What is the best approach for a cross-forest SharePoint migration? #M365AMA

In this episode, the #M365AMA panel discusses the following community question:

“I have a cross forest migration to perform. It’s a little complex though in that I need to leave the source AD in tact while also migrating everything to the destination forest. Long story short, it’s a company split. The problem is that the source is Server 2016 and the destination is 2019. ADMT seems a bit risky. Can anyone suggest a guide or a commercial software that will handle this scenario? Thanks.”
