Business Relocations are a painful but necessary reality - don't sweat IT!
As businesses grow and change it becomes necessary to perform relocations…
Acquiring a business
Outgrowing the current space
The current space no longer accomodates the business functions as it once did
New lines of business
The reasons are varied…but during and after the move the information technology still needs to function. We assist our clients in planning for relocating in such a way that the business interruption is absolutely minimized. Our planning is solid enough that we relocated a business from Overland Park, KS to Edmond with less than 24 hours of downtime. We sweat the IT details (so you don’t have to):
Identify hardware assets for recycling
Ensuring hardware destruction satisfies compliance requirements
Ensuring alarm and security systems and that heating/air-conditioning and humidity controls and monitoring are planned for
We make sure that equipment loading paths are adequate, and verify load plans for server room floors will not create problems (it’s surprising how much cabinets, equipment, and battery backup systems weigh!)
Planning for phone system migrations
Planning required cabling for servers, network equipment, and computers as well as phones
Planning for required service and VPN changes for connections to the network at the new site, and ensuring vendors are notified of new addresses and service timeframes
Ensuring adequate power and power distribution in the new location
Planning for adequate rack and cabinet space in the new server and equipment locations
And so forth….
We have moved business IT for hospitals, clinics, schools, manufacturers and financial services companies among others.
