Database Migrations and Consolidations

Information Technology Challenge: Delivering Successful Database Consolidations and Migration Solutions

IT organizations are continually asked to do more with less by driving costs out of IT process and systems. Application and database consolidations and migrations are opportunities to achieve substantial cost savings, but they don’t come for free. As more resources are devoted to migrations and consolidations, organizations are seeking ways to reduce the time, cost and risks associated with these projects.

Teleran’s Solution – Executing Faster, with Lower-Risk Consolidations and Migrations

Teleran’s consolidation and migration assessment solution minimizes the time to completion, the cost and manpower as well as the risks of consolidations and migrations. Teleran does this by providing insight into actual user and application usage patterns and resource demands. Teleran’s automated process identifies issues in the current environment that represent risks to a smooth and timely consolidation and migration project. It also guides the design of optimally performing and efficient consolidated database models.

Without Teleran’s automated solution, the assessment process consumes weeks of time and labor. Worse, it usually captures just a small sample, or anecdotal and often inaccurate descriptions of actual usage. Teleran’s definitive process significantly reduces project time and labor needed to collect usage information and to thoroughly analyze it. This reduces “trial-and-error surprises” that add significant time, costs and risks to consolidation and migration projects.
