Applications must comply with current infrastructure standards within a 24-month window depending on their migration assignment. All changes to support this must be made 6 months prior to move. Freeze on all application changes 1 month prior to move. Applications planned for the first migration wave must be running on the calendar ’09’ software standards for infrastructure and middleware. All hardware that is at or near to End of Life (EOL) will be replaced before move.
