This is the second of seven articles bringing you through the most important and beneficial experiences we gained in out migration project that concluded May 2020. This article will outline the key learnings that we definitely would recommend you do in the test phase.
Digizuite is a major player in the global DAM market, providing powerful digital asset management solutions to businesses and organizations around the world.
Our software, Digizuite™, makes it easy to collaborate across departments, countries, and digital channels. Users can simply upload, edit, search, manage, distribute, and repurpose rich media content, such as images, videos, documents, and PDF files, across internal and external channels from one centralized source through automated and intelligent workflows.
Before we even started our test phase, we decided to do some spring cleaning leaving us with less data to migration and hopefully less chance of something breaking.
We did this but it was not a requirement. I might even recommend just waiting to do this at a later point as the amount of data makes no difference in the migration.
In coordination with the Atlassian Migration team we planned the test to be 4 weeks where we should make sure to map any changes in order to repeat when we go to production.
