Migrating to Office 2010 or Office 2013 can be a challenge if you don't plan the migration carefully. This would also be the best to to review your document models and make changes before migrating. Learn from professionals that are involved with document handling. Ask questions so you know what to look for once you hire your people to migrate. Don't make the same mistake and lock yourself into a single point of programming.

The scramble is on! Office 2010 Migration

I'll cut to the chase and offer you some advice as well as many services. 

Start your migration here. 

  1. Learn how to determine what actual version of Microsoft Office created your document.
  2. Review how you handle your document. Maybe a rebuild is in order instead of a migration.
  3. Ask yourself if this document could be improved upon.
  4. Be very careful of temporary staffing agency offers to do the complete job. Some handle job placement using the revolving door policy. Find one that has a track record with Office products or find a consultant to overlook the process. Just like you would hire an Architect and a Contractor to build your home you need to have all the right people in place from the start.

I am compiling a list qualified people to promote directly.
I am not interested in Temporary employment agencies asking for the list.
I will help professionals reach business owners that are in need of support.

The plan for consultants and independent professionals like me is to pool resources so small businesses are offered the best in class service and support as our major corporations are seeing.

Business Owners and Archivial Companies

When the national archives wrote to me 15 years ago asking for assistance and suggestions on converting LS120 data to newer standards I was the supplier of the hardware design for their migration. I also assisted in the SQL tablet structure modifications from an proprietary database that the creator offered no assistance with. It took weeks of VB programming but in the end we successfully migrated a codebase data structure to a finely tuned SQL server. 

You might have 2 or 3 documents created in Office XP that need to be upgraded to Office 2010. At times it's as easy as changing header details and securing the document so the Office Protection in 2010 converts everything smoothly. 

You also might have VB code offered by a programmer that is no longer around. That will start the reverse engineering processes we know takes time. 

In the end I want you to have all your documents back in your control. 
If April 2014 is your target date due to support ending for Office 2003 and older versions then it's best to review your current documents and take a look at the wide range of alternative solutions. 

You might find an open standard is your best bet if costs are involved or you might find building from the ground up will speed things along.

Contact me for additional information.

If you would like to be on the list of professionals send me your contact information. I'll send you the VPN and Virtual Desktop with your Office XP document that needs to be converted. It's easy for those that know.
