Enterprise Data Migration


Companies are looking to system and application migration as a cost-effective and less risky road to IT modernization. System consolidation, the adoption of service oriented architectures, the introduction of new applications, and down-sizing for enhanced maintainability are widely used approaches and are being implemented by system integrators, hardware vendors and software companies alike, at a rapid pace. Enterprise Data Migration plays an important role in all such projects.

Data being an organization?s most critical, ubiquitous and essential business asset, it is vital that any migration be carried out without any disruption to data availability. Data Migration is the process of moving, sometimes very large, required volumes of data from existing to new systems. Data migration is an inescapable and major aspect of every application or platform migration project.
