Companies move from Sun Solaris-based systems to Windows so they can extract more business value from hardware and applications. The resulting Microsoft Windows-powered systems simplify administration, improve the productivity of workers and IT personnel, reduce information duplication, improve data consistency, and allow for faster recovery from catastrophic failure. A MS Windows environment lets companies develop applications quickly and requires less time to be spent on developing, integrating, and managing application software.

Progent can help you to plan and deploy an efficient migration from a Solaris-based network to a Windows environment for running Microsoft's familiar Office software, commercial applications, and software development technology. Progent's skilled Solaris, Windows MCSE, and Cisco consultants and application experts can show you how to save your information and minimize productivity discontinuity by designing and implementing an economical transition plan that protects your past expenses for Sun Solaris software and network equipment. Progent can also help to train your workers and network support group so your business stays productive.

Sun Solaris-to-Windows transition consulting services offered by Progent include:

  • Analysis of Existing Environment
    Progent will help you evaluate the possible benefits and risks of transitioning an OS platform, application, server, storage subsystem, or information base. The process produces a comprehensive evaluation of your information system, defines a baseline IT inventory, lowers engineering risks, and inevitably results in a lower cost of transition by conserving time and dodging expensive mistakes.

  • Transition Strategy and Validation
    Progent will create a detailed migration deployment plan which may include pilot tests. Progent practices a staged approach with specified milestones in order to comply with economic, scheduling, and engineering goals while minimizing productivity disruption. This process is based on the best practices defined in the Microsoft Solutions Framework.

  • Microsoft Exchange Migration Support
    Progent can create and implement a comprehensive plan for transitioning from Solaris-powered messaging to Microsoft Exchange Server and can help you to migrate Lotus Notes or GroupWise applications to a MS SQL application or a SharePoint application. Progent's experienced MS Exchange Server consultants can assess the risks and advantages of migrating to Exchange Server and create a comprehensive record of your current email system. Progent can also conduct a proof-of-concept implementation to confirm a Microsoft Exchange transition strategy. Progent will also audit your current email protection and propose polices and tools to guard against attacks.

  • Information and Application Software Porting
    Progent can develop and carry out a data and application transition plan that incorporates definitions of data and applications to be migrated, identification of technologies and processes to be utilized for the move, risk analysis and risk mitigation strategies, complete project management services, schedule projections of the transition and anticipated network unavailability, proof-of-concept techniques, and critical back-out plans. Progent's consultants can promote the success of your information and application migration project by providing accredited Microsoft SQL Server 2016 integrators or MS SQL Server 2014 experts and data porting professionals who are experienced with major engagements such as Dynamics GP/Great Plains migration.

  • Server and Media Migration and Consolidation
    Server and storage migration and economization from Solaris to MS Windows can streamline IT management, improve data consistency and speed network performance. By eliminating unneeded equipment and software and by configuring server and storage resources effectively, you can build an IT architecture that is expandable, safe, simple to backup and recover, and affordable to administer and support. Progent's processor and media migration and consolidation support features a comprehensive plan with an inventory of your existing processor and storage environment as well as for equipment, applications, services, education, and support for validation testing. Progent can help you to design and implement an efficient, fault-tolerant IT architecture informed by detailed performance evaluation and capacity modeling and can recommend archiving and restore strategies.
