Data Migration in ERP Projects
A key value proposition of ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems is the efficiency to be gained from the integrated processes they support. These integrated processes are dependent on accurate and well maintained data. Any ERP implementation will involve the migration of data from one or more legacy systems. Depending on the scale and complexity of the implementation this can range from keying in small amounts of data to electronically migrating large volumes of data. Most implementations will involve the latter and a significant effort in preparing and cleansing the data for the migration.
This white paper examines What is Data Migration; The key activities involved including Data Collection, Extraction, Transformation, Loading and Retention; Planning & Implementation; and other things to consider including Tier 1 & Tier 2 Data Migration and Data Migration in Regulated Environments.
