Ensuring Outcomes with Migration Testing
Application migration alone is a challenge and just as with developing and maintaining applications, testing is a critical element to ensuring you get the desired outcomes without disruption.
Migration and testing are both very specialized, functional disciplines that demand resources with the appropriate experience, specialization skills, and tools. Syntel’s migration testing team is multi-skilled with migration-skilled resources and specialized career testers working together, leveraging the power of both our testing and migration centers of excellence to manage challenges effectively. We also perform migration testing for projects migrated in-house or by other service providers.
For example, many applications have a myriad of system configurations that stem from things like ongoing development and critical maintenance releases. Syntel takes a proactive approach to address this with a clear milestone-based code merge and split that allows ongoing product development to progress alongside the migration process. By planning the required overhead, risks of version incompatibilities are mitigated without any serious issues or impact on the progress.
Schema mapping is managed through the introduction of intermediate target databases, which helps analyze issues with schema mapping and also ensures target databases do not have data integrity issues.
To ensure adequate exception handling, the Syntel process has numerous checkpoints that help identify issues, root causes, and areas of inadequate exception handling.
