Migrating to the Modern UX

Did you know there are many paths to migrate to Clarity’s Modern UX? These options range from one-and-done adoption to gradual transformations. Because the Modern UX and Classic can exist side-by-side, there are many ways to upgrade and get all the great new functionality without impacting your Classic use case. If you have been putting off taking advantage of the Modern UX, check out some of the migration options below. As Rego’s Strategic Advisor, Jacob Cancelliere, put it, “Right now, it’s not why would you go to the Modern UX? It’s why not?”

Understanding The Modern UX

Before evaluating migration approaches, it’s important to understand what the Modern UX is and what it isn’t. For instance, did you know that the Modern UX is available simultaneously with Classic? It was not designed to be a replacement. With the exceptions of timesheets, users can toggle between the two different experiences, which is great for different migration paths.

The Modern UX is also not just an updated look and feel for Classic; they are two distinct entities. When Broadcom designed the Modern UX, it was as a new PPM innovation. Not all features have been ported from one to the other. The Modern UX offers a host of great new functionality and features, especially since the release of Clarity 16.0. This includes functionality for leading industry trends such as product funding, Agile transformation, drawdown funding, lean Agile methodologies, and more. These capabilities will continue to increase as the Modern UX remains a primary focus for Broadcom’s R&D investment.

Migration Approaches

Big Bang Migration

A big bang migration involves shifting all modules to the Modern UX at once. This one-and-done approach can be great for simplifying to one user interface. It can also be coordinated with a rebranding. And the great news is, with the most recent releases of Clarity, a big bang migration has never been more attainable. This type of migration is most favored by organizations that are newer to Clarity or that do not have heavy configurations.

Soft Launch Migration

Because Classic and the Modern UX can exist side-by-side, there are many ways to take advantage of a soft launch migration. This type of migration can be done incrementally, in a phased approach, and is great for controlled change management and training. A soft launch migration can be based on user role, module, or group. This allows organizations choose the type of migration that fits best. It is truly a flexible way to migrate.

Planning for a Migration

With the flexibility of migration approaches in Clarity, there is no reason for organizations to miss out on the new functionality and features being added to Modern UX all the time. If you want to get more value out of Clarity investment, but have been hesitant because a migration seems overwhelming, Rego can help.
