BitTitan, the developer of MigrationWiz and global leader in managed services automation, today announced it is enhancing its longstanding relationship with Ingram Micro, the world’s largest distributor of technology and cloud services, by launching an exclusive global partner offer to accelerate cloud adoption for partner customers. With the new offer, qualified Ingram Micro partners can receive free User Migration Bundle licenses for three upcoming migration projects for a total of 50 free MigrationWiz licenses.

While students and faculty are at home, it’s a good time for system upgrades that will enhance collaboration, access, and security. Many colleges, universities, and school systems are planning winter break migrations to move or consolidate tenants and even adopt new collaboration platforms.

If you’re using Google Workspace, MigrationWiz is the tool you need for migrating a wide variety of workloads: Mailboxes, documents, archives, and even collaboration platforms. You can take advantage of low education pricing to move from one Google instance to another, or from Google Workspace to Microsoft Teams. MigrationWiz handles all these workloads:

  • Gmail and Vault, including inbox, folders/labels, email, muted emails, contacts, calendars, and calendar notifications.
  • Drive, including files, folders, permissions, document history, comments, and more.
  • Shared Drives, including documents, permissions, versions, and metadata.

Great education pricing is one thing, but when you’re planning a migration, you should never skimp on experience, capabilities, and security. That’s why BitTitan has been the choice of educational institutions for more than 13 years.

Experienced experts are here to help

BitTitan has migrated thousands of students, faculty, and staff at hundreds of educational institutions all around the globe. While MigrationWiz is known for being intuitive and easy to use, you never have to go it alone, especially if your project is more complex. Our world-class Customer Success team are dedicated migration experts who can help you plan your project.

In fact, now is the perfect time to call so we can connect you with team members who have extensive experience in educational environments – including implementing complex Google Workspace migrations.

Fast, easy, and flexible

Educational institutions choose MigrationWiz because it’s fully automated and 100% SaaS. In fact, if you were expecting to sprint around campus in order to complete your migration, you may have to get your exercise some other way. With MigrationWiz you simply initiate your migration from one centralized dashboard, then use DeploymentPro – which is included – to automate Outlook configuration.

Don’t be fooled, though. Easy doesn’t mean basic. MigrationWiz is highly customizable with advanced options that give you full control over your migration. You’re always in charge of timing, testing, setup, and execution. You can also use project sharing to involve team members across departments for greater visibility and collaboration throughout the migration.

Top security with Azure datacenters

Security is top priority for every migration project, especially in educational settings. You’re responsible for protecting personal information from students and faculty, as well as proprietary documents and research. You must be able to ensure every bit of data is safe throughout the migration process. With MigrationWiz you get the extra security of Azure datacenters. And, your data is always encrypted and never stored.

With BitTitan by your side, you can get a lot done over winter break. So when faculty, staff, and students return, they might not even notice because they’ll be able to get started with the new semester without any disruptions.

Now’s the time to plan your migration

If you’re ready to implement a migration, there’s still time to put a plan in place. Contact us today to find out about education pricing for MigrationWiz and to learn how we can help make your migration a success.

BitTitan has achieved over 60 percent revenue growth in its business with Ingram Micro in the first half of 2019 and the two organizations continue working together to enable IT professionals to scale cloud services internationally. The User Migration Bundle license is valid for one year to migrate mailbox, document and personal-archive files, as well as automate Outlook profile configuration. Approved partners are those who have not yet purchased BitTitan products through Ingram Micro between January 1, 2018, and July 31, 2019. A minimum of five User Migration Bundle licenses must be purchased to receive up to 50 free licenses per an Ingram partner company across three separate purchases.

BitTitan has worked with Ingram Micro globally in the SMB space for four years. Together, BitTitan and Ingram Micro partners have moved over 200,000 mailboxes to the cloud for end users worldwide with MigrationWiz. BitTitan continues to grow throughout Ingram Micro’s partner base, providing mailbox, document, personal archive and now Microsoft Teams migration services. To date, BitTitan’s MigrationWiz has migrated 15 million mailboxes globally to the cloud.

“We are deeply committed to providing our partners with the tools to help them build a successful cloud practice, while offering the most powerful portfolio of solutions to help them solve their customer’s problems,” said Tarik Faouzi, vice president of cloud products at Ingram Micro. “By enhancing our relationship with BitTitan, who shares our commitment to the channel, we are able to extend to our partners BitTitan’s powerful cloud-migration services to organizations around the globe.”

Opportunities for growth within the cloud-services market continue to emerge. Gartner’s February 2019 Market Guide for Cloud Office Migration Tools estimates that “by 2023, less than 20% of businesses will be substantially provisioned with on-premises collaboration and communication capabilities.”

In addition, Microsoft’s end-of-support deadline for Exchange 2010 and Windows 7 in 2020 presents an immediate opportunity for partners to facilitate upgrades and grow their business or capture new business before the end of the year.

“BitTitan is committed to ensuring our partners are equipped with the right tools to adapt to evolving cloud demands and can scale to the unique needs of global customers,” said Geeman Yip, BitTitan founder and CEO. “We are proud to work with Ingram Micro as we continue to focus on delivering cutting-edge solutions to our partners to securely migrate data and optimize the cloud experience for customers and end users worldwide.”
