Migration retains the look and feel and program runtime behavior of the application

In general, software migration (re-hosting) is the process of moving from one operating environment to another.  In its purest form, software migration targets functional equivalence.  That is, although the operating system, the database, the file system, utilities and third-party tools have been replaced, the application continues to behave as it did in the source environment.  This is sometimes referred to as a like-for-like migration.

In general, software migration (re-hosting) is the process of moving from one operating environment to another.  In its purest form, software migration targets functional equivalence.  That is, although the operating system, the database, the file system, utilities and third-party tools have been replaced, the application continues to behave as it did in the source environment.  This is sometimes referred to as a like-for-like migration. The usual goal of such a migration is so that the migrated application can be aligned more closely to current and future business needs through the addition of new functionality to the transformed application. Migration can also include the substitution or re implementation of programming or domain specific languages.  However, in these cases a one to one relationship between the old code and the migrated code is retained.

For example, moving from an HP 3000 Server to Redhat Linux Server would usually be considered a migration because it involves making sure that program logic does not require changing and taking steps to ensure that current applications continue to work in the new environment. Migration, in our sense of the word, would usually involve moving to new hardware and software so that the application becomes cloud compatible.
