Data Migration

What is Data Migration?

Data Migration is the movement of data between storage types, formats, or software systems and 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, freeing up human resources from tedious tasks. This however is rarely the case and migration specialists are an intrinsic part of the process when it is business or time critical.

The Importance of data in migration

Data migration is a rare opportunity to get to grips with one of your most important business assets. If 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 the migration with inaccuracies eroding its value. Today’s business environment requires a single customer view backed up by reliable and real-time reporting and 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)

This breadth of experience means we see many potential issues before they become actual problems. This will save you time money and pain. CCR can 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 we are a data cleansing company we totally understand the intricacies of the cleaning process adding depth to our solution.

 

How we approach it?

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.
