For this project, our client was a national provider of wireless, voice, and broadband services to business and residential customers.
Our client was under a tight deadline to replace a version of Connect:Enterprise that was to be sunset. With significant file transfer volume running in a production environment, the prospect of being on an unsupported version was not a risk the client was willing to accept. Additionally, the client wanted to upgrade to a managed file transfer solution that possessed exemplary monitoring, control, security, and audit / compliance / service level agreement support.
First, we provided an expert in Sterling File Gateway (SFG) who reviewed the current installation (the client had already installed SFG) and tuned the system for performance. Next, an overall data flow design was developed. When the flow was finalized, a plan was put in place to migrate the 450+ trading partners from Connect:Enterprise to Sterling File Gateway. Next the technical work was done – creating templates, PGP server install, configuration match with Sterling Secure Proxy and SFG, and testing. The final part of the project was training employees.
A successful migration of the partners from Connect:Enterprise to Sterling File Gateway!
