Software migration is the practice of transferring data, accounts, and functionality from one operating environment to another. It could also refer to times when users are migrating the same software from one piece of computer hardware to another, or changing both software and hardware simultaneously. Software migration is a generic term that can refer to either a sort of transfer for applications, operating systems, databases, networks, content management systems (CMS), or even an entire IT infrastructure.
Migrating from one piece of software to another can be hard enough for an individual. For a large team or an entire company, it’s an IT nightmare. Because so many things can go wrong in such a long process, it’s important to plan out and follow any software migration carefully.
This article will cover the different types of systems you might want to migrate, the challenges of migration, methods, and solutions, a checklist for planning your own software migration, and some tools to help you perform it. We’ll also offer templates for different spreadsheets and project management tools that can help you map out the entire process and keep everyone accountable for its success.
