Businesses migrate from Sun Solaris-based systems to MS Windows in order to extract more competitive value from hardware and applications. The resulting Windows-based environments simplify administration, improve the productivity of users and network support personnel, minimize data duplication, improve data integrity, and provide for smoother recovery from disaster. A Microsoft Windows environment lets companies create solutions rapidly and demands less effort to be expended on writing, integrating, and managing application software.

Progent can help you to plan and deploy an efficient move from a Solaris-powered network to a Windows environment capable of supporting Microsoft's familiar Office suite, commercial applications, and developer tools. Progent's skilled Sun Solaris, Windows MCSE, and Cisco engineers and application experts can show you how to save your information and minimize business disruption by creating and executing an effective transition plan that preserves your past expenses for Sun Solaris applications and network equipment. Progent can also assist to educate your workers and IT group so your business stays productive.

Solaris-to-Windows migration consulting services available from Progent include:

  • Evaluation of Current Infrastructure
    Progent will help you evaluate the potential benefits and risks of transitioning an operating system, software application, computer, storage subsystem, or information base. The exercise provides a thorough evaluation of your information system, defines a basic IT inventory, lowers engineering risks, and inevitably leads to a lower cost of migration by saving time and avoiding costly mistakes.

  • Migration Strategy and Validation
    Progent will develop a detailed migration deployment plan which may include validation installations. Progent practices a phased methodology with specified waypoints to comply with economic, scheduling, and technical objectives while minimizing business disruption. This process is based on the best practices outlined in the Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF).

  • Microsoft Exchange Migration Expertise
    Progent can create and carry out a comprehensive strategy for migrating from Solaris-powered email to Microsoft Exchange Server and can assist you to migrate Lotus Notes or Novell Groupwise software applications to a MS SQL application or a SharePoint Portal Server solution. Progent's expert MS Exchange Server consultants can evaluate the risks and benefits of transitioning to Exchange and create a comprehensive inventory of your current messaging infrastructure. Progent can also manage a pilot implementation to help validate an MS Exchange transition strategy. Progent will also evaluate your existing messaging protection and propose polices and tools to protect against attacks.

  • Data and Application Software Transition
    Progent can develop and implement an information and application transition strategy that incorporates descriptions of information and applications to be ported, description of technologies and processes to be used for the move, risk assessment and risk minimization plans, detailed project management services, critical path estimates of the migration and anticipated network downtime, validation techniques, and critical back-out plans. Progent's consultants can ensure the effectiveness of your data and application porting project by offering accredited Microsoft SQL Server 2016 developers or MS SQL Server 2014 experts and data migration professionals who are veterans of large engagements such as Dynamics GP migration.

  • Server and Media Transition and Streamlining
    Processor and storage migration and economization from Sun Solaris to MS Windows can streamline IT management, improve information consistency and accelerate system performance. By removing unneeded hardware and software and by deploying processor and storage assets efficiently, you can create an IT architecture that is extensible, safe, easy to backup and recover, and economical to administer and support. Progent's processor and media migration and economization support features a comprehensive plan with an assessment of your existing processor and mass storage infrastructure as well as for hardware, software, services, training, and support for proof-of-concept piloting. Progent can assist you to develop and implement a consolidated, fault-tolerant IT architecture based on in-depth load evaluation and capacity modeling and can specify archiving and restore solutions.
