Adaptiva OneSite™ Now Automatically Converts Altiris™ Content, Caches, and Clients to SCCM, Eliminates Months from Migration Projects

SEATTLE, WA – September 6, 2016 — Adaptiva, the market leader in smart scaling systems management, today announced enhancements to Adaptiva OneSite™ that dramatically streamline migrations from the Symantec Client Management Suite (powered by Altiris™ technology) to Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). Enterprises using Altiris™ that want to migrate to the market-leading SCCM face obstacles of complexity, time, and possible disruption to business operations. OneSite reduces deployment timeframes with automated workflows that eliminate the months of manual effort typically required for a migration from Altiris™-to-SCCM. OneSite supports parallel operation and staged cutovers to ensure that business operations continue uninterrupted on all Windows client and server systems worldwide.

“We have seen a large increase in the number of Altiris™ customers who have come to us looking for a way to accelerate the conversion to SCCM,” said Deepak Kumar, CTO and founder of Adaptiva. “Now we make it easy for them to make that move while still preserving the years of effort that have gone into refining their Altiris™ environment. We have automated every step of the process – from migrating an enterprises’ entire applications catalog and all their cached content to installing SCCM and uninstalling Altiris. With OneSite an enterprise can now complete the switch over from Altiris to SCCM in less than 24 hours.”

OneSite automates the five most challenging aspects of migrating a large enterprise organization with 10,000+ endpoints from Altiris™ to SCCM, including:

  • Reading the Altiris™ database and converting all software releases automatically into SCCM applications, saving administrators from months of tedious effort to recreate them.
  • Migrating all remote cached content on Altiris™ package servers into each facility’s OneSite Virtual Storage Area Network (SAN), boosting performance and protecting the WAN by eliminating the need to re-download content.
  • Converting the Altiris™ client-cached content to SCCM content, preserving any locally cached data on clients.
  • Installing the SCCM client on Windows systems enterprise-wide for parallel operation during transition to ensure that no disruption occurs.
  • Uninstalling the Altiris™ client in stages as Altiris™ is carefully decommissioned.

The solution is available now for companies looking to expedite the migration to SCCM. Interested Altiris customers can also request a demo from Adaptiva to see the solution in action.
