Delivering Successful Automated Conversion & Migration Solutions
— Not Empty Promises

For over 30 years, Datatek has been helping businesses improve their IT systems by providing cost-effective, low risk, automated solutions for platform, database, and programming language migrations. Our focus has always been to find ways for companies to retain the large investments they have made over the years in their IT operations. Part of that focus, is to offer alternatives beyond the “all or nothing” migration approach that many vendors tend to take. Datatek’s goal is to always offer a solution which makes the best business sense for the customer in terms of cost, time, practicality, and risk.
