Recognize When to Commit to Migrating

Your system sends up certain red flags when its performance has degraded. These signals might include missing your maintenance windows, users complaining about slow system response times, or unreasonably high system maintenance fees. Perhaps your customers are saying the application needs modernization, but the programming backlog is six (6) months and growing. How do you solve these problems? Replace your legacy PICK system! This article will share the best practices that Rocket U2 has learned through years of experience.

You might be hesitant to undertake a migration. Are you worried about the cost or afraid to commit the time? How can you know how long a migration might take? You might be comparing the amount of suffering your current system is causing versus the pain you might experience while migrating to a new system. You are not alone. Many in the legacy Pick community are facing these pains and questions. Read on to learn about the steps in the migration process, and to get some tips that will help you along the way.
