Data migration is the process of transferring data between storage types, formats, or software solutions. At ACG, we strive to perform data migration programmatically to achieve an automated migration, freeing up your staff from the tedious tasks of manual data entry. This process is commonly required when organizations change software solutions or upgrade to new applications.
To achieve an effective and efficient data migration procedure, data in the old solution will be carefully mapped to the new solution providing a design for the data extraction and data loading. This design relates old data formats to the new application's formats and requirements. Programmatic data migration will involve multiple phases which include data extraction where data is read from the old solution and data loading where data is written to the new solution.
After loading into the new solution, results will be subjected to data verification to determine whether data was accurately translated, is complete, and supports processes in the new solution. During verification, there may be a need for a parallel run of both systems to identify areas of disparity and forestall erroneous data loss.
At ACG, we utilize a team of developers, with expertise in both databases and web technologies, who are able to deliver complete web applications specifically built to address to your business needs.
