NEW ORLEANS, June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Binary Tree, the market-leading provider of cross-platform messaging migration and coexistence solutions, announced a new cloud-based service today at booth 341 at Microsoft TechEd 2010.  The new service, called CMT AutoPilot, enables Lotus Notes customers to run on-demand migration and coexistence proof-of-concept (POC) projects to on-premises and cloud-based versions of Microsoft Exchange, including to Microsoft Online's Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS).  

"CMT AutoPilot makes it fast and easy for a Lotus Notes customer to run a migration and coexistence pilot project to Exchange without having to go through the time and expense of setting up any on-premises systems," stated Henry Bestritsky, Co-CEO of Binary Tree.  "Now Notes customers have a very low-cost way to test drive a migration to Exchange and let their users fully experience the Microsoft platform and the seamless interoperability between the two disparate environments."

While traditional migration and coexistence POC projects typically require significant investments in hardware, software, subject matter experts and time, CMT AutoPilot provides Lotus customers with an easy, low-cost, and nearly instantaneous alternative to pilot a migration to the Microsoft platform.  CMT AutoPilot enables Lotus Notes customers to access a dedicated and fully functional Lotus Notes/Domino and Microsoft Exchange migration and coexistence environment running in the cloud for as long as a customer wants it to remain active.  

Once the customer is logged into the CMT AutoPilot cloud environment, they can experience any desired migration and coexistence functionality they desire.  Complete end user and administrator experiences in Outlook and Lotus Notes can also be tested to best prepare for an actual migration in the future.  Customers can migrate real user email and calendar data or pre-populated test data from Notes to Exchange.  CMT AutoPilot also gives customers the ability to test email and calendar workflow between Notes/Domino and Exchange including free/busy calendar lookups, directory synchronization, and the automated remediation of Lotus Notes email-enabled applications for Exchange/Outlook users.  

CMT AutoPilot currently supports migration and coexistence between Lotus Notes/Domino and Microsoft Exchange.  Support for migration and coexistence between Lotus Notes Applications and Microsoft SharePoint and SQL Server will be available later this year.
