06 Jul Set Your Team Up For Success with Migration Best Practices
So – you’ve taken the leap and decided to join the growing wave of cloud technology. It enables you and your team to collaborate on projects in real time no matter where you are. What’s next?
On the surface, data migration appears to as simple as copy-paste. It’s anything but. Data migration’s perceived simplicity is a major contributor of 70-90% of data migration projects running overtime or over budget. As Microsoft Partners, we leverage our extensive experience to migrate existing projects and data onto the cloud. To ensure a seamless transition, we follow the latest in data migration best practices.
Understand the Data
No matter how simple the migration seems, there will always be unforeseen issues. To set your migration up for success, we examine and evaluate the data – how it is organized, where it is hosted, how it is stored, and how it will need to be formatted when the migration is complete to improve usability. Think of data migration as a 5,000-piece puzzle – we take the time to study the final result before you begin to ensure every step along the way results in the correct final image.
Unify Data Standards
After taking the time to evaluate and understand the complexity of our customer’s data, we establish a comprehensive set of data standards. Establishing best practices for data ensures that any problems are identified early on. As the data migrated, the resulting rules help to develop and define definitions across the organization. Unified standards act as a catalyst for immediate and ongoing data consolidation.
