IIBA Orange County Dinner Celebration

Lift and Shift projects – A Roadmap for Success!

Presented by Erika Cilengir, Technical Product Manager, Veterinary Centers of America, and Yvonne Meier-Hull, Director, Product Management, Beachbody

Member Early Bird Pricing ends November 26th- Register now! 

To keep up with the latest technology trends and innovations, companies often embark on what they euphemistically refer to as a Lift and Shift project, re-implementing a system or a website on a new technology stack. Management frequently brushes off the complexity of such projects with comments such as “oh, we are just redesigning our current functionality” or “no need for requirements because we already know what we have and how it works.” However, taking such a cavalier attitude towards Lift and Shift projects is a recipe for disaster. In this presentation, we explore the following in the context of two real-life Lift and Shift projects:

  • Identifying the common pitfalls of a Lift and Shift project
  • Addressing the critical components of success – solid requirements and a plan for data migration
  • Beginning with the current state and pain points
  • Writing requirements for a Lift and Shift project
  • Considering acceptable shortcuts
  • Making the case to management

Key Point: The complexity of Lift and Shift projects is often overlooked to the detriment of such projects.
