Data Migration Consulting & Strategy | BDO IT Solutions CanadaData Migration Consulting & Strategy

Migrating to a New System Doesn’t Mean a Bumpy Ride

In business there comes the day when the systems you use are no longer doing the job. You’ve put it off so far, but now the cost to maintain obsolete technology is mounting. You’re ready to take the plunge – either by upgrading or making the switch to a new application.

The snag though is how to ensure you keep all your valuable content and information, with easy transparent access to it on the other side. You don’t want to find yourself throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

DATA MIGRATION IS NOT A DYI PROJECT

For companies with internal IT Departments, there’s a temptation to do the job in house. But IT people work with data and processes. They may not be able to characterize your information as a business person. Essentially, it’s far too easy for critical data to be overlooked.

GOOD MIGRATION STARTS WITH KNOWLEDGE

BDO’s data migration strategy involves making sure that all the data in question is appropriately identified from a business standpoint. We speak with key members of your team, and assess your operation from front to back including:

  • Business objectives and long-term strategy
  • What data is to be included, what’s to be archived, and what platform is best suited to the migration
  • When best to move data to minimize data, and in what order

 

We also provide checks and balances that include:

  • Completion analysis
  • Preliminary tests with stakeholders

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO MIGRATE

If you’re experiencing any deficiencies with the products you’re already using, and frustrated that you can’t use technology available today – you’re ready to migrate.

Get the right people to get your team into formation. With BDO’s Migration Consulting Services, we’re here to help you get the job done.
