Strategic Approach to UiPath Migration


  1. Infrastructure Level Migration

  • Prepare the Environment: Ensure compatibility of hardware and software with the new UiPath version. Back up your Orchestrator database and configuration files.

  • Install the New Version: Download and install the latest UiPath Orchestrator. Migrate your database and consult UiPath documentation for guidance.

  • Configure Settings: Update Orchestrator settings, including user roles and permissions. Migrate asset configurations, queues, and jobs.

  • Upgrade Robot and Studio: Replace old versions with the latest ones, updating environment variables and credentials.

  • Testing and Validation: Conduct thorough testing, including running automation processes to ensure everything functions correctly.

  • Deployment: After successful testing, deploy in the production environment and monitor closely for smooth operations.

  1. Process Level Migration

  • Process Analysis: Review and adapt each automation process for compatibility with the new version.

  • Re-development: Update or redevelop parts of your automation to leverage new features, addressing any obsolete or deprecated functions.

  • Re-Validation: Validate each updated process in your testing environment, ensuring data integrity and security.

  • Documentation: Update process documentation to reflect changes made during migration.

Risk Mitigation in UiPath Migration

  • Implement a rollback plan for potential issues.

  • Schedule migration during off-peak hours to minimize disruption.

  • Conduct extensive testing and keep your team informed and prepared.

Governance Model for Successful Migration

  • Version Control: Maintain strict version control for all RPA assets.

  • Security Management: Adhere to updated security policies and best practices.

  • Compliance: Ensure RPA processes comply with relevant regulations during migration.

  • Monitoring and Reporting: Use monitoring tools to track automation performance and compliance.

Change Management: The Human Element
