Migration: Lotus Notes to Exchange 2013

Guys I need a good guide to migrate from Lotus Notes to Exchange 2013. You would think since Microsoft wants your business there would be a good tool out there but no dice other than Quest's software which is typically ridiculously expensive!

There is Binary Tree (as you got in your other question). Then there is the Dell suite, but I think Dell took over Quest so it is basically the same tool. They claim to do more than only mail, so do some tests on other applications to see what and how much is converted.

Can we do anything to keep you from migrating away? If all you use Notes for is mail, I can understand the move, but I'm convinced that migrating will cost you a serious bundle when you have some or many actively used Notes applications. And why do you want to migrate?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Unfortunately the decision has already been made and they use Notes for EVERYTHING. So trying to get a game-plan and equal solutions to line up for replacing the entire product.

This is really absurd. Better leave now, before the ship stars sinking (which is inevitable IMHO). Who is the financial genius behind this?

Would they consider a best effort solution, i.e. keep the Domino server for all application and convert the applications to XPages? That seems doable, is quite modern and doesn't necessarily cost a fortune.

To return to your question, Quest seems to do a pretty good job, but there are several others, like Systools. They all say they can do everything, but it's more like the usual 80-20 rule: the last 20% will cost you 80% of the money and time.

Save the company, tell 'em to move only mail to Gmail, and save some more by adopting XPages. The alternative: save your behind, pdq... Even guts won't bring you glory here.

Ok that doesn't install much confidence. Is there anything besides Quest?
