Article #6 of 8 in the series Right First Time written by Alfa (formerly CHP Consulting).
Right First Time #6: Derisking Your Data Migration is available now.
This is the sixth in a series of articles written by Alfa (formerly CHP Consulting) which cover the tasks that are critical to a successful delivery of complex application replacement. It is based on their experience developed over the last 20 years.
It considers the migration of business data from legacy systems.
Migrations should be treated with the appropriate focus and afforded the best staff, and migrated data must be proven to be stable and true before the project can be signed off to go live.
If data is ‘bad’ then it’s bad PR for the project in general, and will undermine everything you’ve worked hard to achieve.
Other articles in the series are:
- #1 Preparing your Organisation for Success
- #2 Selecting the Best Partner
- #3 Defining the Right Project
- #4 Deploying Future-Proof Technology
- #5 Making Business Change Happen
- #7 Delivering Change and Realising the Benefits
- #8 Making Complex Projects Run Smoothly
