What is data migration?
Data migration represents 60% of any large enterprise IT project, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC). So its use is prevalent, but what do we mean by it?
Data migration describes the transfer between different types of file formats, databases, and storage systems. If the data set is diverse, the migration process can include mappings and transformations between source and target data to ensure success. It involves consolidation of data where the legacy systems are deployed or replaced, and the main purpose is to improve the performance of the business and provide competitive advantages.
Above all, data quality must be assessed before migration to ensure a successful implementation. The complexity of data migration is directly dependent on the diversity, volume, and quality of data being transferred.
When would I need to migrate data?
The most common reasons for migration is the need to move data to a new system to scale up and accommodate volume growth. However, other circumstances may also prompt organizations to opt for a data migration project. The reasons include:
- Replacing legacy systems that are unable to keep up with the evolving performance requirements of the organization (learn more here).
- Staying competitive by adopting new technologies, paving the path for data migration.
- Reducing storage footprint by migrating to a system that consumes less power and space.
- Transferring data to the cloud, eliminating the cost of on-premise IT infrastructure.
