However, that was a long time ago. Altiris is now the Symantec Client Management Suite (powered by Altiris™ technology). While it still holds a solid customer base, ConfigMgr (SCCM) dominates the systems management market.

By some counts, SCCM has over 75% of the market. SCCM has gone far away in this comparison, and I would say there is no comparison. System management is just a subset of SCCM’s capabilities. SCCM is a full-fledged “Device Management” solution.

Some enhanced technology can make SCCM much more accessible and faster to deploy. For example, SCCM requires an extensive server infrastructure, whereas modern peer-to-peer technologies can eliminate that need. Also, better network delivery protocols are available now than BITS.

  • However, the most significant challenges for Altiris migration can only be met with customized automation.
  • Adaptiva has enhanced its OneSite product with new technology to improve Altiris migrations. Most importantly, it can automatically migrate content, database entries, etc., from Altiris to SCCM.
  • It reads the Altiris database and converts all software releases automatically into SCCM applications. This eliminates the months that could otherwise be spent re-creating these in SCCM.

Adaptiva How to Migrate from Altiris to SCCM ConfigMgr?

Although Adaptiva has excellent technology for safely and quickly moving data over the network, OneSite offers a far better solution to Altiris migrations. It converts all the remote content into SCCM content.

Suppose your headquarters are in Paris and your office is in Santiago, Chile. All the Altiris content is staged on a package server, so you don’t need to re-deliver it from Paris to Santiago.

  • Instead, OneSite will convert the content already located in Santiago into SCCM and store it in Santiago’s high-availability peer-to-peer Virtual SAN. Now imagine that instead of one remote site, you have hundreds or thousands, and you can see how months or years of migration can be accomplished in just minutes.
  • Because the OneSite client can operate even when the SCCM client is not yet installed, OneSite can easily install the SCCM client and uninstall the Altiris client—worldwide. You can do this in sequence or run all of them in parallel until you are ready to decommission Altiris. OneSite makes it easy to stage and stagger this migration.
