I know there are two ways to migrate from previous versions of WPS/WLE to BPM 8 as mentioned in this document
1. Artifact Migration
2. Runtime Migration
In Artifact Migration, we create a new target environment of BPM 8.0, migrate the source code and deploy the migrated source code in new target environment. This new target environment uses new databases and if you have any existing running processes, then you have to run two parallel environments (source and target).
In runtime migration, we migrate the existing source profiles to target environment and also upgrade the existing database instead of creating the new database. In this case we get all our running instances in our target environment as well.
Now I have some special requirement. Is it possible that we first do the artifact migration and then migrate the existing data from our source environment to the new target environment database so that after artifact migration I also have all my running as well as completed instances in my target environment as well. Just to clarify that I want to do Artifact migration with existing data. I don't want to migrate the source profiles to target environment.
Please let me know how can I do this.

Re: Migration Strategy2012-08-01T13:39:57Z in response to hqjrFeels like what you want to do is to clone your existing Process Center and upgrade that in place, but leave the old one running so that you still have a 7.X Process Center while you check the new 8.0 Process center. So just do that. Clone your process center, make sure the clone is working, then do an inplace upgrade of the clone...

Re: Migration Strategy2012-10-05T22:52:25Z in response to hqjrNot sure exactly what you mean by you want to migrate the existing data. But if I understand correctly you current have a running profile for WPS x.x and want to migrate it to BPM 8.0. The strategy that I would use is a run time migration, in that way you automatically migrate the existing data and profiles from older version of WPS to BPM 8.0. If you are running BPM 7.5.1, then BPM 8.0 allows you to run it on a compatibility mode for the artefacts that are migrated from BPM 7.5. Then you can do a source code migration of the artifacts from the client tools (IID/PD) and deploy the artifacts in BPM 8.0.
Currently, we are also migrating from BPM 7.5 to BPM 8 and using the runtime migration strategy.
