Welcome to the Application Migration 3.0 documentation space. Here we describe all aspects of configuring and using Application Migration. Here's a quick overview of what the Application Migration documentation pages will tell you.

Introducing Application Migration 3.0

A brief overview of Application Migration.

Implementing Application Migration
  • PreparationApplication Migration is implemented as an application that runs on the Tachyon 5.0 platform, which includes SLA and 1E Catalog components. The Tachyon 5.0 platform must be installed before installing Application Migration. Refer to Implementing Tachyon for more details.
  • RequirementsA list of all the platforms supported by Application Migration and the software required to allow Application Migration to be installed and work correctly.
  • InstallationHow to install Application Migration either interactively or from the command-line. This page also shows how to install the Task Sequence Tools.
  • Upgrading Application MigrationHow to upgrade Application Migration and Task Sequence tools in various scenarios.
Using Application Migration

You can use the Application Migration pages to manage the migration of applications from one system, or one version of a system to another.

  • Getting started with Application MigrationAn outline of the steps you need to take after installing Application Migration to get you migrating applications through your OS Deployment Task Sequences.
  • Application Migration rolesRole-Based Access Control (RBAC) is a new feature in Tachyon platform 5.0 to enable administrators to control which Tachyon applications, tasks and data are accessible to specific users. This page outlines the roles associated with using and managing Application Migration and how they are configured.
  • Getting data into Application MigrationApplication Migration pulls inventory data from Configuration Manager using the System Center Configuration Manager Connector in Tachyon. This page explains how to set up the Configuration Manager Connector, perform a data synchronization on-demand and schedule synchronization. 
  • Using the Installations pageThe Installations page is the main Application Migration page where you can view which applications are installed in your environment, how frequently they're used, and if rules to migrate them have been defined. On this list you can also create and modify migration rules and exclude applications that you're not interested in.
  • Managing migration rulesMigration rules are used to define what happens to previously installed applications during an OS deployment. These rules can include usage criteria, allowing you to choose to only install previously installed applications if they were being used, or perhaps replace a rarely used application with a less costly alternative.
  • Managing product exclusionsProducts can be excluded from consideration by Application Migration, helping you to focus on the important products and minimizing effort during the Application Migration workflow.
  • Previewing post-OS migration application statesBefore deploying the OS Deployment Task Sequence, you can preview the effect that Application Migration will have on the software installed on a device. This can be for existing or new build devices. This is done from Preview Device, where you can see the following menu items:
  • Role Based Application SetsA Role Based Application Set defines a set of applications that should be installed on a computer for a user performing a particular role, or perhaps working at a particular location.
  • Setting the application installation sequenceIn some cases, when some applications are installed together they need to be installed in a certain order. You can do this in Application Migration by adding the applications that have specific installation order constraints to the Application installation sequence.
  • Using Application Migration in a task sequenceThe actual process of migrating applications is performed during an OS deployment task sequence in Configuration Manager.
