Best Practices for System Upgrades and Migrations

On-Demand Until November 11, 2022

Duration:60 minutes


Whether it's hardware, operating systems, or access control devices, so many security systems become outdated and less effective, in part because the upgrade or migration process can be so daunting. Sometimes when you don’t know where to start, it’s just easier not to. With proper planning and assessment, system upgrades and migrations can lead to a powerful and valuable business intelligence tool.

In this webinar, we will walk participants through best practices. From understanding what you have to prioritize, where to start, and whom to involve in the process, we will lay out the best practices and a process for successful system upgrades and migrations. We will also discuss what factors impact price, how to best secure a budget, and what kinds of data can be used from an optimized system.

Participants will be able to:
  • Understand the role of audits and pre-planning
  • Identify the appropriate internal team for a system upgrade or migration
  • Develop an upgrade strategy
  • Evaluate their current system and address any needed design changes
