Xceed Group, the IT professional services specialist, has launched its mX migration accelerator platform, which is designed to help companies overcome the challenges associated with major migration projects.
“Business strategies are increasingly being driven by new technologies, particularly the opportunities presented by cloud, mobile, social media and analytics,” said Simon Johnson, migration practice director at Xceed Group. “We built mX in order to give our clients an on-demand, transparent view of their migration programme, ultimately accelerating migrations without increased risk or cost.”
The group is promoting mX as the only end-to-end platform that allows firms to assess, plan and manage migration programmes, as well as the first integrated planning and management platform dedicated to delivering asset modelling, semi-automated designs and creation of technical architecture, which it underpins with an integrated workflow.
The launch of mX follows technology researcher Gartner’s recent report that 70% of datacentre migrations will incur significant time delays or cause unplanned downtime. Mergers are at their highest level since 2007, with reports of dealmaking soaring during the first six months of 2014, and global mergers and acquisitions totalling £1.03 trillion.
“IT migrations are some of the most complicated events an organisation will face,” said Xceed managing director Paul McGolpin. “mX helps datacentre hosting companies, system integrators and companies looking to do a large-scale, enterprise wide migration deliver better services to their customers.
“The ability to implement rapid change effectively has become a pre-requisite for a highly effective IT function, but the challenge is achieving this without disrupting the current environment. This is what we solve with mX.”
mX is available for both datacentre and desktop large scale migrations, with plans to extend the platform to include cloud and data migrations within the next six months.
