For a Fortune 500 Global Holding Company

The Requirements:   
    * Migrate users from multiple Microsoft Exchange Domains to Lotus Note/Domino
    * Consolidate multiple Notes Domains into a single Notes Domain
    * Consolidate worldwide Domino server into large platform regional servers

This 5 billion dollar global provider of technical products and systems, industrial products and services, flow technology, and service solutions had a unique situation after a merger. 45 business unit locations of the newly acquired company consisted of 13 Lotus Notes domains, 28 MS Exchange domains and 4 Groupwise shops.

The units were located in several US cities, but also in UK, Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Australia, Brazil, and the Netherlands with several units in China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. The environment to be migrated held approximately 6,000 users to be added to an existing population of 6,000 Notes users.

To connect and consolidate 28 MS Exchange domains, 13 Notes domains, and 4 Groupwise shops strategically into a single Lotus Notes mail system.

Use proven methodologies and the keen leadership and project management skills of Technotics.

Andy Pedisich, President of Technotics, was pulled in to assess the requirements and to design the project that would pull these MS Exchange domains and Lotus Notes domains into an already existing corporate Notes domain.

The firm also wanted to consolidate Domino servers onto a bigger, more resilient platform, moving from geographically distributed WIntel platform based servers to centrally located clustered Domino servers running in the IBM iSeries AS400 environment.
