Best practices for Cyclos data migration
Data migration is the process of moving data from your Cyclos 4 Communities to Cyclos 4 PRO. While this might seem pretty straightforward, it involves the correct preparation and configuration of your Cyclos 4 PRO and a change in storage and database or application.
Unfortunately, there is no magic button to migrate your Cyclos 4 Communities configuration and data to Cyclos 4 PRO. You need well-established, seamless processes to migrate and protect the integrity of your data. Here are some best practices to keep in mind:
Back up the data before executing.
Stick to the migration strategy and process.
Test, test, test.
The migration of software can be frustrating and time-consuming, so prepare for that reality and stick to the plan or you can end up finding that your Cyclos 4 PRO is functioning below expectations.
