About Email Migrations

Rob Walton – Owner and Founder – rob.walton@emailmigrations.com

Rob Walton is an experienced email migration consultant and has worked across numerous messaging projects. After gaining a BSc University Honours Degree in Computer Science, Rob began working as a technical lead starting right back in the Microsoft Mail era. He then strengthened his knowledge and experience through years of both hands-on and remote consultancy projects, evolving his skills alongside modern products such as Microsoft Exchange, IBM Domino, Novell Groupwise and Microsoft Office 365.

Some of the recent email migration projects that Rob has provided his technical expertise to have involved these technologies: Binary Tree Software, Quest Software, Exchange 2007, Exchange 2010, Exchange 2013, Lotus Domino and GroupWise.

As a certified Quest Lotus Notes Migrator and GroupWise Migrator, Rob also strengthens his knowledge with many of the Binary Tree products such as E2E.

Remote consultation expertise

For email migrations that require remote technical assistance, we provide expertise in the role of Trusted Technical Advisor. Utilising video conferencing technology, you can ensure our knowledge and expertise are only a call away. For a remote project, we can work alongside the project manager and assist in helping make key technical decisions.

By providing services in this remote fashion, we have been able to guide and assist on projects around the globe, including North America, Australia and New Zealand. As with all migrations projects, Rob is available to travel if required and can provide quality assistance from anywhere in the world.

Email migration consulting

Rob has been personally responsible for moving over 500,000 mailboxes during his many email migration projects. With each project that he undertakes, his increased knowledge and experience allows more in-depth and informed decisions on the next migration. This doesn’t apply just to the migration itself, but the entire life-cycle of the project from start to finish. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • RFP response
  • Architecture
  • Design
  • Implementation
  • Operational support
  • Documentation
  • Handover

The greatest benefit of such a broad knowledge base is the ability to communicate on all levels, from frontline users through to technical IT teams and all the way up to executives. This provides everyone with a fluid understanding of the process and what it will involve for the entire organisation.
