CloudReady Insight solution calculates the ROI of migrating to Office 365
Exoprise, a provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) based monitoring and enablement solutions for cloud applications, recently announced a new program to help existing Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 users evaluate the potential ROI of migrating to the Office 365 Exchange Online service. Sponsored by Microsoft’s U.S. Marketing & Operations group, the enablement effort, being offered free of charge, provides all Microsoft field sales, partners and end-customer IT professionals in the U.S. with a cost-assessment and readiness solution from Exoprise to help users evaluate the ROI benefits and user readiness for migrating to Microsoft’s cloud-based Office applications.
The assessment solution typically costs $1,000 to access, but is free of charge for customers currently running Exchange Server 2003, which reaches end of support on April 8th. The program runs through May 31, 2014.
Exoprise CloudReady Insight is an automated solution that enables users to define optimal migration plans based on their organization’s specific requirements and usage patterns. It runs in the customer’s environment, analyzing existing Outlook and Exchange Server usage and document collaboration needs. This provides IT teams with detailed user readiness and migration planning guidance, as well as a comparison of the total cost of ownership of their current on premise Microsoft Exchange deployment vs. the Office 365 Exchange Online service.
"For many businesses, the end of support for Windows XP and Exchange Server 2003 is an opportunity to update their email and communications deployments to leverage the cloud,” said Patrick Carey, vice president of product management and marketing for Exoprise. “The Exoprise CloudReady Insight solution is very timely for those customers evaluating their next steps. It helps IT teams make this transition with confidence by giving them real, objective data for their environment, showing them cost benefits and user readiness for Office 365.
