Companies move from Solaris to Windows so they can extract more business value from hardware and applications. The consequent MS Windows-based systems streamline administration, improve the productivity of workers and IT staff, reduce information replication, increase data consistency, and allow for faster rebounds from disaster. A Windows system lets companies create solutions quickly and demands less time to be expended on writing, deploying, and managing application software.
Progent can assist you to plan and deploy a smooth migration from a Sun Solaris-powered network to a Microsoft Windows network capable of supporting Microsoft's popular office productivity software, commercial software applications, and software development tools. Progent's experienced Solaris, Windows, and Cisco CCIE engineers and application specialists can help you to keep your data and minimize productivity discontinuity by creating and implementing an effective migration plan that protects your existing investments in Solaris applications and infrastructure. Progent can also help to train your users and IT group so your business stays productive.
Sun Solaris-to-Windows transition consulting expertise offered by Progent include:
- Analysis of Existing Environment
Progent will help you determine the possible benefits and risks of migrating an OS platform, software application, computer, storage subsystem, or information base. The exercise produces a comprehensive evaluation of your information environment, defines a baseline network inventory, lowers technical risks, and ultimately results in a less expensive transition by saving time and dodging costly pitfalls.
- Transition Planning and Validation
Progent will create a detailed transition implementation plan which may include pilot installations. Progent uses a staged approach with defined milestones in order to meet budgetary, timing, and technical objectives while minimizing productivity discontinuity. This approach is modeled after the best industry practices defined in the Microsoft Solutions Framework.
- Exchange Migration Support
Progent can create and carry out a complete plan for transitioning from Sun Solaris-powered email to MS Exchange Server and can assist you to migrate Lotus Notes or Novell Groupwise software applications to a Microsoft SQL application or a SharePoint Portal Server solution. Progent's experienced Exchange Server engineers can assess the risks and advantages of transitioning to Exchange and create a detailed inventory of your current email system. Progent can also manage a pilot deployment to help validate a Microsoft Exchange transition plan. Progent will also audit your current email security and propose procedures and tools to guard against threats.

Progent can develop and carry out an information and software application migration plan that includes definitions of data and software applications to be moved, description of tools and procedures to be used for the move, risk analysis and risk mitigation plans, complete project management services, critical path projections of the migration and anticipated operational downtime, validation processes, and critical back-out plans.

- Server and Mass Storage Transition and Consolidation
Processor and storage migration and economization from Sun Solaris to Windows can simplify network management, enhance information integrity and accelerate system performance. By eliminating unnecessary hardware and software and by deploying processor and storage assets efficiently, you can build an IT infrastructure that is extensible, safe, easy to backup and restore, and affordable to manage and maintain. Progent's processor and mass storage migration and consolidation support includes a detailed strategy with an assessment of your current server and storage infrastructure plus recommendations for equipment, software, services, training, and support for proof-of-concept testing.
