The key to every upgrade or migration, no matter the application or process, is preparation. Proper preparation will eliminate complications once you are ready to flip the switch on your new deployment and avoid costly roll backs and downtime. It is also important to have experience in doing such a migration. If you don't have this experience on your staff, you should look to partner with a company that does. After you have finished your preparations you double check and then triple check them.
Keeping up to date with the latest version of Exchange is an important process, but it can be a daunting task, requiring extensive planning and careful implementation. Updating to a new version requires you to know the ins and outs of the new version and how it will interact with your existing environment. You also need to understand your existing Exchange environment and also how your users interact with it. Complications often arise during the implementation phase (If proper planning wasn’t done) and can cause issues as small as an inconvenience to large scale outages.
Example Local Exchange Migrations:

- Exchange 2007 to 2013 migration
- Exchange 2007 to 2016 migration
- Exchange 2010 to 2013 migration
