Asysco’s first remote Go-Live

October 21, 2020

We are proud to announce that, last weekend, we conducted our first (Unisys A-Series) mainframe migration go-live during the pandemic, for a US-based utility company.

Up until now, we have successfully completed remote assessments. Now we can also add a remote go-live to our credentials.

After SARS-COV-2 hit the world, Asysco, like many others, needed to switch to a remote execution model for all the ongoing migration projects. We found that, with minimal adjustments, projects could be run remotely without real incremental risk or operational impact even though there is somewhat of an efficiency impact.

Since then, we have performed multiple, successful assessments and as of last weekend, our first successful remote go-live is now also complete. The go-live was conducted over a weekend, using 3 teams: the customer team (also almost entirely working remotely), the Asysco go-live team centralized in a single UK location adopting the customer’s time zone and a factory Asysco team based in NL using the CET time zone to add an extra 6 hours to the day in case it was needed to sort out any potential go-live issues.

This proves that not even SARS-COV-2 can keep us from helping our customers and our methodology is not just rock-solid, but also pandemic proof!
