Often when completing a migration project, you’re having your organisation straddle between two systems. You’re fighting habits and changing attitudes while also attempting to complete a high-risk operation.
Every software team at one stage in their career will have to complete a migration.

- Resilience - Methods of mitigating risk across legacy systems and outdated assets
- Observability - Ways of tracking potential blindspots without overwhelming cross-functional teams
