  13. 13. This is the bulk of your migration – the planning, reorganization, and transformation of your legacy SharePoint environment 9/22/2010 13
  14. 14. What is migration? • Microsoft defines migration as three separate activities: Move Migrate Upgrade • Use the procedures for • Use the procedures for • Use the procedures for moving a farm or migrating a farm or upgrading a farm or components when you components when you components when you are changing to different are changing to a are changing to a hardware. For example, different platform or different version of use these procedures if operating system. For Office SharePoint Server you move to computers example, use these 2007. that have faster procedures if you processors or larger hard change from Microsoft disks. SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008. • The reality is that a single migration may include all three concepts Migration strategy slides courtesy of (14) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC.

  16. 16. 11 strategies you should consider as part of your migration planning 1. Understand the as-is and to-be environments 2. Conduct proper capacity planning 3. Understand the customizations on your source system 4. Understand the migration schedule 5. Plan for the right kind of migration 6. Plan for file shares 7. Plan for tagging, metadata, and taxonomy 8. Understand centrally managed and decentralized environments 9. Stage your platform for migration 10. Decide where and when to involve the users 11. Determine that your migration is successful Migration strategy slides courtesy of (16) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  17. 17. Strategy #1: Understand as-is and to-be environments A migration is an extensive business analyst activity • Prior to any system redesign, understand your environment goals and purpose: • What works • What doesn’t work • What are the organizational “must have” requirements • What are the “nice to have” features • Based on these requirements, you need to model out the “to be” environment Migration strategy slides courtesy of (17) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  18. 18. Strategy #1: Understand as-is and to-be environments • Migration is about transforming your existing system to meet operational needs. • It’s as much about retooling current sites and content as it is about deploying new technology. • Don’t just tear down and rebuild if there’s something to be saved. Understand what you have to work with, have a vision for what it should look like, and move the pieces that should be moved. Migration strategy slides courtesy of (18) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  19. 19. Strategy #2: Conduct proper capacity planning • Understand your current environment: • Number of users • Number of sites • Number of site collections • Database size • Geographical needs of your organization (how many sites, what are their usage patterns) • Line of business application integration Migration strategy slides courtesy of (19) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  20. 20. Strategy #2: Conduct proper capacity planning • Think about your future needs: • User growth • Estimates on site creation • Estimates on database growth • Security and Search needs Migration strategy slides courtesy of (20) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  21. 21. Strategy #2: Conduct proper capacity planning • Map out your: • Hardware • Topology • Performance requirements • Security requirements • Scalability • Disaster recovery • Business continuity Migration strategy slides courtesy of (21) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  22. 22. Strategy #3: Understand the customizations on your source system • What kinds of customizations are on your source system? • UI design • Web parts • Workflows • Line of business applications • 3rd party tools • Custom features • Site definitions • Field types • Custom SharePoint solutions • Any changes to the file system on your SharePoint servers • Pre-Upgrade Check provides some of the analysis • How many of those customizations are outside of the SharePoint framework? • Are there any customizations which can be replaced by out-of-the-box functionality? Migration strategy slides courtesy of (22) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  23. 23. Strategy #4: Understand the migration schedule • What are the business drivers, not just the technology drivers? • Cost • Time • Resources/People • Do you have a defined project methodology? • How long per phase, what is moved, what are the priorities? • The schedule should be defined only after you understand the future state, set priorities, and get management buy-in. • In short, what is the scope? Migration strategy slides courtesy of (23) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  24. 24. Strategy #5: Plan for the right kind of migration • Does the migration plan include content, sites, metadata, and/or solutions? • Each one brings with it a set of requirements and decisions • What is the end goal? Is it a straight dump of everything, and you’ll clean up later, or do you need to restructure? • Is your strategy the same for various organizations, different site collections, or farms? Migration strategy slides courtesy of (24) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  25. 25. Strategy #6: Plan for file shares • Most file shares have become a dumping ground. • Is the plan to move as-is and decommission old systems, or is this a clean up process? • Are users driving, or is it an administrative effort? • Are you planning to apply metadata and taxonomy? Migration strategy slides courtesy of (25) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  26. 26. Strategy #6: Plan for file shares • Understand what is out there • Who owns the content? • Does it need to be moved? • Does it need to be indexed/searchable? • Is the folder structure important? • Do you need to maintain historic metadata? Migration strategy slides courtesy of (26) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  27. 27. Strategy #7: Plan for tagging, metadata, and taxonomy Common Migraines • Ad-hoc content migration leads to junk in portal • Legacy content gets migrated slowly, if at all • Inconsistent taxonomy across farms and site collections • People author locally - multiplies problems globally • Authors don’t apply metadata= “shotgun” approach to search OR Authors apply metadata without common classification = better search, but worse authoring experience • Portal lacks high fidelity search • User can’t find the right content • As a result, poor portal adoption and low user satisfaction Migration strategy slides courtesy of (27) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  28. 28. Strategy #7: Plan for tagging, metadata, and taxonomy • What is your broader strategy Managed for tagging, metadata and Metadata taxonomy? Service • Map out your high level taxonomy (web applications and site collections) and Term schemas (Content Types) Stores • Understand the as-is and to- be, and how it relates to your metadata Improved Governance Migration strategy slides courtesy of (28) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  29. 29. Strategy #8: Understand centrally managed and decentralized environments CENTRALIZED DECENTRALIZED • PROS • PROS • Improves consistency • Requires no planning • Reduces metadata duplication • Requires little upfront effort • Easy to update • Works across site collections and • Easy to support and train on portals • Allows document-level DIP, • CONS Workflow, Information Policies, and • Decreases consistency document templates • Increases metadata duplication • CONS • Hard to update • Requires planning • Hard to support and train on • Requires upfront work • Only allows list-level Workflow, • Hard to manage across site Information Policies and document collections and portals templates • Difficult to reverse Migration strategy slides courtesy of (29) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  30. 30. Strategy #8: Understand centrally managed and decentralized environments • Use of services greatly improves concerns over the decentralized model: • Services can be centrally managed • Sites and Site Collections can consume these services, within certain boundaries • You still need to understand the administrative impacts • You need to clearly define roles / service owners • Define your governance model / change control board Migration strategy slides courtesy of (30) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  31. 31. Strategy #9: Stage your platform for migration • Understanding your requirements: • Hardware / software • Network • Virtual environments • Hosting / datacenter • Downtime / end user impacts • Communication • Location of your teams • Backup/recovery • Coordinate your planning with the operations team (31) Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010 Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved.
  32. 32. Strategy #10: Decide where and when to involve users • This is the most fluid of the strategic considerations, as it really just depends • At a high-level, end users who participate in the creation of a system are more likely to accept / support that system once deployed • Where end users should be involved: • Creation of use cases • Creation of as-is documentation • Prioritization of requirements for to-be environment • They know their content – let them drive • File share migrations, or organization • Taxonomy development • Metadata assignment • Signoff on overall project plan Migration strategy slides courtesy of (32) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
  33. 33. Strategy #11: Define what success looks like • Possible success metrics: • Target number of end users migrated • Target number of sites migrated • Databases migrated • File shares migrated and decommissioned • 2010 live, users able to manually migrate their content Migration strategy slides courtesy of (33) Copyright 2010 © Knowledge Management Associates, LLC. All rights reserved. Twitter hashtag: #kmasp2010
