In recent years, system modernization has received much attention within the Department of Defense (DoD). Typically, that attention has focused on the technical and acquisition issues associated with the new system. Less attention has been paid to the equally important issue of planning the migration from the old system to the new system. This technical note reports on the early results of an approach that is currently being piloted to support software migration planning. This approach focuses on deriving actionable mini-plans for focus areas that are identified in an initial increment of an overall migration plan.
