Planning to migrate WebSphere Commerce

Most businesses treat investments in technology updates and migrations as overhead expenses. Even though you may need to upgrade or migrate to the latest WebSphere Commerce version to take advantage of the technological offering, providing a business justification to do so requires outlining the business benefits, strategy and migration plan.

Each business works with a unique set of requirements and challenges. As such, it is unlikely that there is a methodology that would fit the requirements for all businesses. However, there are a number of best practices which can guide you through these migrations. The following items can impact your migration:
  • The level of customization of your site.
  • The size of your WebSphere Commerce site.
  • The level of integration of WebSphere Commerce with third-party systems.
