According to a recent Gartner report, Microsoft continues to gain a-mail market share, and will hold approximately 70 percent of the worldwide commercial e-mail market by late 2009. Many businesses are considering moving to Microsoft platforms such as Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 from their current platforms, including Lotus Notes. Quest Software, has a set of tools designed to migrate mailboxes and applications off of Notes, and to help manage and rebuild applications in the new environment.

"Quest is a valued partner for businesses looking to migrate to Microsoft solutions because it is committed to creating quality migration products, and Microsoft has twice recognized these efforts by naming Quest Microsoft ISV Partner of the Year."

This suite of web parts assists in reconstructing Notes applications with a consistent look and feel as well as rich functionality, data integrity and security. 

Quest Software and Avanade, an IT consultancy, are working together to migrate organizations' mailboxes to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and applications to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.
