What about my anonymousIds from Segment?

We’ve got you covered. Just run the SDKs in parallel and RudderStack will automatically (yes, automatically) grab the Segment anonymousId and send it in our payload, so you won’t have any data inconsistency or interruption in downstream tools. When migration is complete, just remove the Segment SDK.
