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
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.
