"The Internet giant released a tool to help Microsoft Exchange customers move their e-mail, calendar and contact data to Google Apps, the company's latest assault on Microsoft in a brewing collaboration software war. The tool works with Exchange 2003 and 2007 for both on-premise and hosted versions. By offering a migration tool, Google appears to be courting more Exchange users in an effort to move them to the Google Apps cloud.

"Google is ratcheting up its efforts to woo Microsoft customers with what it says is a simple, four-step migration process to its cloud-based suite of applications.

"The search giant's Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange, launched Wednesday, is a server-side tool designed to migrate a company's e-mail, calendar and contact data from Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) popular e-mail server to Google Apps without making the process a time-intensive chore for administrators. In a presentation on Tuesday, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) showed just four screens an IT administrator must complete to perform a migration, and pointed to businesses that used the tool successfully to leave Exchange."
