Gen Upgrades


There's no such thing as "one size fits all"

All upgrades begin with an assessment where information about the client's environment, dependent software, volume of changes, criticality of applications, key stakeholders and a number of other relevant information required to tailor the activities and effort necessary to the upgrade are gathered.

The output are comprehensive reports and a schedule of activities, helping our client to understand the risks, effort and activities involved as well as identifying the specific issues that might be encountered in the process.

Most of our clients choose to rely on Facet's experience to deliver the entire upgrade outcome whilst others choose to execute their upgrades leveraging our technical oversight and advice..

Upgrade timeframes

Each upgrade is assessed on your specific circumstances, so timeframes can vary substantially.

Whilst a Gen upgrade is an occasional event for most Clients, for us it is something we do regularly, and have done successfully many many times. Rest assured that Facet thrives in delivering the best cost effective Gen Upgrade possible to each and every client.
