Data Center Migrations in a High Stakes Business Environment
With the reality that the success of your business is critically linked to IT, the stakes for a significant event like a migration are raised exponentially. While migrations are common today, the path to a successful one can be anything but smooth due to numerous factors. That doesn’t mean the need to migrate assets, applications and/or data has to put your business in a “boom or bust” scenario, but rather you need to have a well-thought plan that greatly minimizes or even eliminates risks and maps you to short and long-term success.
