As part of services engagement, we offer migration services from a customer's current systems.  These services include consulting with the customer's technical staff about the best way to migrate not only the customer's source code but also their entire SDLC to the GitLab platform.  We may implement the migration in a phased approach or a replacement approach depending on the customer's comfort level and desires around adoption.

This can include:
* Importing your projects from GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab.com, FogBugz and SVN into GitLab
* Migrating from SVN: Convert a SVN repository to Git and GitLab

In all cases, a GitLab Adoption Plan will be created with the customer to outline the goals of the migration and adoption, as well as any plans that involve customer or GitLab Professional Services actions.
