Migration and Upgrade Services

Delivering Business Transformation through Middleware Migration

Whether you’re undertaking a WebLogic 12c upgrade from a legacy version, evaluating when best to implement a JBoss EAP 7 upgrade, or are considering an open source architecture alternative built around Tomcat or WildFly, we can provide the expertise you need to select and deploy middleware infrastructure on-premise, to the cloud, or as part of a hybrid solution.

We understand the risk incumbent upon those responsible for middleware migration and upgrade projects. Regardless of the project scope, the products involved or the platforms on which application and services will be deployed, our clients demand highly transparent migration planning and implementation strategies which not only meet their business transformation objectives, but which demonstrate clear middleware migration expertise.

Our senior consultancy team have years of experience in delivering successful middleware migration projects for clients requiring both product version upgrades and cross-platform migration. With our independent and client-oriented ethos, we’re able to offer services uninhibited by vendor influence, and only propose the migration solutions most appropriate to our clients’ middleware needs.

DESIGNING YOUR MIDDLEWARE MIGRATION STRATEGY

Regardless of what stage you’ve reached in your middleware migration project, be it product evaluation, proof of concept, or understanding the potential of cloud services, our comprehensive middleware migration assessment will provide the expertise you need to deliver a clear strategy for your business or organisation.

This significant service offering is designed to help you determine the issues you’re likely to face during migration. Delivered by specialists in the specific middleware technologies being migrated, this assessment will help expose potential risks and provide best-practice migration guidance, intended to reduce costs and deliver the project successfully and on time.

A typical engagement focuses on:

  • What new platforms can be considered?
  • What platform specific components are being used?
  • What dependencies exist outside of the platform?
  • How will the new platform impact the system architecture?
  • Which components are high risk and should be tackled early?
  • What can be migrated to the new platform?
  • How complex will it be to migrate to a new platform?
  • How will the new platform impact the supportability and manageability of the system?

Regardless of whether the upgrade is within your own data centre or is heading for the cloud, our consultancy team are not only experienced in handling the technical issues involved in large-scale migrations, but their understanding of the effects of operational service disruption means that they’re completely focused on operational continuity.

c2b2 not only understood the scope and importance of the WebLogic upgrade, but created an implementation plan completely in line with our strategic needs. Despite challenging schedules and the need for an unexpected roll-back, they delivered all four releases with complete success.
