Defining a Test and Migration Strategy for Workflow Processes
Before implementing new workflow processes, you must verify them in a test environment. Testing new processes verifies that the process you release into the production environment properly executes and does not cause conflicts with your existing workflow processes.
The following are some suggestions for setting up your test and migration policy:
- Make sure your test environment and production environment have identical versions of the software and that you are using realistic data in your database by using a partial or complete copy of the production database.
- Create a small group of workflow processes to implement as a first phase of implementation. After you have successfully implemented the first group, you can add more processes in a systematic manner.
