IBM's planned company-wide email migration has gone off the rails, leaving many employees unable to use email or schedule calendar events. And this has been going on for several days.
Current and former IBMers have confirmed to The Register that the migration, 18 months in the making, has been a disaster.
Reminds me of my workplace. The old email system was ugly, clunky, and slow. After the company moved over to a shiny, new email system, my boss came up to me and asked a question about something he emailed to us the day before. I had a confused look. "I didn't get the email."
Apparently, some people did get it while others didn't. It was a fun few weeks.
Among those employees unable to access their email, there's concern that disappeared messages may not be restored. We've even heard that IBM employees have been approached by recruiters posing questions like, "Why are you still at IBM? They can't even get email straight."
At least, they're super woke!
