Data migrations should, in an ideal world, be straightfoward: the company’s data is in one system, and it gets moved to another system. But too often, even simple migrations are delayed by problems with the data, the technology, or both.
A business that can’t effectively migrate its data is trapped, unable to evolve its systems as its needs change. But a strong data migration tool can remove the roadblocks that prevent the business from moving its data effectively.
To achieve effective data migration, you must:
With MIOsoft data migration tools, you can painlessly connect to the systems you need, when you need them.
The first step in a migration is being able to connect to your systems and view the data inside. But not all systems use standard formats. When this is the case, individually programming custom adapters can require time and expense that bogs the project down.
MIOsoft software includes scalable, flexible data adapters that can connect to a huge variety of systems without custom programming. If custom programming is needed, it can be embedded within the adapter to maximize the availability and use of MIOsoft’s visual tools.
The data in the adapter updates its display in real time, so you can immediately investigate whether the adapter’s current configuration is producing the desired results.
With MIOsoft data migration tools, you can make your data the best it can be.
Preparations for a data migration can reveal data quality problems in the source systems. Sometimes, these problems are severe enough that failing to address them would not only impair the destination system’s operation, but would damage your ability to migrate the data at all.
MIOsoft software includes data quality in all data migration solutions, with a complete feature set that includes interactive profiling and analysis, a built-in suite of single- and multi-column transformations, and more.
MIOsoft’s visual-first approach to tools allows you to involve non-programmer business experts and systems users in the project. These users can help ensure that your data quality effort—and the migration itself—stays on the right track by contributing information about the business use of the data and the in-practice operation of the systems.
With MIOsoft data migration tools, you can make sense out of your data for maximum meaning.
When many systems contain data about the same entities, a migration of those systems can encounter many issues, including:
These problems can impede effective business use of the data and will perpetuate themselves in the destination system if they are not resolved.
MIOsoft software includes strong capabilities for initiatives like entity resolution and data deduplication. If your project needs these capabilities, you can seamlessly incorporate them into your migration, so your data is complete, correct, and deduplicated when it reaches its final destination.
