Upgrades & Migrations



Technology platform upgrades and migrations

Have you identified the need to deploy a new platform to support one or more elements of your technology infrastructure? Selecting the correct technology platform for your current needs, allowing expansion for your known future needs and retaining flexibility for your yet unknown future technology needs is a complex area. The increasing demands of your organization and your users drive change in the foundation of your IT infrastructure.

Your organization's polices and culture will define data storage, security, and usage requirements but this needs to be examined in the context of technology constraints and the criticality of the systems covered to your business operations.With the increasing use of cloud and cloud / on-premise hybrids the technical platform needs to support current and aspirational requirements.

When planning the physical and logical architecture of a new technical platform it is best to supplement in-house knowledge with specialist skills and personnel with specific experience to complement the organization's own team. With the critical nature of SharePoint and Microsoft products to an organization, risk should be mitigated but by working with Bluecube ICT we can also help you exploit the opportunities that re-platforming can deliver. Implementation follows a thorough discovery and planning phase where we can work with you on farm deployment preparation, scripting, load testing as well as ensuring that the correct documentation, governance and service level policies are implemented. The solution that is right for your organization will depend on the applications and services you use, the workload service dependencies including search and user profiles needs and any technology or platform constraints.
