Serviced Migrations with CloudM
If your company is growing, a migration is in your future. Whether you’re switching vendors, acquiring businesses, or employing more staff; migrations are the next step for a company heading up the ladder.
But migrations can be tricky. If done incorrectly, they can lead to downtime, data loss and, in worse-case scenarios, legal troubles.
That’s why it pays to have the experts do your migration for you. That’s us.
We minimise the risk associated with a migration. And there are risks. From losing all your data to complying with GDPR, there is a lot to worry about, especially if you are trying to do it yourself.
We’re the experts, we do this day in, day out. We’ve overseen thousands of migration projects, with millions of users. Companies have relied on us and our expertise to get the job done quickly, efficiently and securely.
A migration gone wrong can be devastating for a business. From missing users to applying incorrect permissions, there are many things that can go wrong for a company trying to do its own migration, which is why it’s best left to the experts.
By paying for a serviced migration, you are paying for our experience, knowledge and judgement. We can do the migration faster than in-house IT teams, taking away the need for them to learn the tool, understand the tool, deploy the tool, run the tool AND get on with their day-to-day work at the same time.
Unseen issues that crop up might take days or even weeks to fix, whereas we’ve seen it all before. By paying for a serviced migration, you pass the responsibility to us, making your life easier, allowing your business to continue while we get on with the migration in the background.
Most people can change a tyre if they get a puncture, but it’s easier, safer and faster if you just call roadside assistance to do the job for you. A migration is the same.
A company’s IT team can probably do a simple migration using our software, but it’s going to take time, money and a very steep learning curve. A puncture is one thing, but how about changing an oil filter? Again, the average Joe could probably do it at a push, but for something that’s more complicated, why not let the experts handle it?
An IT department should be about growing, developing and improving the offering for end users. The last thing they need is to be bogged down with a migration they’re not overly familiar with, and which could last months. And the more complex the migration, the more issues come with it.
We have seen in-house IT teams try to do complicated projects on their own, mess it up, and then come back to us to do it anyway. And we guarantee you, every single one of them wished they just let us handle it from the start.
We are the migration experts, let us get on with it so you don’t have to worry about it.
We start with an initial consultation. This allows us to understand and scope out your company’s needs, giving everyone a clear understanding of what the migration should entail and what’s being agreed by both parties.
After that initial assessment there are three stages:
Initiation: Setting the project up for success. Ensuring both parties are fully aware of their roles and responsibilities and the steps necessary to achieve a successful migration.
Project delivery: Stick to the plan that’s been drafted but adapt where necessary.
Closure: Often overlooked by other companies, we make sure we wrap the project up properly. It’s important that both parties are happy with the migration and expectations were met. If there are any issues or complaints, we have a resolution process which fully investigates the problem until it’s resolved.
Very little. We’ll take care of pretty much everything.
The only thing you have to worry about is providing access credentials to source and destination platforms at the beginning - where your data is coming from and where it’s going to. We even give you the template to load everything, making it as simple as possible.
We’ll take care of the rest.
Our experience in migrations is what sets us apart from the rest. We’ve performed over 65 million migrations with a 99.8% success rate. We work with huge brands like Netflix, Spotify and Uber, and we’re proud to be a Google Cloud Premier Partner and a Gold Microsoft Partner.
We have standardised our migration procedure, meaning every customer receives the same level of service and dedication, whether they’re migrating 10 users or 10,000.
When a client signs up for a serviced migration, they are assigned a deployment specialist and a project manager. The project manager will constantly keep them up to date with everything, reporting back regularly so you never have to ask how things are going - we’ll always keep you in the loop.
The deployment specialist is a migration expert and can fix issues before they become a problem. Being able to spot a bump in the road ahead of time means it can be resolved before you are even aware there was anything to worry about.
Why take the risk with your data? Leave migration to the migration experts. We can do it faster, more effectively, and at less risk than in-house teams.
