Migration Expertise - Tried and True
The IBM Migration Factory provides an innovative and integrated approach to migration that can enable true global delivery by helping plan and perform a migration based on our depth and breadth of resources. Learn more.
Recognizing that every data center migration project is different, IBM follows a five-step methodology designed to accommodate each client's particular requirements:
- Assessment and planning: To begin each engagement, IBM professionals examine the key infrastructure elements, databases, ISV applications and custom code to determine the testing requirements, select the appropriate methodology and prepare a detailed project plan.
- Migration: Baseline building and testing, user acceptance testing and application deployment can be completed in IBM facilities worldwide, at the client's location or in a combination of locations.
- Testing: Databases and applications are subjected to several mock migrations before going live in the production environment to help mitigate risk. Custom applications are rebuilt and tested rigorously.
- Performance and tuning: Prior to deployment, IBM professionals work with clients to optimize their applications for the new IBM environment.
- Training and deployment: After the new platforms are in place and proper operation has been verified — but before deployment to production — systems administrators and application developers receive training on the new environment.
