Businesses move from Solaris to Windows so they can derive more competitive advantage from equipment and software. The resulting Windows-based systems streamline administration, improve the productivity of users and IT personnel, reduce data duplication, increase data consistency, and provide for smoother rebounds from disaster. A Microsoft Windows environment helps companies develop applications rapidly and demands less time to be spent on writing, deploying, and managing applications.

Progent can assist you to plan and deploy an efficient move from a Solaris-powered network to a Microsoft Windows network capable of supporting Microsoft's powerful Office software, commercial software applications, and software development tools. Progent's experienced Solaris, Windows, and Cisco CCIE consultants and application experts can help you to keep your information and reduce productivity disruption by designing and executing an effective transition plan that preserves your past investments in Sun Solaris software and network equipment. Progent can also assist to educate your users and network support group so your company stays productive.

Solaris-to-Windows migration support services offered by Progent include:

  • Analysis of Current Environment
    Progent will help you determine the potential benefits and risks of migrating an operating system, software application, computer, storage subsystem, or database. The exercise produces a thorough evaluation of your IT system, creates a baseline network inventory, reduces technical uncertainties, and ultimately leads to a lower cost of migration by conserving time and avoiding costly pitfalls.

  • Transition Strategy and Validation
    Progent will create a comprehensive migration implementation plan which may feature pilot tests. Progent uses a staged approach with defined milestones in order to comply with economic, scheduling, and engineering objectives while minimizing business discontinuity. This process is based on the best industry practices outlined in the Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF).

  • Microsoft Exchange Migration Services
    Progent can produce and execute a comprehensive strategy for transitioning from Sun Solaris-based email to MS Exchange Server and can help you to port Lotus Notes or GroupWise applications to a Microsoft SQL application or a SharePoint application. Progent's expert Exchange Server engineers can evaluate the costs and advantages of migrating to Exchange Server and create a detailed inventory of your existing email infrastructure. Progent can also manage a pilot deployment to confirm an Exchange transition plan. Progent will also audit your current email protection and propose polices and tools to protect against attacks.

  • Data and Application Software Porting
    Progent can design and carry out a data and software application transition plan that incorporates descriptions of information and software applications to be migrated, identification of technologies and processes to be used for the migration, risk analysis and risk minimization plans, complete project management services, schedule estimates of the migration and anticipated operational unavailability, validation processes, and critical back-out plans. Progent's migration team can promote the success of your data and software application porting project by providing certified MS SQL Server 2016 developers or MS SQL Server 2014 engineers and data porting professionals who are veterans of major projects such as Microsoft Dynamics GP/Great Plains migration.

  • Processor and Mass Storage Migration and Consolidation
    Processor and mass storage migration and consolidation from Sun Solaris to Windows can streamline network administration, enhance data integrity and accelerate network throughput. By eliminating unnecessary hardware and software and by deploying processor and storage resources efficiently, you can build an information architecture that is extensible, safe, easy to backup and recover, and affordable to administer and support. Progent's server and storage migration and economization service features a detailed strategy with an assessment of your existing server and mass storage infrastructure plus recommendations for equipment, applications, services, training, and support for validation piloting. Progent can assist you to develop and implement a consolidated, high-availability IT architecture based on detailed performance analysis and capacity modeling and can specify backup and restore strategies.
