A Well-Planned Migration is Key to a Successful Migration

There is a lot at stake in a data migration. Business information is key to business operations so specific goals need to be established. Data must be migrated from the source location to the target location completely and accurately. The process needs to be done quickly with as short a downtime window as possible. And, finally, the cost must be manageable.

HSB teams approach data migration projects using best practices and industry proven methodologies. We design a data migration that takes into account the unique requirements of your organization and then develop and deploy your successful data migration step, by step, by step.

Five Key Factors for Successful Migration

1 Changing constituent needs require system and process changes with minimal service disruption.

As systems and processes evolve to meet the changing needs of constituents, information is your vital operational asset. When it becomes necessary to migrate data and applications to meet those needs, it must happen as efficiently as possible, with reduced downtime, and with as little business disruption as possible.

2 Protecting your data during system changes is essential.

Moving large amounts of data can be hazardous and time-consuming. Potential exists for data loss and reduced productivity. Protecting that data is the most significant thing you can do.

3. The migration process must be clearly defined.

Availability, security, and reliability must be engineered into every process from start to finish. Proven methodologies are leveraged along with skills and expertise to ensure an effective, timely, and efficient data migration.

4 Efficient data migration strategy includes identifying infrastructure vulnerabilities.

Specific migration strategy accounts for unforeseen interruptions, applications that need to be ported, an application integration plan, resource needs, operational windows and associated risks.

5 Stability and availability for mission-critical applications are key factors.

Improved stability, availability, and greater storage management, along with rapid implementation and predictable costs, are key benefits in successful migration.
