1st (big) System upgrade plan


New to this forum so be kind... currently working as an Applications Analyst and I've been handed my first big system upgrade.

We are upgrading a key system that a lot of our stakeholders use and I am the sole IT resource managing this, so just a little bit of responsibility - which is good just slightly daunting!

I'm just after some advice and guidance of things to bare in mind in regards to system/application upgrades.

We are also in the process building a new server stack where all our servers will be held on and will be building two new servers (app & db) solely for this application from scratch.

Instead of upgrading the current system on it's current server, we will start from scratch, installing the new version of the application and then do a data import from the current to the new interface.

Any guidance, advice and things to consider from you wise people? From the technical spec of things to UAT to dealing with the application provider.

Thanks (a lot) in advance.
