Going to Cloud Based Exchange and don’t know where to start? Want to Compare Gmail and Exchange online side by side?

Posted Posted in Anouncements, Cloud, Exchange, News

Very common for most orgs evaluating cloud based mail to not know where to start, or understand where the benefits are. This morning I was made aware of a free tool from Quest, called the Quest Migration Assessment Tool, or QMAT for short. It’s a  browser-based application that provides guidance for evaluating Microsoft Exchange Online […]
