Data Center Migration Services

Data Center migrations are highly visible, strategic initiatives that must be completed without impacting critical business services. Success requires a comprehensive migration methodology, detailed planning and an experienced technical team.

Data Center Migration Plan

Data Center Migration Plan

As part of the planning process, CTM works with our customers to estimate migration costs, including infrastructure, application, and vendor resources. Historically, over 50 percent of data center migrations exceed budget, and this is generally due to lack of planning and expertise. Based on the complexity of the applications in scope, the level of legacy system technical debt and resource maturity, we can help you more accurately determine the cost and time to migrate.

CTM provides specialized Migration Project Management Services to support data center relocation efforts. This includes financial management, status reporting, change control tracking, move group plans, and risk management.

For most organizations, a data center move is one of the most complex initiatives an IT team will take on. Risk can be exceedingly high since this has the potential to impact any business application being supported by compute, databases, file servers, storage, or networking.

Gartner notes that seven out of ten data center migrations will incur significant delays or unplanned downtime. While risks are high, working with the right resources, approach and experience can make all the difference. Gartner, in a 2017 article, recommends “leveraging specialist migration partners to support or augment enterprise resources.”

CTM Technology group has the experience, methodology, tools and business acumen to guide your organization through this key effort and minimize your risks. Check out our Success Stories for example case studies.
