Businesses migrate from Solaris to Windows so they can extract more competitive value from equipment and applications. The consequent Windows-based environments streamline administration, improve the productivity of workers and IT staff, reduce information duplication, improve data consistency, and provide for smoother rebounds from disaster. A Microsoft Windows environment lets companies develop applications quickly and demands less effort to be expended on writing, deploying, and maintaining application software.
Progent can assist you to design and deploy an efficient move from a Solaris-powered IT system to a MS Windows network for supporting Microsoft's powerful office productivity suite, commercial applications, and software development technology. Progent's experienced Solaris, Windows, and Cisco engineers and application experts can show you how to keep your data and reduce business disruption by designing and implementing an economical transition strategy that preserves your past investments in Solaris applications and infrastructure. Progent can also help to educate your workers and network support group so your company remains productive.
Solaris-to-Windows migration support expertise available from Progent include:
