One of the most difficult projects that faces an Information Technology (IT) department is the consolidation of two or more Data Centers. Often the scope of such a project is tremendous and crosses many boundaries of expertise. Lack of planning, extended time frames and budget overruns challenge many mainframe consolidations.

Quite often, the merger/consolidation will involve several products from multiple vendors. As experienced systems integrators, BCI can quickly assess the existing infrastructure, and identify the "surviving" hardware/software to meet the defined business goals. Once the survivors are selected, BCI can assist with the conversion/migration.
