Steps to a successful, disruption-free migration:

  1. Analyze your enterprise content
  2. Understand its business value, volume, and sharing behaviors
  3. Predict migration outcomes and timelines so you can plan accordingly
  4. Remediate file transfer errors and storage platform conflicts before they interrupt your migration project
  5. Sync, or create a “continuous copy” of, your new and existing storage platforms so there is no impact on business operations during the migration
  6. Train users in the new system with their live content. So they are fully prepared when it comes time to pull the plug on your old system
