Migration strategy:

A parallel environment was created for Development, QA, Staging and Production. This enabled us to go- live and perform the parallel environment testing with high accuracy levels. This also gave the customer a high degree of confidence to go-live with the new environment. This included functionality, performance, and data accuracy. Monitoring was enabled and validated for different scenarios before the go-live activity.
