My Wintel Infrastructure Transitioning Experience

Although I have done many transitions on Intel and Windows Infrastructures in Domestic Market in India, this time I was a part of a very strong transitioning team to transition an International Infrastructure project. I was in AZ, USA in last November and stayed there for about a month for knowledge transfer and documentation of the current state of infrastructure and used a sequential process centric transitioning to enable customers to experience the benefit of off-shoring.
