Migrating to Exchange 2013 from Legacy Exchange

With the recent release of Microsoft™ Exchange Server 2013, many organizations are evaluating the benefits and challenges of moving to the new platform. This is especially true for organizations still running a legacy version of Exchange, such as Exchange 2000 or 2003. Microsoft is discontinuing support for Exchange 2003 in April 2014, and the native tools in Exchange 2013 do not allow a direct migration with full coexistence from the legacy platforms.Whether you are transitioning from a legacy platform, consolidating multiple Exchange environments or upgrading to a more recent flavor of Exchange, an Exchange migration project can be complex and risky.

Read this white paper to learn key considerations that affect the decision to migrate, understand the migration challenges you might face if you are on a legacy version of Exchange, discover the steps you should take to ensure a successful migration and be prepared to get the most out of your new investment once your migration is over.
