B2B Technologies, one of the most respected Microsoft Education Partners, was contracted to do the engagement. One of the requirements that Georgia Perimeter College insisted on having was a firm which not only was a Microsoft Partner, but had planning and deployment expertise working with MIIS 2003/ILM 2007 for synchronization between open LDAP and Active Directory. This type of experience is rarely found in even some of the largest consulting organizations. Consultants at B2B were able to get the migration accomplished in approximately 90 days including the planning, setting up security, migration and testing. Today, GPC is able to provide students, faculty, administrators and other stakeholders a robust, secure and maintainable commercial email system.
