TDS and the anatomy of datacenter relocations
Analyst: Rick Kurtzbein

One of the most significant barriers to moving from an in-house to outsourced datacenter services model is migration. We’ve said it before and will say it again: datacenter relocation projects are not short and easy projects to tackle on an evening or weekend. These projects require careful planning that can take months or even years. For this reason, companies are offering datacenter migration services as a way to ease the burden and help IT organizations to understand their options and guide them as they migrate to new environments. We discussed datacenter relocation services with Transitional Data Services (TDS) as more companies choose to leverage alternatives to owning in-house datacenters.
The TDS application centric approach, with a business aligned and technology enabled methodology allows them to be highly successful."
Working with our partners at VMware, many customers across the globe have seen how TransitionManager can reduce risk, eliminate blind spots and complete migration projects faster with minimal disruption to operations.

IT organizations need a platform built specifically for planning, managing, and executing migrations, recovery events, M&As and other transformation projects, end-to-end.
Making decisions using data that is pieced together through a combination of spreadsheets, data exports, and email messages doesn’t provide project teams with a comprehensive understanding of compliance, security and other business requirements. That’s why TDS enhanced its rules engine, making it easy to write simple scripts that apply business rules to data, ensuring that the results will be aligned with business goals.
We continue to evolve TransitionManager’s capabilities, focusing first on what problem we are trying to solve for the customer. For enterprise architects and cloud professionals, finding the right information and leveraging the variety of tools available to plan and manage IT transformation projects is challenging and complex.
