When an organisation needs to perform an upgrade or migration to one or more large or mission critical systems, it can be termed a major change project. Examples include:
- Desktop upgrades
- Infrastructure Upgrades
- Data centre migrations
- Migrations to the cloud
- Mergers of several similar systems into a single one, or splits of a single one into several
- Migration of desktop applications to application delivery software.
In a major change project, it is essential to avoid unscheduled outages and loss of data. Planned outages should be kept to a minimum, and if possible kept outside outside business hours.
Automation Consultants has considerable experience of performing major change projects. It has an experienced cadre of consultants familiar with the complexities and potential pitfalls of these kinds of projects.
It has developed a set of tools to aid in some of the required activities, for example the Opswave discovery tool, which maps out the servers of a data centre and , and specialised scripts to migrate data quickly during short out-of-hours time windows.

In an agile workflow changes to source code should be deployed and tested early and often – as soon as there is a working component you try it out straight away. After working with Automation Consultants all the developer had to do was click a button and wait 20 minutes to register the changes to the advertising platform.
