March 10, 2020 – Westborough, Ma. – TDS today announced innovative new features in its TransitionManager platform, built to plan, collaborate and orchestrate successful execution of application modernization, data center and cloud migrations, and recovery / DR initiatives. TransitionManager is the industry-leading software platform that provides end-to-end orchestration for key platforms like VMware, AWS, Azure, hybrid cloud, and physical environments.
“Implementing edge, containers and other new technology is all about driving business growth. But CIOs are finding it a huge challenge to keep pace with these new technologies while still struggling to make much progress toward cloud adoption. If the businesses are to scale up quickly, IT must be able to make changes faster. But IT leaders are taking big risks if they minimize the complexity of the environment and follow traditional decision-making processes,” said Michael Bullock, CEO and co-founder of TDS. “To avoid organizational friction and prevent projects from stalling, these initiatives can no longer be managed by independent teams or solely through the lens of IT. Success is dependent on breaking down the barriers between IT and business and establishing close collaboration using a common set of tools especially designed to support that collaboration,” Bullock concluded.
Since becoming commercially available in 2014, TransitionManager software has helped hundreds of customers migrate over 250,000 applications and over one million workloads. Now, version 5.0 builds on this success with innovative new features to power IT transformations:
Eric Kraieski, VP of the TDS software business unit commented, “With the new features of TransitionManager 5.0, we offer organizations a more efficient and effective platform for collaboration and planning which will help them succeed in their ongoing business transformation and IT modernization efforts. These features leverage automation to present a holistic and actionable view of the entire IT environment so that teams can collaborate together and then orchestrate complex workstreams so that the human and automated tasks run faster, smoother, and more efficiently.”
TransitionManager software is available as a SaaS or on-prem license. It is available directly from TDS, through our partner network, from AWS marketplace and is on the GSA schedule. TDS offers software adoption services such as onboarding, training, knowledgebase, and consulting services. The company’s experts also offer hands-on project acceleration services to help you get started or to complete your full end-to-end modernization or migration project on an accelerated, outsourced basis.

Follow these key cloud migration best practices for successful cloud adoption in your organization.
When executing a cloud strategy it takes time to understand how your apps work, identify those most critical to business, which are best fit for the cloud, and which require modernization before migrating. What if you could accelerate this process by automating your toolchain?
We recently collaborated with a solutions architect at AWS on a blog to describe how TransitionManager provides the necessary insight to understand complex environments to help teams analyze, plan, understand, and reduce the risks associated with migrations.
When teams use a single platform they can take a holistic view of their project. Rather than using discrete tools to individually track spend, identify security vulnerabilities, and manage governance, an orchestration platform enables teams to assess and evaluate these areas - and more - in relation to each other. And this leads to better decision making, better planning, and improves the likelihood of delivering expected business outcomes.
Organizations face challenges when confronted with a cloud migration, whether they are just beginning or are under pressure to accelerate their journey to the cloud. So where are organizations going wrong when planning and executing their cloud migration strategy?
