Organizations migrate from Sun Solaris-based systems to MS Windows so they can derive more business value from equipment and software. The consequent Windows-based systems streamline administration, improve the efficiency of workers and network support personnel, reduce information duplication, increase information integrity, and allow for faster recovery from disaster. A MS Windows environment lets companies develop solutions rapidly and demands less effort to be expended on developing, deploying, and managing applications.

Progent can assist you to plan and deploy a smooth move from a Solaris-powered IT system to a Windows environment capable of supporting Microsoft's familiar office productivity suite, commercial applications, and software development tools. Progent's skilled Sun Solaris, Windows, and Cisco CCIE consultants and application experts can show you how to keep your data and minimize productivity disruption by creating and executing an effective transition strategy that preserves your existing investments in Sun Solaris applications and infrastructure. Progent can also assist to train your workers and IT group so your business stays productive.

Sun Solaris-to-Windows migration support expertise offered by Progent include:

  • Evaluation of Current Infrastructure
    Progent will help you determine the possible advantages and risks of transitioning an operating system, software application, computer, storage subsystem, or information base. The process produces a comprehensive evaluation of your information system, creates a baseline IT inventory, lowers engineering uncertainties, and inevitably results in a more affordable migration by conserving time and avoiding costly mistakes.

  • Migration Planning and Testing
    Progent will create a detailed transition deployment plan which may include validation installations. Progent practices a phased methodology with defined milestones to meet budgetary, scheduling, and technical goals while avoiding business disruption. This process is based on the best practices outlined in the Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF).

  • Exchange Migration Services
    Progent can create and carry out a comprehensive strategy for transitioning from Sun Solaris-based messaging to MS Exchange Server and can assist you to migrate Notes or Novell Groupwise applications to a Microsoft SQL application or a SharePoint Portal Server application. Progent's expert MS Exchange Server engineers can evaluate the risks and benefits of transitioning to Exchange Server and create a comprehensive inventory of your existing email infrastructure. Progent can also conduct a pilot implementation to confirm an Exchange transition plan. Progent will also evaluate your current email protection and propose procedures and products to protect against attacks.

  • Data and Application Software Migration
    Progent can design and carry out a data and software application migration strategy that incorporates descriptions of data and applications to be ported, description of technologies and processes to be utilized for the migration, risk analysis and risk minimization strategies, complete project management support, schedule estimates of the migration and expected operational unavailability, proof-of-concept processes, and critical back-out plans. Progent's migration team can promote the effectiveness of your data and software application porting initiative by offering certified Microsoft SQL Server 2016 developers or Microsoft SQL Server 2014 experts and data migration consultants who are experienced with major engagements such as Microsoft Dynamics GP/Great Plains migration.

  • Server and Storage Transition and Streamlining
    Processor and mass storage transition and consolidation from Sun Solaris to Windows can simplify IT administration, improve information integrity and speed system performance. By eliminating unnecessary equipment and software and by deploying server and storage assets efficiently, you can create an IT architecture that is expandable, secure, simple to archive and recover, and inexpensive to manage and maintain. Progent's processor and mass storage migration and consolidation service includes a comprehensive plan with an assessment of your existing server and mass storage environment plus recommendations for hardware, applications, services, training, and support for proof-of-concept piloting. Progent can assist you to design and implement a consolidated, fault-tolerant network infrastructure based on detailed performance analysis and capacity assessment and can specify backup and disaster recovery solutions.
