CLOUD AND DATA PLATFORM GUIDES
Executive Guide to Confident Cloud Migrations
Conversations about your cloud strategy are probably the focus of many business meetings today. And if they’re not, they should be. You may ask, ‘Is everyone moving to the cloud?’ The answer is Yes!
With cloud migrations being a major investment and focus for many organizations, it’s important to have help from a company with the knowledge and capabilities to accelerate cloud plans with confidence. Pragmatic Works has helped many of our over 7,000 customers to implement successful cloud migrations. Our guide to cloud migration shares the lessons learned from our most successful clients and offers the information needed to make your cloud strategy a reality.
Keys to a Successful Data Platform Migration
Have you started your data platform migration yet? If not, you can be certain that your competitors have either already migrated, or will be soon. What are you waiting for? A modern data platform opens a wealth of opportunities for your organization.
Pragmatic Works has helped many of our over 7,000 clients with a successful data platform migration. Learn the keys needed to know to make your migration a success.
USPS ADDRESS VERIFICATION USING TASK FACTORY
You’ll probably agree that one of the most valuable assets to your company is your customer database. But do you know that bad data in your client addresses can cost you thousands of dollars each year? 4.7% of ecommerce address data is undeliverable as entered by customers and 35% is undeliverable due to undeliverable addresses. The average company loses $254 per 1,000 pieces of mail returned.
In our newest update, we’ve added USPS Address Verification. This is a transform that will allow you to connect and accept data from the USPS database of addresses. In addition, you have the option of purchasing a subscription to the USPS database itself. Using Task Factory, there are 3 simple steps to verify and de-duplicate your address database.
NEW SOFTWARE RELEASE 2017.3
At Pragmatic Works, we are constantly working to enhance and update our software to make it even better. A common question from customers and developers is, when are you going to be compliant with SQL Server 2017? Well—the time is now! All our software is now compliant with SQL Server 2017!
