A government organisation was faced with the challenge of migrating its Windows Management platform from SCCM (System Centre Configuration Manager) to Ansible Automation Platform. The objective was to leverage Ansible for managing, patching, and automating configurations across the Windows server fleet, thereby replacing the existing responsibilities of SCCM.
INDEX identified the need for technical expertise in Active Directory and Windows OS, to facilitate the pre-migration and post-migration tasks within the Windows environment.
By leveraging our expertise in Active Directory, Group Policies, and SCCM deployment and packaging, we played a pivotal role in ensuring a smooth transition from SCCM to Ansible Automation Platform. Our technical consulting services and expertise of Windows security patching, WSUS administration, and basic networking skills would be crucial in maintaining the integrity and security of the Windows server fleet.
While cloud experience was considered beneficial, it was not mandatory for the role. However, familiarity with Ansible Automation Platform was highly regarded, as it would enable the consultant to effectively utilise the platform’s capabilities during the migration process.
The Client’s migration project to shift their Windows Management platform from SCCM to Ansible Automation Platform presented a unique set of challenges. By engaging the Index Technical Consulting services, and leveraging our expertise in Active Directory, Group Policies, SCCM, and Windows server management, we ensured a successful migration.
With our assistance, the Automation and Efficiency team expected to streamline operations, enhance efficiency, and automate configurations across the Windows server fleet using Ansible Automation Platform. Through this migration, the Client was able to optimise their Windows management processes, ultimately improving the overall performance and security of their IT infrastructure.
