The contributed Migrate Plus and Migrate Upgrade modules are commonly used to aid in the process of performing a Drupal-to-Drupal migration. The combination of the two makes it easier to customize the configuration of individual migrations on a per-project basis by allowing you to edit each individual migrations configuration using the same mechanics that you would to write a custom migration.
