Many IT projects require some sort of content migration, but we often find that many customers give scant attention to migration planning. It's almost always considered an activity that can wait until the end.
We recommend that you make Content Migration a part of your overall project and start planning for it from the very outset. This will allow you analyze your content and make improvements to overall content quality. You will also have better chance of keeping your project on track and avoid any major cost or schedule overruns.
In our recent advisory briefing, Start Your Content Migration Planning Early, we lay out what migration activities you need to plan or execute at each stage in a project, from team selection to piloting.
For more about content migration, you should also check out our earlier advisory, A Guide to Successful Content Migration in conjunction with this one.
