A Five-step Methodology for Application Migrations
Our proven methodology helps organizations migrate applications during a data center relocation. The strategy uses a best-practices approach to efficiently coordinate the following phases of a move: the prerequisite stage, mock migration, failover testing, implementation and go-live, and project closeout. Using this approach to coordinate an application migration allows teams to efficiently build a solid application strategy; validate the strategy through testing; and go-live with minimal business interruption, a minimized project cost, and an optimal result.
In addition to a proven strategy to migrate applications, our team uses a hybrid-agile project management methodology. A PMI-Waterfall model for upfront planning ensures appropriate processes for a sound governance framework, a fixed scheduled timeline, a detailed charter, and budget controls and metrics. At the same time, an iterative agile approach to execution facilitates organizational transparency, continuous reflection, a flexible schedule and overall team empowerment. With sound processes to organize and maximize team efforts, this methodology ensures important application migrations are implemented as efficiently as possible.
