Migrations are frequently the largest single cost within any legacy system to newer build project. It is also the single greatest point of failure in any project, with 38% of all failed projects failing during the migration phase. Though 2/3rds of all Fortune 500 companies are engaging in some form of system migration at any time, 70 – 90% of all migration efforts will overrun the originally forecasted time or budget.
So how to you decide which approach is right for your business model? How do you ensure that your migration is properly budgeted, analyzed in detail for complexity and scope, tracks all data loss between systems, and is validated properly? What tools could potentially expedite the migration process for your project?
North Studio Handles Migration Expertly
There are two primary approaches to modern migration projects, regardless of infrastructure. The Big Bang Migration approach is usually carried out over a weekend with planned downtime to replace a legacy system with a targeted replacement system. The advantages of this method include a lower overall cost of the yearly IT budget, and significantly more condensed time period of project execution. This, in turn, will condense your adaption period, timeline, and delivery schedule, thus reducing the chances of domino-effect migration failures that are caught in later phases and require restarting the migration process. Disadvantages of this method include increased risk of data loss and less testing time which makes testing processes mission critical to the overall success of the entire project.
Phased Migrations is the alternative to the Big Bang migration approach. This is most common in companies that are exploring legacy system migration from an existing Enterprise-level system infrastructure to either open-source based frameworks or complex integrations or separations with proprietary tools. The advantages include less expensive migrations in any given business quarter, extended testing and validation timeline for data loss analysis, and limiting system adaption to smaller business units in a phased approach, thus limiting the possibility of system rejection by internal stakeholders.
We have a variety of options available for both planning and executing your system migration projects. This can include projects with complexities that include movement between databases models, languages, and storage capabilities.
Our Virtual CIO package allows you a comprehensive Discovery phase with several experts in your specific system configuration and providing you guidance that will significantly lower the risk of a failed migration effort and identify potential points of failure prior to execution. In addition, customized project packages are available that can include extended Discovery and pre-migration data analysis to ensure that your migration is properly planned, executed, and tracked.
