Every organization is on an MFT journey. Taking the first step from FTP to MFT usually follows a significant event or pressing project. Soon, you find you own several projectbased MFT products through departmental buying or acquisition. The next step on the journey is the move to an “operations” MFT, which focuses on consolidation and  modernization of all the point products for better control, delivery, and efficiencies of scale. Finally, an MFT Center of Excellence removes barriers, allowing your business to grow. The third stage is  implementing an MFT Center of Excellence that focuses on  supporting enterprise-level Service Level Agreements (SLA). 

This phase is usually driven by a best practices approach to governance, scalability and high availability requirements and regulatory compliance. Regardless of where you are on your MFT journey, a new set of change drivers are going to challenge your  current MFT solution.
