Migration Services and Software for Enterprise Business
Enterprise customers often operate complex core infrastructures to support their business. These systems and solutions have evolved over time and are expensive to maintain. This can result in being unable to meet business needs on time and poor visibility of assets.
When it comes to upgrading these services the inherent complexity results in multiple work streams of integrated technology upgrades. This increases the overall risk and can potentially affect the planned return on investment.
Often large infrastructure transformation projects do not realise a full return on cost savings, as legacy systems are not decommissioned due to fear of failure on upstream systems. In addition, as cloud technology matures there are new choices to allow IT services and solutions to be more flexible and responsive to business needs, but these can potentially make the environment more complex.
In these scenarios we understand it is often difficult to deliver projects on time.
How we can help
At Penman, we start by assessing and identifying the difficult project deliveries. By identifying these elements early we try to minimise late identification of expensive changes within a project and highlight the correct resource in order to deliver. Where possible we will demonstrate what would happen if the difficult project deliveries are not updated/migrated.
With a pedigree of on-premise and an early adopter of Microsoft cloud services we can help select and implement the most appropriate solutions for our customers. By maintaining expertise in both we are not limited to recommending either on-premise or cloud solutions. For most businesses there is a case for a “hybrid” solution.
We understand that implementing a successful solution is about more than technology. Hence we look at all factors of the business – from services delivered to the people, how they operate and the processes they follow.
Customer’s current asset database or CMDB often suits deployment and licensing but does not suit large scale migration projects. Before a migration project can commence it often takes a dedicated team to identify users, computers and applications. This initial discovery causes delay and can often miss applications which are more expensive to package late in the project life-cycle.
In response we provide software that has the migration manager in mind. This software is based on our own industry experience which dates back to the first versions of Microsoft Windows.
Our software is constantly evolving therefore we work in Partnership with customers, customising software functionality to meet their business need and integrate into their systems.
