Designing a Seamless Migration Strategy for Network Operators

Whitepaper Overview

Customer experience and quality of service play a vital role for subscribers today. More and more operators are working to fulfil these needs by introducing innovative new services. Digital transformation is essential to bring advanced and modern offerings to market. When transitioning to a modern next-gen platform, seamless migration is key. Migration, however, is often fraught with pitfalls and can post a host of challenges. Operators thus need a failproof migration strategy to ensure their existing services remain unaffected as they transfer data and business information from their legacy platform. This whitepaper is designed to help you build an impeccable migration strategy – one that ensures security, scalability, flexibility, availability, and cost-effectiveness.

Key Takeaways

Know the challenges to take into account when designing a migration strategy
Operators need to ensure that the high volumes of data are transferred within the short cutover window without any data loss. It is important to implement a data cleanse to transfer only relevant data. Further, sensitive data needs added protection. All of these issues, plus a host of other factors such as entity mapping, server impact, and more, need to be taken into account.

Learn about the different types of migration
Understand the differences between storage migration, application migration, database migration, and business process migration.

Understand the possible approaches before choosing which one is right for you
There’s no one-size-fits-all migration strategy. Depending on your network’s unique needs, you can choose from different approaches: either take the big bang approach, or opt for a phase-wise migration where legacy and new systems coexist for some time.

Identify and understand the factors to consider when designing a robust migration strategy
As you migrate from your legacy systems, there are several processes related to data, application, technology, and process to take into account.

Understand the five essential steps for migration
Following these steps will help you design a foolproof plan that helps prevent downtime, loss of data, compatibility issues, and revenue loss.

Know the best practices for a successful migration
From keeping the source database intact to staging implementation, here are some ways to ensure success.
