longer optional. Immersion's skilled Exchange experts have helped hundreds of organizations improve their Exchange management and administration posture - increasing an organization's efficiency, improving up-time and implementing bullet proof recovery and discovery procedures that ensure an organization can quickly recover an entire Exchange server (or just a single message) quickly and efficiently.
Exchange Backup, Recovery & Discovery
Exchange administrators are often tasked with discovery and/or recovery of Exchange message level data for a variety of reasons. For efficiency and compliance reasons, it is essential that an organization have a capable process that allows for the satisfaction of such requests in a timely manner. Immersion helps organizations implement systems and processes (both native and third party) that enable the efficient backup, discovery and recovery of message level data from a variety of messaging platforms.
