Data Migrations

Data migration projects can be complex and challenging, but at Lai and Associates we use a blend of technology and communications services to deliver these projects successfully. Our approach to data migration involves several phases, including planning, assessment, migration software installation, build, content seeding, cutover, and support. Throughout the process, we work closely with our clients to ensure that their needs are met and that the migration is completed smoothly and efficiently.


Configuring the connections to the user, domain and other environments is also a critical step before we commence migrations.

Vais-je perdre du service pendant la transition?

Nous nous efforçons d’activer les nouveaux abonnements avant la transition de votre configuration actuelle, en reflétant la configuration de votre licence ou en l'améliorant pour réduire les coûts et améliorer l'efficacité. Cette approche résout le problème de la perte d'utilisation par les utilisateurs finaux lors du processus de transition.
