Don’t fight it…switch!


December 22, 2005 9:39 am





Not everyone will be celebrating this New Year’s Eve. On Dec. 31, Microsoft discontinues support for Exchange 5.5. This change won’t affect just a few customers analysts estimate that up to one-third of the Exchange installed base is still on 5.5. Upgrading to the next version will involve a great deal of time and money, plus a whole new infrastructure.We’re encouraging these Microsoft customers to make a New Year’s resolution to change over to GroupWise, which offers long-term security and reliability, including 69 percent less downtime than Exchange. MeritCare Health System, the largest medical group practice in North Dakota, has already made the switch. By migrating 6,500 users to GroupWise from Exchange, MeritCare reduced back-end administration time by 50 percent. Its IT staff no longer needs to distribute regular security patches, combat virus attacks or restore e-mail files.
