Why Migrate Data Data migration is a necessary step as more organizations move away from their legacy database to the commonly available and popular RDBMS (Relational Data Base Management Systems). In many of the re-engineering projects, it becomes necessary to move away from the existing database system to more advanced database systems, which take full advantage of technological advances in the software industry. Re-engineering of older processes. Replacing older legacy systems due to changing business, technology and methodologies. Taking advantage of newer technologies, both hardware and software, which offer superior performance advantages. Older database technologies lacked the relational integrity offered by todays relational databases. This results in added costs to the user in trying to deal with these shortcomings. Some of the "Off-the-Shelf" packages are sophisticated enough to address many of today’s business needs, making it more feasible to migrate to these packages, reducing the ever-increasing in-house maintenance of the older legacy systems.Our Solution SM Consulting has undertaken numerous large-scale migration projects for major telecom companies. Our migration services not only help to move data between systems, but also assess, plan and execute migration projects. SM Consulting data management experience helps enterprises overcome the obstacles typically associated with migrations such as time, cost, application downtime and loss of productivity. Some of our migration work involves converting data from legacy systems, Excel sheets and other formats to new technology including industry leading Granite Xng OSS.
