Looking for a Data Migration Checklist.
I'm new to QA and I am trying to implement new QA methodologies into a growing company (under 40 people). One of the reoccurring problems we face are errors in moving an application from development to testing to production. Is there a best practice migration checklist that I can give to the tech team so they don't keep making the same mistake time after time.
Re: Looking for a Data Migration Checklist.
I know this sounds trite, but every system has a different set of issues. The key goal is not that you prevent errors per se: you prevent the same errors from happening again. Therefore, as you do your migrations, record the steps, correcting the instructions as you go. Over time you should have a reference guide full of top-notch instructions that prevent most of the common mistakes people make when migrating from one platform to another.
