A data migration project can be seen as building a house. First you must get the foundation right, then you can raise the walls and in the end, put the roof on top. If you do not get the foundation right, the walls will be instable, and the roof will collapse.
That’s the same for a data migration project:
- Get the foundation right: Ask yourself: Do we have enough data migration experience, and change management skills in-house as well as the full support of senior management?
- Build stable walls: within a data migration project there are three major walls – data, technology and management. On these three walls the roof must lay securely.
- Finally, the roof: no data migration project can be successful without a go live, so getting the system life with superb data quality and within a set time frame and budget.
