Migrating from one softwaretool to another can be a painstaking process for human resources. From a business point of view, the choice is often made to prefer retyping (as a practice) above datamigration. Beside doing day to day tasks the resources are buried with retyping lot’s of info. No need to say that this can result in faulty, non consistent data.
ImplemIT can support you in this migration, at first we look into the workprocesses and the tasks the people fullfill in the current softwaretool. Like this we can more easily inderstand the data that is behind. With this info we look in the “new” software together with their productexperts. Having all this info gathered we can start preparing the datamigration.The migrated data is consistent and more important the human resources can do what they do best!
In 2011 ImplemIT has assisted a local middle-sized business in migrating their complete ERP system. In this particular case an added value was created in datacompletion and consistency checks prior to migration.
datamigration From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Data migration is the process of transferring data between storage types, formats, or computer systems. Data migration is usually performed programmatically to achieve an automated migration, freeing up human resources from tedious tasks. It is required when organizations or individuals change computer systems or upgrade to new systems, or when systems merge (such as when the organizations that use them undergo a merger or takeover).
To achieve an effective data migration procedure, data on the old system is mapped to the new system providing a design for data extraction and data loading. The design relates old data formats to the new system’s formats and requirements. Programmatic data migration may involve many phases but it minimally includes data extraction where data is read from the old system and data loading where data is written to the new system.
