Migration is the process of moving from one computing system to another.

For example Migration can be:

Please note that in a typical scenario, automated/manual migration happen from source to staging & then automated migration to production.

A good automation tool I can recommend is Sharegate. Spending for automation tool is worth if the no-tool cost is higher than tool-cost.
