Migrating Nintex Forms and Workflows

How to Approach a Migration with Nintex?

Migrating from SharePoint Server to Office 365 can be complex because the underlying SharePoint platforms behave differently, though our migration tech partners provide tools that make this easy to achieve.

Before a migration, perform an inventory of what processes you have that should be migrated. Run the Know Your Workflow script to gather as much information as possible to help make smart transition decisions. Once you’ve decided which workflows to move, prepare them by either replacing actions that are more compatible for Office 365 or assessing the benefits of rebuilding the process from scratch in order to take maximum advantage of Office 365’s platform functions. Remember, there’s no wrong way to build a workflow, but there are more efficient ways for that workflow to run depending on the platform and functionality available.

Choosing a Nintex Migration Partner

Not every process – including those requiring high security – should be migrated. The more security required for a process, the less Office 365 should be considered – at least the public cloud version. We suggest you do your research before deciding – due diligence is better than hindsight.When converting your Nintex workflows from one platform to another, the best approach is to evaluate the current workflow design. You can achieve 80 percent success for most workflows with the support of a Nintex tech partner product to convert the design for you.  The below Nintex technology partners provide products that can assist you in performing a migration with Nintex Workflows and forms.
