Organizations migrate from UNIX-based platforms to MS Windows so they can extract more business advantage from hardware and software. The resulting Windows-based environments streamline administration, enhance the productivity of users and IT personnel, minimize information duplication, increase data integrity, and allow for smoother rebounds from catastrophic failure. A MS Windows environment helps businesses develop solutions rapidly and demands less effort to be expended on writing, deploying, and managing applications.

Progent can assist you to design and deploy an efficient move from a UNIX-powered IT system to a Windows environment for running Microsoft's familiar Office software, commercial software applications, and software development technology. Progent's experienced UNIX/Linux, Windows MCSE, and Cisco consultants and application specialists can help you to keep your information and reduce productivity disruption by designing and implementing an effective transition plan that preserves your past expenses for UNIX applications and infrastructure. Progent can also assist to train your workers and IT staff so your company remains productive.

UNIX-to-Windows transition support expertise offered by Progent include:

  • Evaluation of Existing Environment
    Progent will help you evaluate the possible benefits and risks of migrating an OS platform, software application, computer, storage subsystem, or information base. The process produces a thorough assessment of your IT environment, creates a baseline resource inventory, lowers engineering uncertainties, and ultimately leads to a less expensive migration by conserving time and avoiding expensive mistakes.

  • Migration Planning and Validation
    Progent will create a detailed transition implementation plan which may include pilot installations. Progent practices a staged methodology with defined milestones to meet budgetary, scheduling, and engineering goals while minimizing productivity disruption. This process is modeled after the best practices outlined in the Microsoft Solutions Framework.

  • Exchange Migration Services
    Progent can produce and carry out a complete plan for transitioning from Sun Solaris-powered messaging to Exchange Server and can assist you to port Lotus Notes or Novell Groupwise software applications to a MS SQL application or a SharePoint solution. Progent's expert Microsoft Exchange Server consultants can evaluate the costs and benefits of transitioning to Exchange and create a detailed record of your current email infrastructure. Progent can also conduct a test deployment to help validate an Exchange transition strategy. Progent will also evaluate your current messaging protection and propose procedures and tools to protect against threats.

  • Information and Application Software Porting
    Progent can design and carry out a data and software application porting plan that includes descriptions of data and applications to be moved, description of technologies and procedures to be utilized for the move, risk analysis and risk mitigation strategies, complete project management services, critical path projections of the transition and expected network downtime, validation processes, and emergency back-out plans. Progent's consultants can promote the effectiveness of your information and application migration initiative by providing accredited MS SQL Server 2016 integrators or MS SQL Server 2014 engineers and data porting consultants who are experienced with major projects such as Dynamics GP migration.

  • Processor and Media Transition and Consolidation
    Processor and mass storage transition and economization from UNIX to MS Windows can simplify IT management, improve information integrity and speed system performance. By removing unneeded hardware and software and by deploying server and storage resources effectively, you can create an information infrastructure that is extensible, secure, easy to backup and recover, and inexpensive to manage and maintain. Progent's server and storage migration and consolidation support features a detailed plan with an assessment of your existing server and mass storage infrastructure plus recommendations for hardware, software, services, education, and consulting for validation piloting. Progent can help you to design and implement a consolidated, fault-tolerant network infrastructure informed by in-depth performance analysis and capacity assessment and can specify archiving and restore strategies.
