Welcome to the Application Migration 8.0 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

A brief overview of Application Migration.

Implementing Application Migration
  • Design ConsiderationsInformation that will help you design and plan the implementation of Application Migration in your organization.
  • RequirementsApplication Migration is implemented as an application that runs on the Tachyon Platform 8.0, which includes SLA and 1E Catalog components. Please refer to Tachyon Platform 8.0 - Implementing Tachyon Platform  for more details.
  • InstallationInteractive installation of Application Migration using Tachyon Setup, with screenshots.
  • Post-install configurationSteps to configure Tachyon after installation of Application Migration. 
  • 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.
  • Using the Installations pageOn the Installations page you can view installed applications in your environment, see how frequently they're used, and whether migration rules exist. You can also create and modify migration rules and exclude applications 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 Install Sequence for applicationsIn 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 applications that have specific installation order constraints to the Install Sequence.
  • Using Application Migration in a task sequenceThe actual process of migrating applications is performed during an OS deployment task sequence in Configuration Manager.
