DATA TRANSFER HEALTH CHECK
Like any computer system, your managed file transfer solution needs to be kept well tuned in order to provide the best performance. Pro2col can assist you with this by carrying a solution health check. This is a thorough review of your environment, either remotely for individual servers, or on-site for more complex landscapes by our experienced file transfer professionals.
We have put together a resource for you opposite called ‘10 signs your managed file transfer solution needs a Health Check‘. This will help raise questions for your organisation’s current environment and with the GDPR deadline looming there is no better time to do a check.
A TYPICAL HEALTH CHECK INCLUDES
Software version check (includes end of support and sunset date reviews)
Production versus non-production check (ensuring workflows & folders are in the right environments)
Server specification review (resource utilisation
Backups and Continuity assessment
Database – size and fragmentation
Application security, including application access to shared folders
Analysis of workflow executions (by
timeof day, files transferred, result etc.)
Best practices on logging, housekeeping, archiving, automated folder cleaning
Monitoring of workflows & workflow definitions
Review of scripts
Correct selection of SSL protocols
User base, permissions, policies and reports
NEXT STEPS FOR YOUR FILE TRANSFER PROJECT
If your health check suggests your data transfer processes and software are not fit for purpose then a Needs Analysis is a must to identify your organisation’s needs.
Alternatively, if your environment just needs tweaking and upgrades the next step would be to set up support and maintenance to maintain your solution.
