Becoming A Cloud Company
On Sept. 17, the former staff of UBM Channel celebrated the founding of The Channel Company. With more than 150 employees and six office locations across the U.S., UBM Channel had been bought out by management from parent company UBM and was now an independent entity.
The Channel Company then embarked on an ambitious project to move off former parent company UBM's IT infrastructure and migrate virtually all of its systems to the cloud. After an intense discovery phase that reviewed more than 150 client systems and several shared servers and network infrastructure, the project -- led by solution provider GreenPages -- moved into the migration phase. Here are five milestones from The Channel Company's cloud conversion. For an in-depth look at this migration project, check out Monday's CRN tablet app exclusive.
