Binary Tree has entered into a strategic alliance with Microsoft to deploy its application for the Microsoft-led migrations for IBM/Lotus Notes customers to Microsoft Exchange Online, part of its Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS).
Microsoft will use Binary Tree’s technology and methodology to transition messaging and calendaring data for legacy IBM/Lotus Notes customers.
Microsoft Online Services general manager David Scult said Microsoft have chosen Binary Tree because their tools provide a full-featured set of capabilities to transition customer data, which includes coexistence between the platforms, to ensure business continuity as they migrate their people in phases.
As part of the alliance, the two companies have committed to greater interoperability and service delivery to address key customer requirements including application and calendaring coexistence, plus content migration through the combination of Microsoft’s hosted infrastructure with Binary Tree’s migration/coexistence offerings and consultancy.
Binary Tree Co-CEO Henry Bestritsky said the companies remain committed to delivering offerings and services that simplify the onramp to Microsoft’s technology platform, be it on-premises or hosted in the cloud.
