SDU - SRO Data Utility

SDU upgrades and data migration

SRO’s Data Utility tool is proven to eliminate downtime and provide a pragmatic upgrade and migration process that permits your business to keep running, even while software is being updated. The SDU accommodates for an offline upgrade and data transfer process ensuring users can remain working on legacy systems until newer versions become fully operational.

Its built-in Production Outages functionality allows for considerable downtime reduction and elimination for typical production outages. The SDU will migrate changes to data from the current production into the targeted production system which has been reconfigured. This, combined with the SDU Merge facility, enables an organisation to merge together multiple versions of Maximo while simultaneously reducing downtime.

The SDU will ensure a seamless and painless process throughout your upgrade and migration cycles. The methodology captures the ability to reduce production outages, thus ensuring users remain operational and unaffected. The SDU is an IBM globally endorsed solution.
