Companies move from Sun Solaris-based systems to Windows in order to derive more competitive advantage from equipment and software. The resulting Microsoft Windows-based environments simplify management, enhance the efficiency of workers and IT personnel, minimize data duplication, increase information integrity, and allow for faster recovery from catastrophic failure. A Windows system helps companies develop applications quickly and requires less effort to be expended on writing, deploying, and managing applications.

Progent can help you to design and deploy a smooth migration from a Solaris-powered IT system to a MS Windows network capable of running Microsoft's popular Office suite, business software applications, and software development technology. Progent's experienced Solaris, Windows, and Cisco CCIE consultants and application experts can show you how to keep your data and reduce productivity discontinuity by designing and implementing an effective migration plan that preserves your past investments in Solaris applications and infrastructure.
