Your Cloud migration journey

While every migration is different, your journey to Cloud will involve a few phases. Here’s an overview of what’s involved at each step.



At the start of your journey, you’ll assess your requirements, and decide when Cloud migration is right for you. This is also where you’ll analyze your current landscape, and start assembling your migration team.

As your plan takes shape, you can start preparing your site and users for migration to Cloud. At this stage, you may need to upgrade your self-managed product to a supported version, and clean up your data and users so it’s ready to migrate.

Have a solid plan in place? You’re ready to start testing. This is an important step to ensure your production migration goes smoothly. At this point, it’s a good idea to prepare any training materials your teams might need to help them get used to life in Cloud.

Once your testing is complete, choose the date for production migration. You’ll want to schedule your migration when your team is less likely to need access to your self-managed products.
