Abstract: Collaborative services are essential for any experiment. They help to integrate global virtual communities by allowing to share and exchange relevant information among members. Typical examples are public and internal web pages, wikis, mailing list services, issue tracking systems, and services for meeting organizations and documents. After reviewing their collaborative services with respect to security, reliability, availability, and scalability, the Belle II collaboration decided in 2016 to migrate services and tools into the existing IT infrastructure at DESY. So far missing services were added and workflows adapted. As a new development, a membership management system which serves the needs of a global collaboration as of to-date with 968 scientists of more than 113 institutions in 25 countries all around the world, was put into operation in the beginning of 2018. Almost all essential service of a living collaboration were subject to modifications, some of them with major or complete changes. Moreover, an already productive collaboration had to give up accustomed systems and adopt to new ones with new look-and-feels and more restrictive security rules. In the contribution to CHEP2019 we will briefly review the planning and realization of the migration process and thoroughly discuss experiences which we gained while supporting the daily work of the Belle II collaboration.
