Step 6: Deploy
The beta software is finished. It is now time to deploy the software. This step in our process is designed to make sure that everything is ready. Here are typical activities during this phase:
- Import any legacy business data into the new application.
- Install and configure the application server.
- Train administrative personnel on how to manage user accounts and security settings.
- If your application is hosted on RackSpace (included with our Maintenance and Support services), we may also need to register and set-up a domain name and test the new server configuration for security, performance and other items.
At this juncture in the project, your key personnel are already ‘experts’ on the new application, so end user training is rarely if ever necessary. But, if it is, we are ready to support you.
It is important not to underestimate the potential issues that can surface with migrating legacy business data to SQL Server. Many legacy systems do not adequately enforce data integrity, so missing records, partial records, invalid formats and duplicate records are common. A combination of automated and manual efforts may be required to clean up your existing business data.
