Simplify complex migrations

That’s because when you use PowerSyncPro, it is. There is lots of clever stuff going on under the hood of course, but the important thing is that your challenging, daunting migration task is vastly simplified by the application of the right tool for the job.

How can I Simplify Complex Migrations?

Migrating or synchronising Active Directory objects is a common exercise when businesses merge or divest, or regional offices want to combine their domains into an single Active Directory Forest. There are many reasons for migrating users, mailboxes, online storage, collaboration data, and all the other data that represents an organisation’s digital footprint.

Depending how long an organisation has been trading or operating, there may be a sprawl of locations, domains, users, and configurations to combine in the resulting optimised Active Directory structure. The migration may consist of several domains and several tens of thousands of users and/or computer if the organisation is a large global brand or government department. That is a lot of data to secure, map, and move, and potentially a lot of trust to build in the technology. In short – a very complex process involving lots of constituent elements.

PowerSync pro makes complex migrations simple. With its metaverse design, PowerSyncPro imports data from a whole range of directories into a central database, then runs a synchronisation to identify the appropriate changes that need to be made to the target directories.

Once the data is imported you can make synchronisation decisions based on any data from the source or target directory, or even merge in data from other sources. You can perform simple or complex bidirectional transformations on attributes as part of the sync process, and even specify deletion of target objects when the source object goes out of scope. Passwords can be bidirectionally synced too! All this means that your staggeringly complicated array of source directories and domains can be migrated as-is, reorganised into a single existing domain updating existing objects, or set up as a new domain or resource forest for example.

That’s it. Sounds simple? That’s because when you use PowerSyncPro, it is. There is lots of clever stuff going on under the hood of course, but the important thing is that your challenging, daunting migration task is vastly simplified by the application of the right tool for the job.

Migrations can be messy, in many cases because the user profiles and data that sit in the cloud is only part of merging or moving data from one organisation to another. If you have a large number of users working from workstations that are joins by AD or Azure Active Directory, then your administrators may have a long list of workstations to wipe and connect/join to the new Azure Active Directory. Luckily, the PowerSyncPro Windows 10 Workstation Migration Agent can help, and makes unjoining the old AAD/AD and re-joining the new extremely simple, with no changes to applications, browser preferences and user profiles – a much simpler and less time-consuming alternative to wiping a machine, giving a factory reset, or using Windows Autopilot, which is tantamount to a machine wipe.

Simple deployment and easy operation are the hallmarks of the PowerSyncPro Windows 10 Workstation Migration Agent. The agent can be deployed quickly and effectively through Intune, Group Policy Objects, and most other software deployment platforms, with most workstations only taking between 15 and 30 minutes to migrate fully after a messages to the user indicating the migration is about to happen, and a couple of restarts.

The real strength of PowerSyncPro is how easily and widely it can be installed and used, with total control over translation from Source to Target, there is minimal scope for errors during translation or lost objects, simple maintenance of directories after migration, lower time-costs for administrators, and seriously reduced downtime for users.

PowerSyncPro can only be installed, configured, and operated as part of a professional service package from Nero Blanco IT Limited. The Nero Blanco team are among the world foremost experts in the migration process, with more than 50 years of combined experience running and optimising migrations for global brands and would be happy to use their expertise to help ease your next large – or small – scale migration project.
