Public Folder Remediation: A Process-oriented Approach to Public Folder End-of-life

In early 2006, Microsoft confirmed the rumors that they were planning to de-emphasize public folders and that sent a shock wave through the Exchange community.  IT shops with large amounts of data in public folders, along with ISVs specializing in migrations or Microsoft SharePoint have begun looking for alternatives to public folders.  

In this document, Ben Koehler and Valera Meylis, strategic systems consultants  at Quest Software, provide a process-based methodology for IT organizations interested in heeding the writing on the wall and beginning a project to eliminate (or drastically reduce) their use of Exchange public folders.  Review this detailed, step-by-step methodology for Microsoft public folder remediation.
