Data Migration challenges

This is a continuation of my previous blog on the Data Migration challenges / Data Migration Framework.

Data Migration Framework:

As a part of implementation, the legacy data has to be cleansed, profiled, and validated before it is migrated to SAP system to ensure quality of data as per SAP requirements. . This calls for a structured framework, robust methodology and investments in software/tools. 

The Data Migration framework and tool should help in removing the complex activity (of Data Migration) from the critical path of SAP Implementations:

• By involving the business users’ right during the initial phases of the project
• By advancing data migration activities to beginning of blue printing phase which are otherwise done during build phase.
• By giving insights to the implementation team in the mapping of AS IS and TO BE processes.
• By having robust data profiling reports
• By ensuring good filtering process thereby ensuring no bad data load into SAP.
• By having the best practices in built.

The Advantages of a robust framework are:

1. Removal of data migration from critical path.
2. Zero Data Loss
3. Maintain Data integrity and consistency
4. Reduce maintenance cost
5. High Enriched, optimized and cleansed data

      The tips you have provided in your blog over conducting a successful data migration and overcome the challenges are definitely useful and should help in preparing matrix that can be used to monitor the migration process.

      Can you also recommend some reliable migration tools ?
