Get started with your data migration

Why data migration is important

Data migration is the process of transferring data between storage types, formats, or computer systems. Completing a data migration should be top-of-mind when launching new systems, upgrades, data projects, and any business transformations like mergers, acquisitions, de-mergers, buyouts, and regulatory changes. Why? By consolidating your data, you create a holistic view of what your true database looks like, which gives you the opportunity to understand what gaps you currently have in your data.

When done right, users can access relevant, accurate data more easily, which will enhance customer insights, improve operational efficiency and compliance with regulations, give you confidence in your decision-making, and ultimately, grow your bottom-line.

Master your data migration

The secret to data migration success lies in planning and upfront data analysis. Having a strategy early on can help you avoid complexities and shave off unnecessary costs. For best results, your plan should involve a Pre-Migration Impact Assessment (PMIA). The PMIA is a method to help you identify the people, processes, and technology you need to get the most out of your migration efforts.


Our data management solution, with data migration capabilities, will help you reduce the associated risks with traditional data migrations projects, shorten project timelines, and keep your costs under control. By focusing on the quality of your data, your migration will provide better-quality results.

Quality data is essential for a successful data migration

of data migrations fail every year due to unforeseen challenges. These challenges can result in project delays and failures.

  • Data migrations fail due to a lack of planning and data quality issues.
  • Lack of data standardization with data formats can be challenging to solve.
  • Challenges during a migration can cause delays and budget overages.
  • Insufficient talent, labor, tools, and budget can hinder success.
  • Reduce the risk of a failed migration by preparing timelines, resources, and budget.

Mastering data migration also means mastering data quality.

Why? When you migrate your databases, you will likely find gaps within your data such as a disconnected view of your customers and inaccuracies across your records. To find these flaws before migrating your data, make sure you start your migration project with data quality checks, including standardizing, matching, profiling, and validating your data to increase your ROI on your data migration initiative. This is your key to creating a consolidated, completed database.
