Westborough, MA—June 2, 2016 — Transitional Data Services (TDS), a leading provider of services and software to manage the end-to-end process for data center and IT transformations, announced today that it was named to CIOReview magazine’s list of 20 Most Promising Data Center Solution Providers of 2016.
The announcement was made as TDS and its president and co-founder, Michael Bullock, were featured on the cover of the magazine’s May, 2016 issue. Titled “Transitional Data Services: The Data Center and IT Transformation Specialist,” the article highlights how TDS and the company’s TransitionManager software are helping enterprises address the challenges and risks of data center transformation. TransitionManager is a cloud or premises-based software product that breaks down operating silo barriers, leverages reusable workstreams, and provides real-time visibility into project status and updates.
According to Jeevan George, managing editor of CIOReview, the magazine selected TDS based on its specialties in data center migration, transformation, relocation, consolidation, and strategy. CIOReview also noted the company’s services expertise in application migrations (including both virtual and cloud), and network and infrastructure design. “Attaining remarkable growth was indeed a tremendous achievement for Transitional Data Services,” said George. “Thereby, it is a pleasure to honor it by naming it in the list of 20 Most Promising Data Center Solution Providers 2016. I congratulate TDS and look forward to its continued success.”
“On behalf of everyone at TDS, we are grateful to CIOReview for acknowledging our growth and how TransitionManager enables rapid IT transformation,” said TDS President Bullock. “In today’s perpetually-evolving hybrid computing model, the lines are blurred between physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. Using TransitionManager, teams can visualize complex relationships and interdependencies across all IT infrastructure and operating silos, including application software, servers, storage, database and network devices. As such, TransitionManager both automates the tedious and error prone aspects of data center migrations and paves the way for ongoing transformation into the future.”
The CIOReview cover story is the latest in a series of events recognizing the potential for TransitionManager to accelerate IT transformation. Recently for example, TDS completed a transformation project with a global Fortune 1000 manufacturer well ahead of schedule. With help from TransitionManager, the company was able to: Conduct a tech refresh on its hardware; Migrate to a new data center facility, and Implement a new disaster recovery program.
Meanwhile, TDS was recognized in mid-2015 as a “cool vendor” by analyst firm Gartner in a report titled “Cool Vendors in Data Center Management, Power and Cooling, 2015.”

It’s not always possible to predict how and when a disaster will strike, however, there are steps CIOs can take to sustain business growth and ensure key IT initiatives don’t stop in their tracks. We are happy to share some of that guidance with the wider IT community.
Having a multi-cloud strategy helps organizations better manage changing requirements no matter how unpredictable. 2020 certainly is proof that we all need to be ready for the unexpected. Here are five reasons why a multi-cloud strategy is critical today.
You can't predict when a disaster will strike or when your normal operations are disrupted, but there are steps you can take to disaster-proof your applications and not only ensure business continues but key IT initiatives don’t get stopped in their tracks.
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.
