Most teams take an Agile approach to day-to-day engineering, but for migration projects this strategy goes out the window. In this talk, Ben Ellerby explores how a focus on Minimum Viable Migrations allows assumptions to be tested faster, increased team focus and better value to customers.
Most tech teams will take an Agile approach to launching new products and services. Starting with a Minimal Viable Product (MVP), and releasing iteratively — gathering feedback, testing assumptions and delivering value to customers more rapidly. For migration projects though, this often goes out the window. With teams looking for a “big bang” release once the new system reaches feature parity (an equivalent set of features and functionaries) with the existing system. Instead, a focus on Minimum Viable Migrations (MVMs) allows assumptions to be tested faster, teams to be focused and value to be delivered to customers more rapidly.
