Organizations often face the challenges of migration from legacy systems to new target systems. Such migration efforts represent a complex engineering problem. This paper describes migration planning, identifies influencing factors, outlines a set of migration planning activities and offers a set of guidelines for the migration planning. Many organizations face the problem of having to modernize their existing software systems by migrating to more capable systems. Modernizing legacy software systems is a complex engineering problem that includes most aspects of traditional software development with more constraints.
