Business need: The client, a large financial institution, needed to migrate 4.5TB of content as quickly and efficiently as possible out of IBM Content Manager (CM8) via IBM CommonStore to Lotus Notes NSF files.


With precisely the tool for the job, and as an IBM email archive migration expert, Integro was brought in to manage the migration using its proven tool, Integro Email Migration Assistant (IEMA). IEMA is the only product on the market that helps companies migrate large quantities of email, quickly and securely, from CommonStore or IBM Content Collector, providing the benefits of speed, ease-of-use, and reporting.


  • Speed – Integro was able to retrieve the client’s email 10 times faster than native utilities.
  • Reporting – The client was able to see exactly how much email would be retrieved and the amount of space required before the project began.
  • Chain of custody of emails were provided to the client via full audit reports on mail messages and user mailboxes.
  • The client’s email was not changed in any way during the process, thus preserving email integrity.
