Did you know that 80% of all data migrations fail?

Like any large project, data migration relies heavily on many variables. Successful data migration depends on attention to detail, no matter how small. Here are 3 items essential to a successful data migration:

  1. Conduct a Pre-Migration Impact Assessment to identify the necessary people, processes and technology needed.
  2. Ensure accurate, high-quality data to better streamline the migration process and optimize system functionality.
  3. Assemble the right team, including an experienced leader and business users, to ensure timely and on-budget completion.

35% of organizations plan to migrate data this year.   If you’re among them, use this checklist to create the right plan, timeline, budget, and team for success.
