pilot conversion

Contributor(s): Ivy Wigmore

A pilot conversion is a hardware or software migration method that involves rolling out the new system to a small group of users for testing and evaluation.

During the pilot implementation, the test group users can provide valuable feedback on the system to make the eventual rollout to all users go more smoothly. Once the test group has approved the system, it can be rolled out across the organization. The testers can then help train other employees for the new system.

On the other hand, the test group could determine that the system is not a viable option for the organization.

Alternatives to pilot conversions include:

  • Big bang adoption, which involves complete and simultaneous implementation of the new system across an organization.
  • Phased adoption, which involves rolling out the new system incrementally.
  • Parallel adoption, which involves running both old and new systems simultaneously until implementation of the new system is considered to be complete and successful.
