Data Migration

What is Data Migration?

Data Migration is the movement of data between storage types, formats, or software systems.

Data Migration should be a key consideration for any system implementation, upgrade or consolidation.

In an ideal world it would be performed programmatically to achieve an automated migration. The fact is that migration specialists are an essential part of the process when it is business or time critical.

The Importance of data in migration

At CCR we know that data migration is a rare opportunity.

It’s a chance to get to grips with one of your most important business assets. When it is done properly, it will allow you to better manage your data and to use it to its full potential.

Data should drive the solution.

Poor quality data can be a barrier to migration, with inaccuracies eroding its value. Today’s business environment requires a single customer view backed up by reliable reporting. Therefore quality data is key in saving and making money.

Research shows that more than 50% of data migration projects run late and/or over budget.

The most common reason cited is that of “poor quality data(2011 Bloor Research)

 

Why CCR?

We have been moving data since we started in 1996 and it has always been an integral part of our data cleansing and data enrichment.

We’ve been involved in literally hundreds of data migration projects – from a simple lift and shift of 1,000 records to a full integration of multiple data sets with millions of records.

This breadth of experience means we see many potential issues before they become actual problems. CCR will save you time, money and pain, because we manage the whole lifecycle seamlessly with minimal disruption to your business.

We have vast experience of all known systems but the majority of our work now comes from Salesforce, cloud applications, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics and Blackbaud Raisers Edge (Not for Profit).

As a data cleansing company we fully understand the intricacies of the cleaning process, adding depth to our solutions.

 

How we approach Data Migration

Migration should be scoped with the initial brief and budgeted for identifying what technology is required, as this will reduce developer work and allow for the correct resources to be allocated.

We run all migrations by a strict protocol based on PDM2 (“Practical Data Migration 2”), our own data experience and commerciality.
