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

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 might 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.

Transformix Migration Steps are:

  • Assessment
  • Proof of Concept
  • Planning
  • Engineering
  • Migration
  • Testing
  • Validation
  • Deployment

  Migration Tools

In general, software migration (re-hosting) is the process of moving from one operating environment to another. 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.

During migrations it is usually necessary to migrate data from one kind of database to another.

The goal of a migration is typically to achieve functional equivalence on the new platform.

Transformix uses software tools to perform migrations.
