"Practical Data Migration" gives you techniques and strategies for ensuring that your data migration project achieves maximum returns for your company. This book provides a structured approach to data migration enabling you to get the right data, in the right place, at the right time. Every new computer system needs start up data before it can be put into operation and realize the benefits implicit in new software. The success of every company merger, de-merger or restructuring relies on the success of merging or dividing data. Often, data migration goes wrong - as recently highlighted by the media in organizations as crucial as the NHS, The Inland Revenue, and the Department of Work and Pensions. To realize return on investment, data loaded at 'go live' should be the best available; to maximize the utility of the novel features of a new computer system data should also be the most appropriate obtainable. There has been no published method for finding and re-processing data in legacy systems - until now.
