    A Data Migration is the movement of data from a source to target system.
    Data Migration is usually required as a result of the introduction of a new business system – whether through a system consolidation, an application upgrade, a new data warehousing solution, or a company merger.
    Data Migrations are often seen by companies as a necessary evil of large-scale, expensive IT Projects. As a result, it can be easy to focus on the more attractive aspects of such projects - the front-end system - whilst underestimating the size and complexity of actually getting data in there.

    A Successful Data Migration will:

    • Result in a seamless migration process – users of the new system/application will not worry about the data, but instead be able to enjoy the benefits of the system upgrade
    • Ensure complete transparency through thorough system and unit testing, as well as reporting and validation
    • Integrate data from multiple sources, across structured and unstructured data types for completeness
    • Maintain and even improve data quality and integrity
    • Not delay other aspects of the Programme
    • Minimize downtime for the users within the business
    • Minimize remedial fixes
