Migration Solutions

The Need for Migration

The purpose of successful data migration is to ensure that organizations always work with accurate data. Accurate data mitigates the risk of delays, bad quality products, and budget overruns.

Migration Between Tools

Migration Tool

With new innovative tools being released in the marketplace which can significantly improve productivity and/or help create differentiated products and services, there is a need for users to migrate from one tool to another. Other business reasons that necessitate the need for migration are:

  • Mergers and Acquisitions,
  • Regulatory and Compliance adherence,
  • Tools consolidation within the organization, or
  • Reorganization within a large enterprise.

Successful Data Migration

Data Migration

Enterprises spend millions of dollars to migrate data and despite this investment, migration exercise is rarely successful. Poor migration will lead to loss in productivity and sub-optimal decisions in future due to loss in data fidelity. It also leads to:

  • Significant vsystem downtime leading to idle Increased time to value.
  • Cost and time overruns in the project.

Migrating Large Size Data with History from a Legacy System on to a New System



A leading organization in the engineering and geospatial software space wanted to replace its 10+ year old ALM system and adopt a new system to improve processes and productivity.
High volume of data
However, as the company was using the current system for a long time – the system had reasonably large amount of data and user profiles.
Large number of activeusers
Compliance requirements necessitated that data had to be migrated with complete traceability and history.
Maintaining traceability
Since the system was a business-critical system, avoiding downtime was desired.
Minimizing system downtime as much as possible

This is a sample case study for migration. There can be multiple such case studies. You can read a few of them in our Case Studies section.
