Data Migration

It is often underestimated just how complex and challenging data migrations can be. The data migration is often perceived as a straightforward exercise, tagged on to the end of a much higher visibility application development.  Consequently, planning, forecasting and budgeting for this critical aspect of solution delivery can be severely lacking.

 

Talend Solutions has extensive experience of large-scale complex data migrations and a track record of successful delivery.

 

Through this experience, a  proven approach has evolved, based on best practices, including:

  • Appropriate stakeholder involvement;
  • Appreciation of and alignment with business transformation;
  • Clear definition of landscape and scope;
  • Comprehensive task planning and accurate estimating techniques;
  • Target data analysis to determine the precise scope of what is required;
  • Source data analysis to determine the precise scope of what is available;
  • Use of experienced resources able to accurately assimilate and interpret complex data structures and data integrity across disparate sources;
  • Intelligent technical design to architect an appropriate data migration solution;
  • Precise definition of source to target transformations;
  • Clear articulation of data quality, data integrity and business rules;
  • Iterative profiling of source data and management of source data quality, duplicate and integrity issues;
  • Accurate and efficient job construction using expert resources, who are certified in the toolset;
  • Automated and manual validation testing to assure the breadth and depth of the migration;
  • Cutover stratgey planning to assure business continuity;
