Quest launches Notes/MES utilisation tool

Quest Software has announced the release of Coexistence Manager for Notes, the latest addition to its family of migration platforms.

Quest says the new offering will enable businesses to, ‘Utilise both IBM Lotus Notes and Microsoft Exchange Server (MES) simultaneously, while either migrating from Notes to Exchange or during a prolonged coexistence scenario’.

End user disruption should be kept to a minimum with the new service, according to Quest.

Users who regularly have to switch between Lotus Notes and MES suffer from inconsistent calendar data, lost attachments, extraneous attachments, and loss of document link functionality. Coexistence Manager aims to ensure that calendar data, including invitations with custom and recurring meetings, is processed correctly.

It can also automatically redirect e-mail-based document hyperlinks to the current location of the application, whether it is on Notes or SharePoint, preserving workflow. Quest says this will mean productivity is not impacted due to downtime caused when a user switches between two platforms.

David Waugh, vice president of unified communications and collaboration, Quest Software, said: “With the release of Coexistence Manager for Notes, we have solved possibly one of the biggest pains among users of IBM Lotus Notes and Microsoft Exchange: synchronised calendaring and email support. The solution broadens our migration product portfolio and offers users a worry-free transition experience.”

Pricing begins at $10 per mailbox, and it can also be bundled with Notes Migrator for Exchange as part of the Notes to Exchange Migration Suite for $15 per mailbox.
