Banca Intesa Standardizes Messaging Infrastructure, Enhances Services

Great new case study of a large migration to the Microsoft platform . Banca Intesa employs more than 57.000 people and operates 3.700 branches. Prior to the migration, Banca Intesa had some 28.000 users on webmail, 10.000 users on Lotus Notes and 500 users on IMAP Cyrus/Linux …

Banca Intesa launched in Italy following the merger of three major credit companies. It standardised its messaging infrastructure by deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. The decision was based on the Microsoft solution’s ease of administration, integration with existing systems, low total cost of ownership, and enterprise-class support. Using the new e-mail infrastructure has greatly enhanced messaging services for mobile working, and the integration with Microsoft Windows Server 2003 reduces IT management and supports centralised provisioning of user accounts. Banca Intesa migrated 33,000 mailboxes in less than two months, rationalising the management of the service, increasing its reliability, enabling new user functionalities, and opening a path for new collaboration services.
