Checklist for a Snowflake Migration

Sandeep Arora has a checklist for us:

We have broken our Snowflake Migration Checklist into nine phases to help plan and execute an end-to-end migration of the existing traditional data platform to Snowflake. These phases will help align migration resources and efforts; however, this doesn’t necessarily mean that all steps should be executed sequentially. Some phases, like “Train Users,” can be executed parallel to other phases.

At a high level, the process isn’t Snowflake-specific—really, 6 of the 9 steps are generic supporting steps which would apply to any major project. This makes the checklist not only a good starting point for a Snowflake migration, but also any major migration project.
