Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

SAN RAMON, Calif., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- When planning an office move or expansion, one area that requires extensive attention to detail is the company's Information Technology (IT) infrastructure. The stress of moving computers, servers, network and telecommunications equipment can be reduced if the move is strategically managed. A well-orchestrated move will minimize downtime and business disruption.

Clare Computer Solutions, a San Francisco Bay Area network support and IT consulting services provider, has completed numerous moves for businesses and offers four tips for a successful IT infrastructure move.

Plan Your IT Move in Advance

Plan the IT-move project to the new office 60 to 90 days in advance. Remember some communications services have long lead times. Evaluate all the options and be aware that it may be cost-effective to stay with your current provider. 

Timing is Everything For Internet Access

Whether the company is switching providers or staying with its existing provider, time the process so that the new service will be available by the required move-in date.

Determine Technologies To Replace

Consider retiring and replacing old PCs, and retiring older servers and consolidating them into virtual servers to save space and money.  

Consider an IT Project Management Firm           

Hire a firm with IT Project Management experience to help you prepare and manage the overall project. Firms that have completed many moves know the pitfalls to avoid and shortcuts to streamline the process.
