Transitional Data Services (TDS) has been helping customers with cloud migration, datacenter migration and consolidation since 2002. Through the process of moving IT applications and infrastructure from one place to another, the company found that the traditional methods of managing these projects don’t work very well: spreadsheets don’t scale, and existing project management software doesn’t have the granularity required to tackle large migration projects. TDS’s answer to this problem? Develop a tool and sell it to other companies. The 451 Take
Migration projects are complex and can easily go astray, particularly if project managers are not experienced – and after all, how many datacenter migrations does a typical manager deal with in a career? This is where specialized software comes in handy – TransitionManager is based on TDS’s years of experience, so presumably it helps reduce mistakes and saves time, effort and money. The software will likely appeal to multi-tenant datacenter (MTDC) operators that offer (or are thinking about offering) migration services to their customers, as well as to consultants and IT service providers. Perhaps by easing the pain of migration, it will allow more enterprises to shift their workloads (and assets) to locations that make more strategic or financial sense.

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.
As disruption accelerates, the requirement to adapt is more urgent. At the pace of today’s business, here's why you can't afford the risk of taking it slow.
Skellefteå (Sweden) and Westborough (MA, USA), October 31, 2018: Data Ductus announced today that it is partnering with Transitional Data Services (TDS), a global leader in data center, cloud and hybrid migrations to strengthen the Data Ductus IT Service Management offering.
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.
