VIZIM: Migrations Services

Migrations often appear to be just a simple exercise of transferring bits from one system to another, then telling users to change their SCM. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth! The transfer of bits is the easy part. It is the process modifications, build changes, schedule sequencing, user training, and a plethora of other compounding issues that create the real challenges and cost overruns. A large staff and on-the-job learning is no match for VIZIM’s 30+ years of migration expertise when dealing with mission critical issues and looming deadlines. VIZIM migration project teams have the technical and training experience to remove the risk and ensure migration success. Over the past 10 years VIZIM has developed a proprietary set of custom migration tools crucial to meeting the needs of the most complex environments. Without the VIZIM customized tool sets, migration schedule management and disaster recovery are difficult, if not impossible. Full history migrations are a VIZIM speciality. Some of our more popular offerings are:
Full history ClearCase™
including a wide range of artifacts, soft links, renames, moves, deletes, branching, and re-creation of ClearCase sparse branches as Perforce fully populated branches.
Full history Visual Source Safe™
including shares, renames, deleted files, version 2005 capabilities, and the ability to handle VSS databases of more than 40 gig.
Full history Subversion™
including branching. All VIZIM migration packages include Perforce set-up, legacy migration, advocate training, process adaptation, system administration training, user training, and more.
With VIZIM migration services, end-users are productive right from the "go live" date!
