CA Technologies Intros Scalable, Desktop Migration Manager
May 23, 2014
When organizations initiate system migrations to enhance the security and productivity of IT systems they face numerous hurdles, especially while recreating each user’s unique desktop environment and executing upgrades or enhancements to thousands of PCs.
The migration process involves the retaining and transferring of system and application settings, network and printer settings, data files and folders, email address books, preferences and more. Such an elaborate process is bound to be hectic when performed manually leading to errors and more expenses.
To help such organizations, CA Technologies (News - Alert) unveils new CA Desktop Migration Manager (CA DMM) to help IT departments to transition from Windows XP to secure operating systems easily.
CA Technologies specializes in providing IT management solutions that help in the management of secure complex IT environments that support agile business services. The company’s software and SaaS (News - Alert) solutions can transform infrastructure and secure data and identities, from the data center to the cloud.
The CA DMM is a scalable, migration solution that will help the IT management to quickly upgrade and maintain laptop and desktop systems. The solution also facilitates zero-touch migration when used with CA client automation.
The new solution will help customers migrate to modern operating systems and in the process eliminate security loopholes and reduce migration while at the same time improving productivity.
The entire migration process performed by CA DMM encompasses all unique bookmarks, address books and even personalized background images. The upgrade will be seamless with no downtime and customers need not reconfigure their systems.
Customers can migrate to secure operating systems besides reducing service desk calls. Furthermore CA DMM is agentless making it suitable for use with other lifecycle management products during the migration process. The solution can be downloaded for free for enterprises that are using Windows XP, as Microsoft (News - Alert) has discontinued support for it.
SOASTA, the leader in cloud and mobile testing has partnered with CA Technologies to integrate SOASTA’s cloud based Web testing solution, CloudTest with CA Service Virtualization and CA LISA Test software suites. The new integrated solution, CA LISA Cloud Test, will offer Web and mobile developers an advanced global test platform. The integrated test platform can simulate any and every possible user scenario that a website or mobile app may experience, all within minutes.
