In addition to the above, the following tests are also executed as part of the entire Migration activity performed by Levarus.
Backward Compatibility Verification
Data Migration Testing Strategy
Creating the test strategy for data migration includes a set of activities to be executed and some aspects to be considered. This is to reduce the errors and risks that occur as a result of the data migration and to run the testing efficiently.
Activities in this Testing
Forming the team
Create the testing team with the members having the needed knowledge & experience
Analysis the risk
Current BAU life should not be hampered after migration and hence carry out ‘Risk Analysis’ meetings involving the right stakeholders and identify the risks and the implementable mitigation.
Data Migration scope analysis
Find the clear scope of the migration test as to when and what needs to be tested.
Identify the Test Environment for Migration
Identify separate environments for Pre and Post Migration environments to carry out any verification
Migration Test Specification Document and review
Prepare Migration Test Specification document which clearly describes the areas of testing, testing methods (manual, automated), Number of cycles of testing, test approach, testing methodology (white box testing technique, black box), the approach of creating data and using live data etc.
Run the test cases one by one and capture the results.
Report the result
Capture the test results, prepare the report and release the system for usage.
