Businesses migrate from UNIX to Microsoft Windows in order to extract more competitive advantage from equipment and applications. The resulting MS Windows-powered environments streamline management, enhance the productivity of users and network support personnel, minimize data replication, increase information consistency, and allow for smoother rebounds from disaster. A Microsoft Windows environment helps companies create solutions rapidly and requires less time to be spent on writing, deploying, and maintaining application software.

Progent can help you to design and deploy an efficient migration from a UNIX-powered network to a MS Windows network for running Microsoft's popular office productivity software, business software applications, and developer tools. Progent's experienced UNIX/Linux, Windows MCSE, and Cisco CCIE engineers and application specialists can help you to keep your information and minimize productivity discontinuity by creating and implementing an effective migration plan that protects your past investments in UNIX software and infrastructure. Progent can also help to educate your workers and IT staff so your company stays productive.

UNIX-to-Windows transition consulting services offered by Progent include:

  • Analysis of Existing Environment
    Progent will help you determine the possible advantages and risks of transitioning an operating system, application, computer, storage system, or information base. The process provides a comprehensive evaluation of your information environment, creates a basic network inventory, lowers engineering risks, and ultimately leads to a less expensive migration by saving time and avoiding costly pitfalls.

  • Migration Planning and Validation
    Progent will create a comprehensive transition implementation plan which may feature pilot tests. Progent uses a phased approach with specified waypoints in order to meet economic, scheduling, and technical objectives while avoiding business disruption. This approach is modeled after the best industry practices defined in the Microsoft Solutions Framework.

  • Exchange Migration Expertise
    Progent can produce and carry out a complete strategy for migrating from Solaris-powered messaging to MS Exchange Server and can help you to port Lotus Notes or Novell Groupwise applications to a MS SQL application or a SharePoint Portal Server application. Progent's expert Microsoft Exchange Server engineers can evaluate the risks and benefits of migrating to Exchange Server and generate a detailed record of your existing messaging system. Progent can also conduct a pilot deployment to confirm a Microsoft Exchange transition plan. Progent will also audit your existing messaging protection and recommend polices and products to protect against threats.

  • Data and Application Software Migration
    Progent can develop and implement a data and application migration strategy that includes descriptions of information and software applications to be moved, identification of technologies and procedures to be utilized for the move, risk assessment and risk minimization plans, complete project management support, timeline projections of the migration and anticipated network downtime, proof-of-concept processes, and emergency back-out procedures. Progent's consultants can ensure the effectiveness of your data and software application migration initiative by offering certified MS SQL Server 2017 consultants, MS SQL Server 2016 developers, or Microsoft SQL Server 2014 experts and data migration professionals who are experienced with major engagements such as Dynamics GP migration.

  • Processor and Media Transition and Consolidation
    Processor and storage transition and consolidation from UNIX to MS Windows can streamline network administration, improve data integrity and speed network throughput. By eliminating unneeded hardware and software and by configuring server and storage resources efficiently, you can build an IT architecture that is expandable, safe, easy to archive and recover, and economical to manage and support. Progent's server and storage migration and consolidation support includes a detailed plan with an assessment of your current processor and mass storage infrastructure as well as for equipment, software, services, education, and consulting for validation testing. Progent can assist you to design and execute an efficient, fault-tolerant network infrastructure based on detailed performance analysis and capacity modeling and can specify archiving and disaster recovery strategies.

If you need help migrating from a UNIX platform to a Windows-based network, call Progent at 800-993-9400 or visit Contact Progent.
