Data Ductus Partners with TDS to Accelerate Its Cloud Migration Services

Press release, Skellefteå (Sweden) and Westborough (MA, USA), October 31, 2018: Data Ductus announced today that it is partnering with Transitional Data Services (TDS), a global leader in data center, cloud and hybrid migrations to strengthen the Data Ductus IT Service Management offering. Data Ductus will join TDS’s TM:Accelerate Partner Program™ and leverage its TransitionManager™ software, which is designed to empower, enable and accelerate IT organizations’ abilities to prepare for, orchestrate and manage through both planned and unplanned change.

“We are excited about our partnership with TDS. Data Ductus will strengthen its offering in the IT Service Management area and expand our ability to support the whole IT operations area.” says Thomas Löfroth, Business Unit Director at Data Ductus. “Partnering with TDS will give Data Ductus a unique opportunity to efficiently handle complex cloud migration projects – and dramatically shorten the lengthy and difficult process associated with migrations.”

Data Ductus has successfully completed their first migration project using Transition Manager as the end-to-end orchestration tool. The project was complex with a large degree of transformation, along with constant changes in the scope. “With TransitionManager, we had a tool that helped us manage the project efficiently from day one until completion and generate zero rollbacks and a great reduction in overall costs,” said Magnus Sjöholm, CIO at Church of Sweden. “By leveraging the recipe function in TransitionManager we could re-create a very complex runbook with over 1,000 tasks for an event in a matter of seconds.”

Mike Bray, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales at TDS also commented on the partnership. “There is increased pressure on IT organizations in both the public and private sector to transform their environments to be more agile and able to rapidly adapt to today’s dynamic business needs. TDS addresses the challenges confronting IT by enabling them to more rapidly adopt new technology, more effectively prioritize their transformation investments and more efficiently manage operational, compliance and resilience risks. We are pleased to welcome Data Ductus to our TM:Accelerate Partner Program and give them access to our TransitionManager software to help facilitate the development of more responsive, agile IT environments for their clients across the globe.”
