Video for what could be migrated from OVSD to HPSM

Instead of discussing migration / reimplementation here, I did some tests with the latest migration tools 2.0, which supposed to be able migrate OVSD 5.1 to HPSM 7.1. The recorded video will tell you exactly what could be migrated smoothly without any problem, what could be half done, what will be failed (you need to consider reimplementation). Personally, it is necessary to watch the migration process before any comments. However, most of the people do not have the time to setup lab and evaluate it.

Overall, the service call, change, incident, attachment could be migrated pretty smoothly. CI, person, location, organization need some tuning.

It is more than 10M, no way I can upload here. If you do have interest to watch it, leave your email here and I will forward the link.

Upload to some webhosting site like RapidShare, MediaFire or similar so that anyone can download without asking for links.

Regarding "migration": while HP provides these tools and they are able to migrate some stuff it has these serious drawbacks:

1) Performance - on SM7 side it is possible to process 1-2 records per second at most. In case you have a large amount of objects to migrate the process can take several days. Imagine a failure here and there you'll end up with non-realistic schedule (not counting preparation, testing, etc.). You will have to stop SD while transferring the records but then what to use in the meantime?

2) Scope - while it is able to migrate some of the objects it is UNABLE to migrate any logic/customizations you have done in SD. Some organizations would be able to drop their old Servicecalls, Incidents, etc. migrating only CIs and Services. However any custom logic/notifications will not be migrated and need to be reanalyzed and reimplemented. This imposes significant expenditures.

3) Integrations - is sort of different view of point 2) Any integrations you currently have needs to be completely reanalyzed and redesigned. SM7 uses completely different ways to integrate with outside world. Combined with completely broken database model this does not easy the migration at all.

4) Functionality - at least for SD 4.5 the migration tools had severe issues with non-ASCII characters.

Make your own conclusion...

I agreed, HP is not doing great job in the migration tools, some of the pretty straightforward functions failed to run. However, with help from consulting on site or remotely, it is possible to do it in about 1~3 months, it really depends one your organization size and budget.

1. The closed servicecall/incident/change won't be moved over. You can run the scenario manually if you want to only part of them, i.e., only migrate CI/Change. The final move could take 1-2 days.

2. DB Rule/UI Rule/Email. If you can find qualified consultant who know both OVSD/HPSM, this could be done in a week or something.

3. You might spend most of the migration time to do custom code/mapping, however, you do not have to use a consultant to do it.

Re: Video for what could be migrated from OVSD to HPSM

Hi
and what are you doing with different functional logic in SD and SM. For example in SD we use Service calls, which can be classified like incidents, information requests and so on. IN SM you have to use interections which can not be customized (?) and incidents, so 2 objects.

Sent. However, if you dig into the connect-it senario, you will find out that any data is possible to move. However, even on the HP Software Universe, most of the cases presented said it did not worth the time to move, rather than spending more time/cost on the new tool.
