Upgrade your upgrade

How we do it:

After selecting a consulting package, we begin with an analysis of your current environment and agree on a timeline, including any necessary downtime for the cutover. Based on this, we develop an upgrade strategy. Red9 will then provide a detailed project plan to ensure your team is aligned with expectations. We set up the new environment following best practices, test it thoroughly, and compare its performance with the old environment to ensure optimal results.

How we do it better:

Red9 goes above and beyond to minimize risk for our customers. We provide detailed project plans with code for each step, careful timing, and rollback scripts to ensure a smooth process. Our meticulous post-upgrade testing guarantees the best results, comparing your old and new environments to identify and eliminate errors. With Red9, your team can rest easy knowing every detail is covered.
