MIGRA Systems-Project Management/Consulting

Moving a data center to a new location, whether it is for expansion, cost savings or some other reason, is a significant undertaking. A project of this magnitude requires specialized Project Management experience to bring order to the planning, documentation, potential development, testing and the logistics involved with the move activities that have to take place to successfully move the facility.

MIGRA Systems, Inc has been able to maintain long term partnerships with its clients by providing value added services designed to solve their IT challenges. Moving a data center is no exception. We provide our data-center-relocation services by deploying a broad range of skills and capabilities to execute the DCR Relocation Process. One of those skills and capabilities is our Specialized Project Management practitioners. Whether you engage MIGRA Systems to manage the planning of your project or just want to use us to execute your plan, having an experienced and specialized Project Manager involved provides an easy way to reduce the risk inherent with a move.

MIGRA Systems, Inc has a sophisticated process for executing a Data-Center-Relocation project and we engage Experienced Project Managers to lead that process.

The process begins with a deep dive into your existing environment. This Present Method of Operation (PMO) review represents the starting point of the project. We look at the servers, applications, infrastructure, storage and interactions of them all to make sure we have identified the current environment completely. We also review service Level Agreements and your processes to insure that we understand the environment you must support. This environment is fully documented and approved by you before we move forward.

 

Our next step is to develop a picture of the Desired Future State (DFS) so we know what the conditions of success look like. This includes any changes you plan to make during the move, such as virtualization or technology uplifts or changes to processes or Service Level Agreements. We also document this environment and obtain your approval that we have captured your vision completely.

Once we have the starting point and the ending point, the Design Process is used to build a roadmap to get from one to the other. We determine everything that has to happen; software licenses required, hardware purchases, cable plans, network changes, etc in order to obtain that vision. If your strategy for moving includes swing equipment or net new investment, this will also be documented. This process allows us help you adjust your project budget to reflect what is really needed to move the data center. All of this information is documented in a Design Plan and approved by you before we go further.

Our last planning step is the Implementation Plan development. During this process we take the steps and changes outlined in the Design Plan and put a schedule together that includes the responsible party, pre-requisites, timeframes and resources needed to complete them. Once that plan is approved we move to the plan execution phase of the project.

It should be evident that this is a complicated undertaking and that no matter who is managing the overall project your resources will be needed to make the project a success. It should also be evident that having an Experienced Project Manager leading the combined team is absolutely key to their success. At MIGRA Systems we understand that some clients have the resources to plan their move on their own and that others have no ability to plan the move. The norm is usually somewhere in between where the client team and their partner combine resources to plan and execute a successful project. At MIGRA Systems we operate in all three climates. Our Project Manager can help your team, lead our team or manage a combined team to success.

Our Project Manager will also explain optional services and capabilities to you as their need becomes evident. For example, MIGRA Systems can provide Disaster Recovery services as part of the process of moving the data center. We believe that our Project Managers represent the difference between success and failure in a Data-Center-Relocation and we look forward to using our experience to make your DCR experience flawless.
