Why system migration doesn’t have be a strain on resources

01 Feb 2018

Cloud-driven digital transformation is paving the way a huge amount of innovation and disruptive business models for Aussie organisations.

There are new cloud-based apps for just about any use case, however replacing existing apps completely can prove considerably difficult given their often complex and heavily customised nature.

Such migrations typically involve business re-engineering, process adherence, massive data migrations, extensive user training, and a high degree of complexity and risk.

Migration as a Service provides a way to mitigate these concerns, as it allows organisations to retain existing applications with all of their current configurations.

This service facilitates an easy, cost-effective method of moving workloads to new underlying compute platforms, without changing the way your business operates.

Migration as a Service offers a range of capabilities that allow organisations to more easily upgrade to new physical servers, consolidate servers to a virtual environment, move from one virtual environment to another and - of course -  move to public or private cloud.

Companies can take advantage of the benefits of cloud infrastructure such as availability, reduced capital cost, and scalable performance - or ‘right-sizing’ - without having complex application-level moves to the new breed of cloud-based software services.

Interactive, an IT services provider, offers a comprehensive Migration as a Service solution, with support provided by a team of specialists in server migration.

Migration as a Service allows organisations to migrate to the cloud, without sacrificing productivity.
