SQL Server 2016 Modernization Process


We assess of the current state of your organization’s SQL Server Environment including data warehousing, applications, web services, feeds, reporting environments, backup, disaster recovery, and data governance.


We will work with you to develop a desired future state. We will identify areas to gain performance, utilize new functionality and decrease costs. Candidates for cloud migration are identified.


We will migrate your existing SQL ecosystem to the desired SQL 2016 configuration.  This can include data migration to new servers, updates to ETL processes, disaster recovery updates, etc.


We will develop and execute a test plan to validate that the future state meets the mutually agreed upon  requirements for performance and functionality.


The new SQL ecosystem is put into production with the old environment running in parallel for a mutually agreed upon period of time.


We will work with you to monitor the new environment for any functional or performance issues.  We will also help you identify if any opportunities for reducing cost and improving performance arise.
