This guide is for customers who have purchased data migration services from Bromcom.
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.
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.
|Suggested area to check||Complete? Y/N|
|2||Students – check a percentage of students and their contact details, make sure priority 1 and medical details have transferred correctly|
|3||Check registers look correct – AM/PM|
|4||Check dinner balances|
|5||Census – run the latest Student and Staff Census in Bromcom and check they match|
|6||Check photos have come across for staff and students – anything over 200kb does not migrated! (SIMS/ RM schools only)|
|For secondary schools only|
|7||Period structure – this can be different between MIS systems|
|8||Student timetables – to ensure classes have come across and are populated|
|9||Cover module – check the right people are showing|
