Phased Migration Strategies & Extensive Migration
We help you migrate at a pace that’s right for you.
When the time comes for you to migrate, InControl will be there to help you plan your approach, and we’ll support you with an extensive migrations toolkit from Rockwell Automation. Whether you choose to migrate all at once or use our unique, phased approach to help minimize the costs, risks, and complexities involved with managing legacy products and systems, we have the tools and the experience to guide you through the process.
If you choose a phased migration plan, our methodology of modular automation coupled with backward compatibility allows you to maintain productivity as you upgrade portions of your automation system over time. The StepForward Program offers a comprehensive set of tools to facilitate this phased approach, including conversion and selection tools, as well as consultation, planning, and training services. This broad range of conversion enablers allows you to take a proactive approach to upgrading your systems before a product reaches Silver Series. By taking advantage of newer technology and prioritizing migration tasks in advance of product obsolescence, you ultimately increase their productivity and performance without putting your overall operation in jeopardy. The StepForward program allows you to:
Upgrade to modern platforms to extend and re-use existing platforms until it is no longer financially beneficial to do so. This program helps mitigate risk by reducing downtime, and ensures support is available.
Stay informed of the current lifecycle status of a product.
Evaluate performance advantages of new technology, as well as the risks of using older platforms, to calculate the ROI of modernization.
This program allows you to take a proactive approach to upgrading your systems at a pace that makes the most sense for your application and budget, by allowing you to prioritize migration tasks without putting your overall operation in jeopardy.
You’ll also choose the implementation that’s right for you, whether it’s a complete turnkey solution, a partnership with us and our network of solution providers, or whether you want to take on the migration yourself, with support from our extensive portfolio of programs and tools to guide you through the process.
