With our web application migration service, minimising risk is our primary focus, to ensure businesses remain online. Data is moved passively in the background to ensure that any corruption or loss of data is of no risk to live services.

Application migration involves moving web applications from one online environment to another. Web applications are client server software apps that require a web browser. These can be moved from on-premises servers to a Cloud platform, or from one Cloud platform to another.

The process of standing up applications and data on the destination environment also takes place in the background enabling live services to continue without interruption. Thorough testing is required out before moving into the re-launch phase of any web application migration project. DNS is carefully managed to ensure a quick switchover ensuring that we deliver on our other main focus – minimising downtime.

Generally, there are 5 phases to the web application migration work we deliver: architecting the destination environment, preparing the data for transfer, the migration process, testing and go-live.

During the architecture stage, we will look at the types of applications to be migrated and your business requirements and restraints, to design the right solution within the destination environment. The data will then need to be prepared. Roots or administrative access will need to be granted by the client and files and databases will need to be backed up.

We look to match the configuration on the source and destination environments for a smooth migration of web applications. Files and databases can then be copied to the new environment, where thorough testing will then be required before the go-live takes place.
