1. Pre-Migration Planning
During the planning stage, our team will evaluate your existing data, applications, and IT infrastructure. Following an in-depth analysis of both source and target systems, we will plan the migration according to your budgets, timelines, and operation schedules. For example, many small businesses prefer non-business hours or public holidays while others want to migrate without shutting down their existing systems.
2. Assessment and Backup
We assess your data and applications in terms of quality, anomalies, or any possible duplications using sophisticated software tools. We can also perform a full-scale cleanup if your system warrants it. However, before we do so, we back up all your digital assets to our data servers to eliminate the risk of loss.
3. Migration Process Design
Next, we employ different migration testing procedures to determine your acceptance criteria and team capabilities. Your dedicated project manager will take charge of this project and work with your IT team and business analysts to create a personalized process design.
4. Execution & Validation
Once we have a working plan, we’ll execute the migration. This process includes extraction, transformation, and reconfiguration, and its duration depends on your data and application volume. This period is critical, thus, we’ll be all hands on deck monitoring and validating the process to check for failures or disruptions.
5. Decommissioning & Monitoring
Once your new system is ready, we will decommission the old one upon your approval. During this period, we’ll also train your IT and non-IT staff to use the new system. However, our job doesn’t end there. We’ll continuously monitor performance and offer 24/7/365 technical support.
