“Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink.”

-       The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Samuel Taylor Coleridge


All that fun, new, exciting technology out there, and you can’t use it? Is your path to the cloud, or to a converged infrastructure, blocked by recalcitrant applications? Like Coleridge’s ancient mariner, you can see it, but you can’t use it.


However, we know how to make it potable!


What to do? What to do? You’ve got applications blocking your way to new technology benefits. And you’re not really sure why they won’t migrate, but they won’t. And it’s likely you don’t have the tools or processes to easily and quickly figure out why. Furthermore, you might not have the expertise it takes to fix them, once you figure out why.


It takes specialized skills and tools to evaluate and analyse the applications and then determine the best way to migrate them. That’s HP’s expertise has developed from decades of experience in managing and migrating our own applications from nearly every IT technology every built.


Watch this informative video featuring HP modernization consultants Rick Truesdale and Sean O’Leary to learn more about HP’s approach to server-to-server migrations, including our approach to automation. See how you can remove your application roadblocks to a great technology future.
