This one is called Transcend Migrator and, while I have not heard much about this, the company behind it reckons it is leading edge. I will just have to take their word for it.
However, I believe the application prefers to use a different way of migrating email data called Exchange Web Services (EWS). Traditionally it has been via MAPI or IMAP.
Speaking with marketwatch.com, Joshua Krefetz, Transend’s Vice President of Business Development, said: “Transend Migrator, while still able to migrate data via MAPI and IMAP, is one of the few email migration products on the market to integrate with Microsoft’s Exchange Web Services.”
Mr. Krefetz added: “This MAPI-replacement is the direction Microsoft has already committed to going forward and makes it easy for almost any platform or device that can connect to the Internet to interact with Exchange mailboxes and their contents, including e-mail messages, calendars, contacts, and tasks.”
Now I have to point out one thing here. This particular software is primarily aimed at moving data from Lotus Notes to Microsoft’s proprietary cloud system Office 365. However, since many of these migration systems now offer cloud migrations I suspect Transcend can be used to migrate over to Google.
The question is: Is Transcend easy to use? I believe it is. It can be downloaded and installed easily as a Windows utility.
