A Comparison of Cross-Forest Exchange Migration Software

Many organizations today are looking for ways to migrate their legacy messaging and collaboration environments to Exchange 2010 or to the cloud-based Office 365. Whether an organization needs to migrate its legacy Exchange environments due to a merger or acquisition, consolidation, or divestiture, or simply to modernize its infrastructure, the process can occupy IT administrators for months and can create headaches for end users. To facilitate the migration, administrators have two options: they could manually script the entire process using PowerShell and complex scheduling processes while tracking the entire project with Excel spreadsheets, or they can use automated tools available on the marketplace.

Among the automated tools are legacy solutions that remain largely unchanged since the days of Exchange 5.5 migrations to Exchange 2000, and then there is E2E Complete, a new migration product from Binary Tree. This paper discusses the differences in migrating to a new Exchange environment with legacy tools as compared to migrating with the new E2E Complete.
