Move from Novell GroupWise
to Google Apps
A Specialized Approach
Novell GroupWise migrations require comprehensive planning and configuration. Detailed experience with the GroupWise post office and edirectory are required to succeed with any migration. We take the unique aspects of GroupWise into consideration, and migration topics that we discuss extensively with you during the Planning and Pilot phases, include:
- Mail Coexistence/Routing. When we migrate your company’s early adopters to Google Apps, other members of your organization are still going to be on GroupWise until we complete the migration, leaving both platforms operational for some period of time. Managing coexistence and ensuring that everyone still communicates without difficulty is paramount during this phase. We will assist in the configuration of GWIA settings to accomplish dual delivery with Google Apps.
- eDirectory Synchronization. Directory sync ensures that users on both platforms can access each other’s contact information to easily communicate with co-workers. We can configure the Google Directory Sync tool with your GroupWise edirectory to support user accounts, groups, and shared contacts.
- Data Migration.Our team will walk you through the options concerning the migration of mail, calendar and contact data. Depending on both your budget and how comprehensively your personnel uses mail, calendar and contacts, this phase can be one of the most time consuming, but arguably the most important. Furthermore, for your custom needs during the data migration, we can write custom codes/scripts or enlist the use of a 3rd party tool.
