Our engineers use a structured process that includes conducting on-site client interviews to identify and examine existing/projected user system applications, surveying and assessing current information distribution and required system capabilities, determining and analyzing user network connectivity and traffic requirements; and preparing technical documentation detailing the results of our efforts and proposing recommended solutions.

Migration Planning. We can help clients define the options available to them to change from their current technical solutions to those necessary to fully support their projected future needs. Working with the client, we assist in identifying the prospective future technical environment, the impact of converting their existing technology, required resources, and a realistic schedule for implementing the desired conversion
