Organizations move from Solaris to Microsoft Windows so they can extract more competitive value from hardware and applications. The consequent Microsoft Windows-powered environments simplify management, enhance the efficiency of workers and network support staff, reduce data replication, increase data integrity, and allow for faster recovery from disaster. A Microsoft Windows system lets businesses develop solutions quickly and requires less effort to be expended on developing, deploying, and maintaining applications.
Progent can assist you to design and carry out a smooth migration from a Solaris-powered IT system to a MS Windows environment capable of running Microsoft's popular Office suite, business software applications, and developer tools. Progent's skilled Solaris, Windows, and Cisco consultants and application experts can show you how to keep your data and reduce productivity disruption by creating and executing an economical transition plan that preserves your past expenses for Sun Solaris software and network equipment. Progent can also assist to train your users and IT group so your business remains productive.
Sun Solaris-to-Windows migration consulting services available from Progent include:
