PartnerRe expressed the need to migrate its 5.000 accounts from a Lotus Notes by IBM to Microsoft Exchange 2010 with the Quest tools.
Being located in many countries, I had to build a sustainable infrastructure, responding to expectation and proper European and American legislation.
Prepare the migration plan and run it, without side effects for the users during their working time, was my second challenge.


My last prerogative was to edit PowerShell scripts to manage all steps out-of-scopes by Quest, for reports and for administration.
