Navigating Divestiture Migrations
New White Paper—Navigating Divestiture Migrations: Pointers for Success
Mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures are keeping MSPs busy performing migrations. BitTitan has just published a new white paper to share what we’ve learned using MigrationWiz for these often tricky, high-stakes projects. The white paper walks you through the ins-and-outs of divestitures, when an organization spins out one or more of their business units into other organizations.
Divestitures are done for three broad reasons: Selling the business unit to a third party, known as a carve-out; a spinoff which turns a business unit into an independent operating company; or a breakup which separates the parent company into multiple independent companies. Read our white paper to learn about these important aspects of divestitures:
IT roles and responsibilities: How to organize the work and what role an MSP can play in making sure the divestiture runs smoothly.
Discovery and scoping: The importance of being thorough and asking a lot of questions in order to clearly understand both the destination and source environments before the migration begins.
End-user issues: Understanding not just the infrastructure, but also the policies and norms of both the division being divested and the company they’re joining.
Security and legalities: Knowing the importance of a TSA (transition services agreement), and how it may be set up differently depending on the country in which the companies reside.
Confidentiality and data integrity: Helping companies guard their divestiture plans in order to protect data and avoid disclosures of sensitive information – including whether or not the divestiture is happening.
Email issues and business continuity: Looking out for and handling address conflicts, addressing conventions, and federated accounts.
Migration execution: Tips on what to watch out for during the migration itself.
End-user training: Helping users embrace their new environment without losing productivity.
