Data Center Transformation projects are by nature large and complex. Their sheer size and complexity makes them difficult to manage to a successful completion. But like any other project, success means completion on time and on budget. PlateSpin Transformation Manager gives enterprises, managed service providers, and systems integrators the planning capabilities and automation they need to achieve success. Designed from the ground up to plan, track and execute large-scale data center transformation projects, PlateSpin Transformation Manager can easily manage multiple projects for multiple organizations or end customers, with built-in multi-tenancy to ensure security and confidentiality. PlateSpin Transformation Manager ensures that all stakeholders – both internal and external roles – have the visibility they need, from the business executive that needs an easy-to-consume project dashboard, to the granular detailed and technical view required by migration specialists. As the project progresses, and as individual workload migrations advance through the lifecycle (from planning, to submitted, to in-progress, to testing, and finally completion), PlateSpin Transformation Manager constantly updates the real-time dashboard and status reports to reflect the latest state of the project. Missed deadlines or schedule deviations generate warnings that Project Architects or Project Managers can act on as needed to keep the project on track. Watch our short introduction movie below to learn from Peter Clemons, our product architect, how you can ditch those hard-to-manage spreadsheets for true multi-tenant dashboards, and complete your projects involving thousands of migrations on time and on budget!
