Migration is always a long process - and more often it's a much longer project than what is originally planned. The longer the migration takes, the greater impact it has on users' productivity and patience. Thorough planning and pre?]tested migration processes shorten this time, helping to perform the migration in a controlled and timely manner. Migration is also a costly process, often requiring hardware and software upgrades, specialized tools and training, and re?]education and acclimation of users. This paper aims to aid, at least in broad terms, in the migration process from start to completion.
