Through engagement with the central NHS Digital team and NHS organisations nationally, BDS were asked if we could develop an NHSmail migration solution to provide a cost-effective service for NHS Trusts to migrate on to the recently procured Accenture NHSmail platform.
Working with NHS Digital and Accenture, we have developed an affordable NHSmail Migration Toolkit that systematically reconciles and synchronises mailboxes. This includes identity mapping utilising Directory Manager provisioning services and a uniquely automated data migration solution, using our in house developed integration software. Through this mechanism, BDS can offer facilities to Trusts not available through generic tools, such as permissions migration, group migration and mailbox state migration.
BDS continues to service a significant pipeline of important migrations on and off of the NHSmail platform, and Microsoftâ€™s recent withdrawal of basic authentication (i.e. username and password) from Office 365, used independently by organisations that manage their own messaging, has led to the design and release of our updated and enhanced Toolkit adopting the new modern Open Authorisation (OAuth) authentication mechanisms.
