“When you’re migrating such a big base, you’re never going to get 100 percent when it comes to migration,” said Johnson. “We advise our customers to make sure that they are looking out for the emails and other notifications, because the 88th Communications Group and the 88th Communications Squadron will continue to provide information to our users to make the migration a greater success.”
Johnson said overall the migration was a success with multiple email boxes consisting of more than 30,000 users, group and distribution boxes, with an estimated total of 50,000 items, were updated, with a 99.4 percent success rate.
Users can look forward to the rest of the cloud-hosted enterprise services coming in 2019. The email migration has now moved on to other bases across the Air Force.
Johnson said the project management team will continue to update users on future CHES migration initiatives.
