The initial planning will provide understanding of the project requirements; its scope as well as collection of necessary data.

The end deliverables would not be in accordance with the client’s objectives and their expectations from the project. Therefore, planning should be done with great Neelatech to ensure that the information transmission takes place effectively from one level to another.
2. Pre-Migration checks:
This step involves the assessment and analysis of current server state before the actual migration takes place. In this stage, data is migrated to the test environment and the outcomes are noted. If there are any issues during the transfer then those problems are rectified and sorted out in a timely manner to ensure that when the actual transfer commences there would be no loss of information.
At this stage, the actual migration takes place to the new server. The process takes place in the production environment where the changes are made on the live domain. Whatever changes made at this stage would be visible to the end users.
4. Post Migration:
At the post-migration stage, the data is removed from the old server. At this stage, clean up works take place and everything from the old server is wiped out.
5. User Acceptance Testing (UAT):
Once data migration works are completed, standard checks are carried out to ensure good data integrity. Client can assess if their objectives and expectations are met and communicate their feedback to the team for any minor adjustments to be done where needed.
