Transitional Data Services cofounder and CTO, Craig Macfarlane and TDS TransitionManager were featured in the October 20, 2016 edition of Corporate Vision magazine (CV).
We have selected TransitionManager for our annual Software and Technology Award for 2016 based on its unique capabilities in accelerating successful IT migrations in this complex hybrid environment.
CIOs face tremendous challenges. They are trying to become more agile in supporting the business while under constant pressure to contain costs. To achieve long term flexibility, Enterprises have come to realize that a hybrid computing approach is optimal – one that balances the benefits and trade-offs of conventional data centre, cloud and SaaS services.
TransitionManager was originally developed so that TDS could compete, win and thrive against some of the largest tech companies in the world. It has been further optimized and honed over the years as TDS continue to release new features and enhancements every quarter. “We continue to extend TransitionManager in two dimensions,” said Macfarlane. “First, we gain direct feedback from practitioners including our employees, partners and end customers, this is what purpose built is all about. Secondly, we always consider how to implement features so they cover multiple use cases in IT transformation, dev ops and resiliency,” Macfarlane concluded.

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.
A resilient IT environment goes beyond having a disaster recovery plan. Here are 9 tips for improving your IT resiliency.
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.
