Instant Technologies Simplifies Migrations for IBM Sametime and Microsoft Lync
Leading provider of social applications for the enterprise provides enterprise migration services for both IBM Sametime and Microsoft Lync.
October 9, 2012, Portsmouth, NH - Instant Technologies, specialists in developing innovative, enterprise-class archiving, eDiscovery, click-to-chat and migration solutions for IBM Sametime and Microsoft OCS/Lync, today announced an enterprise instant messaging (IM) migration platform.
In a recent customer survey, Instant found that corporate users rely on email as their number one mission critical form of communication with enterprise instant messaging a close number two. This data reinforces the need to maintain enterprise IM contact lists as customers transition between enterprise IM and unified communications (UC) platforms. Instant Technologies views enterprise instant messaging systems as a dominant enterprise social platform, and the contact list as a valuable window into a person’s social network.
Instant Buddy List Migrator simplifies and accelerates the process of platform migration for both IBM Sametime and Microsoft Lync. Instant’s solution automates the migration of personal contact lists and eliminates the need to rebuild groups and group memberships post-migration. In the event of a staged migration, Buddy List Migrator will also provide an application on both platforms to automatically update contact lists as people migrate between UC platforms.
“Enterprise IM platforms are now as prevalent as corporate email. Instant views these enterprise IM and UC platforms as a valuable component of any enterprise’s social application framework. In many cases, people have spent years developing their internal network of contacts and support systems, as companies transition IM platforms we see value in maintaining those contacts and relationships,” commented Peyton McManus, President of Instant Technologies. “Most companies rely on their internal social network so much that down time or loss of contacts is not an option.”
