For over 15 years, Datatek has been answering these types of questions for clients and providing them solutions. In every migration solution, Datatek strives to use automation whenever possible.
While automation provides all these types of benefits, Datatek recognizes that a one-size-fits-all automation approach does not meet the needs and preferences of most clients. While one customer desires an item to be migrated a certain way, another customer wants it migrated in a completely different manner. Datatek resolves this issue with customized automated migrations (CAM). A CAM combines the benefits of automation with the benefit of customer specific customizations which are usually only available through manual migrations. By providing the best of both worlds, Datatek’s CAM services can offer your business cost effective, low-risk, and customizable migration solutions.
