Magic had been using IBM Lotus Notes for over 15 years, but found that maintaining this system was becoming increasingly costly and time-consuming.
The company sought a lower-maintenance alternative that would replace its multi-location infrastructure with a cloud-based solution. This would improve the level of service on the server side, ensuring greater availability and easier access from any location.
Magic decided to migrate to Google G Suite, as it was also impressed by the ease of use, user-friendly client user interface, and automatic software updates offered by this solution. Alexandra Etush, IT Manager at Magic, said: “Google G Suite is perfectly suited to our company’s strategic goals of technological flexibility and business agility, which inspire our product portfolio and our roadmap for a future of enterprise mobility and cloud computing. We have been able to use Google G Suite for our company in a way that matches our dynamic vision for the future of enterprise IT.”
What we did
DoiT International , a Google G Suite Premier partner, helped Magic get started with a two-month limited pilot, and then helped in rolling out Google G Suite incrementally to the entire organization. DoiT International also provided ongoing support throughout the migration process and initial training sessions.
Being a public company, traded on NASDAQ, Magic is required to comply with various industry standards for transparency and traceability. Using Google G Suite enables the company to keep records of every email sent or received for 10 years, with no additional hardware or software requirements, and no resource-intensive archiving processes.
