Optimizing Data Migration Projects

Migrating data from legacy systems to new platforms can be essential to helping an organization continue succeeding at its mission. It’s a high stakes endeavor, however, and the margin for error extremely slim. For this reason, it’s prudent to know exactly what kinds of challenges and decisions you’ll be facing before you get started.

In this guide, we explore the most essential strategic and technical issues involved in data migration, and share a variety of insights and recommendations based on our experience helping organizations. In seven chapters, you’ll learn:

  • The problem with “big bang” migrations — and ways to chart a better migration course
  • Potential blind spots and pitfalls in data migration, and how to avoid them
  • How to use metadata and process automation to improve migration speed and results

If you’re seeking to optimize the results of your next data migration, this guide will help you get started.
