Requirements Gathering

An important step in migration planning is assessing the requirements of your SD Elements instance. During the initial deployment ongoing maintenance of SD Elements, modifications may have been made to the instance that should be catalogued and considered for the migration. See below for a list of areas where these modifications may have been applied.

This may not be a complete list. We highly recommend consulting all teams and employees that have maintained your VM instances before finalizing your requirements and migration plan.
