Get Ready for Your GroupWise Migration to Exchange 2016 and Office 365

Exchange 2016 is here, and we’ll see more cumulative updates throughout 2016 that will deliver some of the features missing from the RTM software delivered in October 2015. With each of the previous major releases — Exchange 2007, 2010 and 2013 — we’ve seen a big wave of migration activity, and much of the activity is from organizations on non-Microsoft platforms such as Novell GroupWise. Most organizations look at each release as the green light to evaluate their existing environment and seriously consider their upgrade or migration plans for Exchange 2016 or even Office 365

We expect the same type of GroupWise migration activity with 2016 on the way. Therefore, we've launched new versions of Migrator for GroupWise and Coexistence Manager for GroupWise that include Exchange Server 2016 support. 

You can check out what's new in each release below.
