This customer sought to divest a part of their business without impacting active projects and services. They quickly found an interested buyer for the business unit, but were not ready to transition software systems due to security and IP integrity reasons. The pharmacy organization requested that the buyer not have access to software applications that supported the portion of the business being sold.

The organization asked 4th Source to make data migration as smooth as possible with minimal oversight so that they could focus on other projects. They wanted to make sure there was no interruption to current operations.

Taking a Digital Strong Approach

4th Source created and supported an environment to migrate current data as well as extract data from the new environment needed for the divestiture. 24/7 help desk services were established to support the project.
