Planning to migrate WebSphere Commerce

Most businesses treat investments in technology updates and migrations as overhead expenses. Even though you might 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 one methodology would fit the requirements for all businesses. Best practices, however, can guide you through these migrations. The following items can affect 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.
