The continuous cycle of change to business processes, the need for business process consolidation, as well as business mergers and acquisitions are just some of the reasons why the migration and consolidation of data may be required. Data migration activities are often perceived as disruptive and a threat to data availability. Many data migration projects do not meet timelines and generate cost overruns.

This presentation provides guidance in hopes of providing good practices that properly define customer expectations, minimize risk and provide for appropriate planning and data integrity. It will identify and address some of the most common misconceptions:

  • We can fix the data after we migrate it to the target system
  • We do not need a separate project for the data migration activities in this implementation
  • We need perfect data for the migration
  • We have no data quality problems in our legacy systems
  • We do not need a migration methodology
