Businesses migrate from Solaris to MS Windows in order to derive more competitive advantage from hardware and software. The resulting Microsoft Windows-based systems simplify management, improve the productivity of users and network support personnel, minimize information duplication, improve data integrity, and allow for smoother rebounds from catastrophic failure. A Microsoft Windows environment helps businesses create solutions quickly and requires less effort to be spent on writing, integrating, and maintaining applications.

Progent can help you to plan and carry out a smooth move from a Solaris-powered IT system to a Windows environment for supporting Microsoft's familiar office productivity suite, business software applications, and software development tools. Progent's experienced Solaris, Windows, and Cisco consultants and application specialists can help you to keep your information and reduce business discontinuity by designing and executing an economical migration strategy that protects your past expenses for Solaris applications and network equipment. Progent can also help to train your workers and network support group so your business stays productive.
