        The UNIX Migration Project Guide (UMPG) supplements the specific, technically focused guidance in UNIX migration solution guides by focusing on the "people and process" aspects of migration projects. The UMPG takes readers from inception through completion of a project involving the migration from UNIX to Windows of an application, database, or infrastructure. For each project phase, the guide advises on the issues to consider, actions to take, and deliverables to complete. Based on the experience of Microsoft and its customers, it is designed to prevent common causes of project failure, such as misalignment of IT and business goals, and inadequate management of project risk. The UMPG and the solution guides follow a parallel organization of "Plan, Build, and Deploy" and within these categories, sequential project phases, to facilitate their use as companion guides.
