XLR provided consultancy resource and systems for a server and database migration. With a heavily utilised database, the project had to be carefully timed, allowing only minimum downtime. The existing operating system and databased had both been “end-of-lifed” and were no longer supported. However, the heavily bespoke system was very customised to the company operations. As they handled consumer response from newspaper cuttings and also TV show responses, they had little opportunity for downtime.
XLR successfully managed the project with no perceptible notice to staff, except the vastly increased speed of the new system.
