Kenway has significant experience with data migration across multiple industries. Through our engagements with many different clients, we have gathered crucial insights into the data migration process:
Technology alone doesn’t solve problems.
Many companies will assume that a huge investment into new infrastructure will provide immediate ROI. The true key to unlocking ROI with a data migration is instantiating an effective operating model that is tailored to the organization. One size does not fit all.
Understand the legacy data.
A system is only as good as its integrations and moving from an old system to a new system is no different. Legacy data might be poor quality or incomplete, which can cause massive migration issues. A data migration is the ideal opportunity to implement data governance.
Reduce shadow IT for a cleaner implementation.
Most companies have years or decades of shadow IT built upon its legacy systems. Reducing shadow IT before an implementation begins is critical to minimizing the number of issues that appear post-implementation.
