Sepago has released the newest version of its Profile Migrator software. The software has been enhanced to permit the transfer of locally stored user profiles and data into roaming profiles during the migration.

Existing domains can be modified or reassigned. "Profile Migrator is the bridge into the cloud, as the transfer of the user data safeguards the productivity of enterprises when they outsource and reorganize their IT. At the same time, this ensures the acceptance of the new technology among the staff as they find their familiar settings in the new environment and can accomplish their tasks without any problems", according to Sepago CEO Paul Lütke Wissing.

In addition to the ability to migrate to Windows 7, available in the previous version, Profile Migrator’s new "cloud mode" can transform user settings and data from client systems to terminal server and VDI environments. The transfer of the user profiles within a network helps enterprises that want to centralize the user data away from the end-user device into the data center. The option to modify or reassign domains is a requirement for company mergers, among other scenarios.

The software migrates user profiles for arbitrary Windows-based applications from the operating systems Microsoft Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows XP onwards on clients and servers. The program can be executed via the GUI or automated in script mode, which permits integration into software deployment suites such as Microsoft SCCM. Common applications, such as Microsoft Office, can be migrated immediately with the ACS files provided by Sepago. In this context, Profile Migrator supports the upgrade from Office XP to the newest Office version 2010; the switch of operating system or platform from 32 to 64 bits can be carried out simultaneously.
