Migration is an Essential Business Decision
Author: Mark Curran, Head of Enterprise Support Services
The right migration plan future-proofs organisations by overhauling entire systems, upgrading databases, or merging new data to other sources. With 15 years’ experience in deploying data migration solutions, OpenSky has the right experience to ensure you choose the right data migration path to enhance performance and security for your organisation.
We operate in a sector that is constantly evolving with software improving and changing continuously. They say that nothing lasts forever and in terms of technology and its speed of evolution, all technology inevitably loses its USP and gets replaced by something more superior. In terms of the end of support for Windows Server 2008/R2 and SQL Server 2008/R2, organisations are either vulnerable to security breaches or they are signing up for extended support which is an additional expense in the long-term. The good news is that there are always options.
A methodical approach to data migration will ensure an effective transition and minimal disruption to business operations. This requires careful technical planning and business collaboration, ensuring workloads run as expected and migration is successfully completed with limited impact on the organisation.
Whether you’re in the early stages of assessing your migration requirements, or about to begin migration of your data, or feeling pressured to migrate due to outdated legacy software, keep in mind that migration will be easier with a data specialist partner. Making the wrong choice can result in higher costs and lower success rates. OpenSky’s strong partner ecosystem, integrated approach and clear guidance will ensure a successful migration path and minimise risk and negative impacts to your organisation. We empower organisations to deliver operational efficiency by defining and implementing tailored migration solutions that support your business needs – this in turn improves business performance, delivering a competitive edge in an increasingly challenging business landscape.
The SQL Server Migration eBook has been developed for IT Directors & Leaders and their teams to gain a deeper understanding of how data migration is not just a consideration for IT, but rather an essential business decision. We provide an overview of the reasons you should migrate your data as well as the many risks and cost implications of not migrating. Plus, it will provide insight into the importance of developing a comprehensive & carefully planned data migration strategy.
