TechRepublic Releases New Guide on How to Perform a Successful Data Migration
Data migration provides enhanced agility for a business; to effectively move data off existing arrays into more modern ones needs comprehensive planning and seamless execution.
To help efficiently migrate data to a new location while ensuring zero business disruption, TechRepublic walks businesses through the steps of a successful data migration process in a recent guide.
According to the guide, taking stock of where a business is with its data is the first step to effective data migration. By evaluating the data source(s), an enterprise can efficiently channelize its data migration efforts and dodge any obstacle that the data could cause while being fed into the new location.
TechRepublic urges businesses to define the scope of their data before starting off with the migration process. Figuring out the data that needs to be migrated, fixing the budget and the approximate migration duration, reporting requirements, requirements for a target migration database, etc., help curate a thought-out plan of action and set realistic business expectations.
According to TechRepublic, any company looking to ensure that no data is lost in the case of a crash or failure should create a full backup of the data that needs to be migrated.
And once the migration is complete, testing, auditing, and ensuring post-migration maintenance is critical, explains TechRepublic in the guide.
The guide stresses the importance of testing out and leveraging a high-end migration tool for a smooth data transfer.
According to the guide, with the volume of data and the speed of its transfer constantly growing, cashing in on a data migration service seems an obvious option.
By ensuring efficient data extraction, transfer, loading, standardization, cleaning, and reconciliation, a quality migration tool helps businesses drive business agility–faster.
