FAQs

How do you approach these projects?

We are very careful in the planning; our aim is to minimise system changes where possible, and keep a clear line of communication with the activities being performed. 

Supporting this approach is our deep expertise in the technology along with a wealth of experience in performing complex migration and upgrade projects.

What are the benefits?

We understand the balance of keeping critical systems stable and operating – and the opportunities provided from adopting the latest technologies. We bring this expertise to solve the challenges of delivering successful upgrade and migration projects with minimal disruption to your business operations.

This enables you to plan and execute strategies to take advantage of the latest technologies – with the confidence of having BSC as your partner along this journey.

What are these types of activities you take in mitigating the risk?

The key ingredients are planning and expertise in completing the upgrade with the lowest risk. 

You cannot create an effective plan if you do not have the expertise. Likewise, you cannot complete the project to standard if you do not have the expertise.

What are the potential risks?

There are usually two areas of risk:

  • The database system performance or stability changes after the upgrade, so users might experience poor performance or a hung system causing major impacts to business operations. 
  • There may also be problems during the upgrade that forces a rollback to existing systems. Each scenario carries its own costs. 

Steps can be taken to minimise problems arising through careful planning and testing.

What type of testing is done to make sure it works?

We are flexible working within customer timeframes.

We create a test environment and run multiple iterations to ensure the solution can be applied successfully. This allows us to identify the changes forward and any rollback changes.

Do you have case studies of this work?

Yes. You can view our case studies here.
