Post Data Migration Checklist

This guide is for customers who have purchased data migration services from Bromcom.

Your Role

Bromcom provides a full testing service to ensure that the target data is successfully migrated from your source system, including a full test migration. You do not need to check every part of the system after the test migration.

However, you should familiarise yourself with the data in the test system and, if you do find any issues, report these to your deployment manager to enable us to resolve these quickly.

Scope of Migration

The Data Migration Scope Document outlines the data that is included in the data migration.

All Data Migration Scope Documents can be found here.

Ensure you have located and familiarised yourself with the relevant scope document so that you can refer back to it later on, if you have any queries.

Basic checks

The video and checklist below suggest some basic checks for customers to carry out after you receive your test system.

This is by no means an exhaustive list.
