After describing the migration path environments for different customers, I thought it might be time to define some migration paths and their associated environments. This a migration environment pattern I have, usually, seen in small organizations. The definition for each environment is in the table below.
|Development (DEV)||The Development environment is used for developing the application and the submission of baseline code to the source control system.|
|Quality Assurance (QA):||The Quality Assurance environment is used for testing of configuration, performance, application processes, and functionality validation.|
|Production (PROD)||The production environment is the final release environment, where the system will begin its Initial Operating Capability (IOC).|
