Coexistence between two clouds is a key factor for a successful migration project, as it ensures a smooth and seamless transition for the users and the organization. Cloudiway is a leading provider of cloud migration and coexistence solutions, that can help you achieve your migration goals with ease and confidence. For this reason, Acxiom approached Cloudiway and determined that its innovative technology would be determinant for the rest of the project,before envisaging to merge the two companies and perform a large scale migration.
Cloudiway implemented a smooth and transparent freebusy coexistence for all the users of the organization within a few hours.
