SMNX104 LMS Migration Case Study: Open Source to an Open Can of Worms
1:15 PM - 2:00 PM Wednesday, October 23
Expo Hall: Management Xchange Stage
Even though opening a can of worms is better than kicking a bag of snakes or a hornet's nest, we nearly sank the ship chasing all of our worms! Join us as we dive into the mucky waters and wade through the deep mud of LMS migrations with this case study. As a SaaS provider, not only did we need to find a solution that worked for our team and our existing clients, but we also needed to have a solution that baited new clients as well. It wasn't easy!
In this session, we will open a tacklebox of tips that will help prepare you for your own platform migration. We'll cast a net out over the selection and migration process so that you don't feel like a fish out of water when it comes time to cast your own line. You'll prep your lures and outline your expedition plans during the session. We'll guide you through each step— you won't get swamped with the details. We'll have a whale of a time sharing our lessons learned. Come hear our tale of the Big Catch that almost wasn't!
In this session, you will learn:
- The steps our team took to conduct a needs analysis for a platform migration
- Questions we asked (and didn't) when working with vendors
- Insights on the negotiation process
- The steps we took in data migration and how data was impacted
- How our team handled client concerns and frustrations throughout the migration
- How we took an out-of-the box solution and made it our own
