What is Migration Strategy?
Migration Strategy describes an organization’s approach to changing from one technology solution to another, and includes their success criteria, critical contingencies, and plans for minimizing disruption. An effective migration strategy for Identity Management must take into account a myriad of factors for your organization, like system criticality, data integration, and more. A migration strategy might be designed to move from a legacy technology vendor to a new provider, or from an in-house platform to a SaaS provider. In any case, a migration strategy describes the approach, identifies potential challenges, and plans for exigencies.
An effective migration strategy will factor in your organization’s most critical systems and their tolerances for disruption, and factor those tolerances into account. It will include a communication strategy and an emergency communication strategy, as well as a rollback approach, to ensure that your critical business operations remain functional.
