OR we can say that moving data from one version to another version.Migration involves moving to new hardware and new software.
In business process, One can migrate data from one kind of database to another kind of database. Then it requires data conversion into some common data format that can be output from the old database and input into the new database.
These are the steps of Odoo/OpenERP Migration
1.) Understanding the existing system→ In Odoo/OpenERP migration, the first step is to understand the work of the business process, and how can we interact and transfer the data with each other. when we know the work of the system, then we can move to the next step.

Field mapping→ Field mapping is the process to create data element between two different data models.Field Mapping provides data transformation or data mediation between a data source and a destination that means it provides a data values from the format of a source data system into the data format of a destination data system.
Field mapping is a process in which all the data is mapped to the a new integrated components.Field mapping shows how data maps from one information system another information system.
5.)
