M.A.D. Migrations

What are the three most important parts for any migration? Planning, Planning, Planning...

Protecon specializes in the planning of migrations. Through our proprietary tool, we can plan a migration very quickly and can begin migrating in a matter of days.

Anyone can move data with a push of a button, but without proper planning and redundancy, a migration can go sideways really fast and that means loss of productivity for your company meaning lost revenue.

Security Policies can also be migrated from one platform to another, maintaining the current security policy that you have invested so much time into.

Let Protecon handle the heavy lifting for your next migration!

Most companies know what a nightmare it is for M.A.D. processes. Do You?

After a merger, acquisition or a divestiture, it’s a major challenge for the affected companies to create a workable and sustainable environment with all relevant information in their total systems. Without doing so, it can hurt business productivity, hinder easy access to data and sometimes create compliance issues.

The ultimate solution could be to consolidate or migrate from one system to another in order to maintain compliance to regulatory requirements, while decreasing operating costs. The trouble is, to the business community – especially senior management, migrating data seems like it should be an easy task. After all, it’s just moving data from one system to the other, right? Maybe, but probably not. That’s because systems within the combined company will most likely be incompatible. There may be applications using the same technology platforms, but be on different versions. One system could be out-of-the-box while the other could be highly customized. Data could be stored in multiple geographic locations. The quality of the data from one (or both) company(ies) could be very poor. And on and on it goes.

Let Protecon provide an initial assessment of your environment so that you know all there is to know about what needs to be done!

Identities in the Cloud are the future, however what can you do until you get there?

Microsoft’s identity solutions span on-premises and cloud-based capabilities, creating a single user identity for authentication and authorization to all resources, regardless of location.

But what about the pesky alternate IDs, what do you do with those? Most companies will begrudgingly configure ADFS for this scenario to maintain normalcy in their environment, but there are overhead costs associated with this. Protecon has developed a solution to customize the sign in experience to enable this scenario utilizing Entra ID authentication and allowing users to continue to use of the alternate id solution. Same Identity, same sign on to all cloud based and on-premises based applications.

Protecon can make your hybrid identity solution configuration easy. Ask us how!
