Tranxition Releases SCCM Integration Guide

We released a fabulous integration guide for Tranxition Migration Manager to “snap into” Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (or SCCM).

Tranxition developed and used the guide over the years internally, but we recently published it for customers, IT Services, MSPs and SCCM experts.

Our tests showed that it should take no more than a few hours to leverage the staggering power of SCCM with the amazing results of Migration Manager.

PC Migration Software Leader

Tranxition has seen a large increase in customer wins. made steady progress competing against other solutions.   In the last three side-by-side customer tests, Tranxition either won the competition outright, or pushed an existing competitor solution out of the customer.   One recent evaluation by a manufacturer proved that their use of a competitor over more than three years produced no financial benefit. PC migration projects are too important to be architected with solutions that can’t deliver.

Test in Europe

Another recent test in Europe showed that Tranxition delivers unmatched price, performance, and reliability.  We estimate that our solution wins 90% of the comparisons.  When you transfer a Windows user profile, you want to make sure that the resulting system is not going to make problems for the end user.

Blazing Speed

The other key component of user persona migration is speed.  Tranxition is by far the fastest we’ve seen with respect to the time it takes from start to finish.  One of our editors recently tried to look at one of the competing solutions and it crashed when run with the default settings.

Migrate Apps?  Really?

PC migration competitors promote “migrating applications.  They know customers want to move applications if they can.  The problem is that this results in migrations sometimes lasting over a day.  Additionally, risk managers at large firms don’t want to move applications because they don’t know if all the applications are properly licensed.   The only way to migrate is to install corporate suites via image, and let the users download approved applications on their own from the company repository.

Evaluate the Leader

For over a decade companies around the world have appreciated the ease of adoption, use, and results of migration manager.   If you are planning for a better end result.  You need this product now.

You won’t regret it for a minute.

Tranxition Migration Manager 10.2 Released

I’m happy to announce that our minor release of Tranxition Migration Manager 10.2 has been released.

While it looks almost like the same product, there is a lot of work behind the scenes:

We’ve added a number of customer-requested minor bug fixes.   We’ve also added ODBC settings across all Operating Systems.  And on top of that, our content for Adobe Acrobat continues to improve.  We now support also SYSPREP -copyprofile users.

The most major change was requested by some of our medium sized organizations.  We now include global license management as an inherent part of Migration Manager.  So, for example, if a firm has offices in 20 cities globally, a single license key can cover the global utilization.  Even better, if the number of seats needs to increase to accommodate growth,  We can make that change back here in Oregon and additional seats are instantly available worldwide.

Even more cool, the model also supports subscription purchases, or a time based license.  We’ve had a number of customers over the years want to license for a year, or 18 months. The perpetual software model makes that problematic.  So with the new approach, even an extension to a subscription means a quick change at our site and its all good.

The next version of Migration Manager, 10.5, is going to have lots of changes that will be visible to users.   We’ll go into more detail in a few months, but we could not be more excited for that.   Included in 10.5 is new application support as well, so the best keeps getting better.

Anti-virus products help bolster Windows XP

This year, April brought us (in the Pacific Northwest, at any rate) not only showers, but Microsoft’s deadline for leaving anyone still running Windows XP unsupported and out in the cold and vulnerable to infection. For those who insist on sticking with XP,  it’s comforting to know that there are reliable anti-virus products on the market that can bolster up your security.  Look at the comparisons here.

Windows XP Migration Affecting PC Market Share

Demand for PCs is reported to be down for the second quarter of this year as compared to the same quarter for 2011 and 2012, according to estimates from both Gartner and IDC, in a Forbes Tech article posted today. The slow but continually steady growth of PC sales is attributed to a combination of factors; a demand for products in higher-end tablets and lower-end devices like Chromebooks, and the trend for Windows XP migration. We are experts in Windows migration, backup and restore. Migrate7, including full support for Windows 8.1.1, will be available at the end of Summer 2014, while the existing version of Migrate7 8.6 supports most of the features of Windows 8.1.1 already.
