How much data does your company have? Your answer may be anywhere from an exact calculation of Terabytes, to an estimate with a count of files, or a simple, “I have no idea.” No matter the answer, at this point, there is no shortage of data, but now there are the challenges of how to manage and migrate data.
The challenge of migration might happen when there is a merger, a change in software or systems, or growth that results in the need for new solutions. Overall, IT often struggles with the challenge of moving data and ensuring that the data migration project goes smoothly and without causing too many bumps.
Here’s a potential scenario:
Your company purchases another company through an acquisition. To effectively manage customer relationships, the company data must be combined and aggregated to generate a full and accurate customer database, and this must happen without data becoming corrupted or slipping through the cracks. More importantly, data migration needs to happen rapidly, the project must stay within budget, and it needs to happen without fail.
How do you make this happen?
In general, IT departments know that their systems will change at some point and will be [somewhat] ready to make a move, however, they don’t always house the internal expertise and systems to make this happen as technology is constantly changing and this process isn’t something that happens everyday.
