Benefits of Using Cutover for Data Centre Migration
Avoiding downtime and data loss are two of the main concerns when undergoing a data centre migration. Cutover reduces these risks by providing one platform to plan, orchestrate and visualise the entire migration process.
The average major data centre migration project will cost at least £1 billion. Poor planning and visualisation increase the likelihood of hidden costs being overlooked in the early stages and unforeseen issues cause delays, leading to increased labour costs.
Using Cutover to plan and run the migration allows you to spot and plan for potential problems early and see where inefficiencies occur, leading to continuous improvement and reduced costs.
Improve Planning and Testing
Easily coordinate migration and implementation plans and tests. Lay out the detailed steps to be performed during the actual data migration, allowing you to spot potential problems early on.
Reduce Migration Duration
64% of migration projects finish behind schedule, with most taking two years or longer. On average, 75% of delays occur in the handover interface between tasks and teams of people. Cutover allows you to visualise and pinpoint the areas of human orchestration that lead to recurring delays, allowing you to save hours on migration activities.
Achieve a 30% increase in capacity by removing repetitive manual tasks such as chasing status updates by phone and email. The orchestration and visualisation provided increase the capacity of the central coordination and command & control teams by removing the need to seek one-to-one feedback from the teams that are progressing the plan.
Orchestrate Humans and Technology at Pace
Cutover is uniquely positioned to enable enterprises to improve their data centre migration process, encompassing the people involved as well as the technology they use.
