Exchange 2013 Migration & Consulting

Exchange Server Infrastructure


For many enterprises and other large organizations, keeping Exchange Server on-premises is an important part of their overall IT strategy.  While some IT companies may try to push you to the Cloud or their own hosted Exchange, Agile IT will work with you to successfully upgrade your existing on-site Exchange Server infrastructure to Exchange Server 2013.

With Microsoft Gold competencies in (among others) Messaging, Communications, Collaboration and Content, Identity and Access, and Datacenter, Agile IT is proven to have all the skills and expertise to upgrade, migrate and support Exchange Server 2013.


Exchange Server 2013 features

Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 brings a rich set of technologies, features, and services to the Exchange Server product line.  Its goal is to support people and organizations as their work habits evolve from a communication focus to a collaboration focus.

At the same time, Exchange Server 2013 helps lower the total cost of ownership whether you deploy Exchange 2013 on-premises or provision your mailboxes in the Cloud.

Upgrading to Exchange Server 2013

Upgrading to Exchange 2013 from Exchange 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010, or migrating from Lotus Notes, Novell Groupwise, and Pop3/IMAP messaging systems creates challenges in preserving data integrity and system stability.

Additionally, there is an inherent challenge in avoiding the disruption of workflow processes–those both actual and perceived–of your users.

Partnering with Agile IT allows you to make any such disruptions minimal. You’ll benefit from hands-on help and attention from a team with a singular focus on architecting, deploying, and mentoring your IT staff in advanced Microsoft Exchange solutions, using and sharing Microsoft best practices throughout each step.

Exchange Unified Messaging Voicemail ConsultingVoicemail That Breaks the Sound Barrier

Unified Messaging in Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 helps reduce the time and money you spend managing voicemail, while making your users more productive. Voicemail is consolidated into the universal inbox along with email and other message types, enabling users to manage all their business communications in one place.

Speech-to-text previews help people act on important voicemail messages even when they are in a meeting or otherwise unable to take calls. Also, your users can easily create customized greetings and call transfer options, reducing the likelihood of missing an important call.

Exchange Server 2013 integrates voicemail with your overall business messaging infrastructure and provides scriptable management commands, helping IT staff optimize their workflows. In addition, Agile IT will help you understand the granular retention policies and information rights management protection help maintain security and compliance.
