In a preliminary project, about 1 year before the actual move began, the current infrastructure was analyzed and the target infrastructure was designed. At the same time, the procedure for the move was planned and coordinated with all parties involved.
Network analyses, security concepts, capacities and sizing were topics that the BITS experts dealt with as well as finding the right contacts, organizing and coordinating the procedure.
Once the preliminary project had been completed and the procedure agreed, the actual move took place. This was organized and coordinated in several waves by several Move managers from BITS over a 2-year period.
In addition to the pure relocation, system adjustments were also planned and implemented in part to meet future requirements for security, risk minimization and scalability at the new location. At the same time, the processes for reordering, maintaining and adapting the systems were optimized, making them routine tasks.
BITS took on various IT roles during the implementation, from IT design and IT project management to commissioning at the new site.
