Messaging Architects Shares 3 Key Elements of a Successful Email Migration

HOBOKEN, N.J., June 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and email migration services provider, discusses the essential elements of a successful email migration in a new article on the Messaging Architects website.

The informative article advises organizations planning an email migration to effectively communicate expectations prior to the move. In addition, it states that proper preparation and addressing issues with a clear plan of action help to ensure a successful email migration.

"Begin to prepare your users and administration weeks ahead of an email migration," stated Dena Kamel, Director of Consulting at Messaging Architects. "Provide adequate training on new features and changes. And, communicate through multiple channels to reach all users."

Below are a few excerpts from the article, "3 Key Elements of a Successful Email Migration."

"In today's environment, we depend on email to make our work more efficient and broaden our reach. Unfortunately, technology sometimes fails to work as expected. Consequently, effective communication, proper preparation and effective issue resolution become critical to the success of your organization's email migration from GroupWise or other legacy systems."

1. Effectively Communicate Expectations

"That Monday morning Go Live disaster could be so much different. Even when glitches occur (and they will occasionally), if users know what to expect, they will quickly adjust and adapt. For example, one organization hung banners announcing the email migration in advance. Organizers reinforced key components of the new system with pins that included the updated URL and a Monday morning kiosk for immediate answers to questions. Awards engaged end users, and experts were easily recognizable in bright t-shirts."

2. Prepare, Prepare, Prepare for Email Migration

"The key difference between a successful email migration project and an unsuccessful one is proper preparation. A large hospital recently migrated their email to a new system. They began with a small pilot project. The first pilot failed, as did the second. The organization had only trained a handful of end users and attempted the pilots with a bare bones team."
