Level: Intermediate to Advanced
This course will provide you with a framework for large-scale migration initiatives across the enterprise. It is based on best practices born from decades of experience moving legacy systems onto modern platforms, with techniques that support five core objectives:
- Focus on user communities to educate stakeholders and entice their interest in a modern platform. Community focus begins by conducting interactive workshops to demonstrate legacy migration use cases and stimulate discussion of the value of data science and business intelligence.
- Careful examination of the legacy code and applications and the user communities they support.
- Identification and accommodation of business objectives and constraints by providing multiple alternatives to migrate.
- Ensure the successful migrations of user communities through change management and technical support.
- Acknowledge that your migration effort is not operating in a vacuum. We often must coordinate and collaborate with parallel initiatives in data migration and governance.
This framework provides a business-sensitive approach to migration by explicitly acknowledging business risks and constraints, and it provides techniques to meet each core objective.
