Dell Migrates Coca-Cola to 365

migration to cloud

Dell Software has announced that Coca-Cola Bottling Company United selected Dell’s Notes migration solutions to migrate 1,100 user mailboxes and 2 terabytes of data from IBM Notes to Microsoft Office 365. This migration was completed over a single weekend with no apparent disruption to end user productivity.

Founded in 1902, CCBCU is one of 200 Coca-Cola bottlers around the world, including 70 bottlers in North America. The company was running IBM Notes and Domino, along with Notes applications, but needed to move to a common platform to better align and collaborate with the more than 250,000 contacts in the Coca-Cola family worldwide.

Michael Tweddle, executive director, product management, Dell Software commented “Coca-Cola Bottling Company United chose Microsoft Office 365 to enable enterprise- level communication technology throughout their facility. Teaming with InfraScience and Microsoft enabled us to help them make the move quickly, without a hitch. Dell has migrated well over 50 million mailboxes over the span of the last decade, and our solutions accelerate the time to project completion while minimising the costs and risks of a migration and user disruption. ”

Michael Neighbors, Director of IT, Coca-Cola Bottling Company United added “The weekend cutover went exactly as planned, and our employees were able to come to work on Monday with Office 365 up and running. The migration was seamless and simple and has achieved our primary objective of improving our collaboration systems and staying closely connected and integrated with the other bottlers. We are a growing company and moving to Office 365 with the help of Dell and InfraScience has been advantageous for us in many ways. Not only have we been able to easily onboard new employees using Office 365, but we have reduced the administrative effort required to manage the collaboration systems day to day.”
