Planning a data center migration project is a balancing act between risk and reward.
It only takes one wrong move in a migration to cause an operational outage or disruption to normal business operations, but the right plan can help manage the risks. David-Kenneth Group’s Data Center Migration Planning Methodology organizes the planning process into 7 key objectives. It discusses some of the challenges with managing risk and recommendations to create a solid plan.
- Properly align your migration plans with your business requirements.
- An improper level of planning ill-equips an organization to successfully deal with scheduled and non-scheduled events, and it fails to identify execution gaps and mismatched assumptions.
