The problem

Data migrations have a notorious reputation for being both highly challenging and prone to failure. This reputation has been well earned, according to a Gartner report as many as 83% of data migration projects exceed their deadline and/or budget and in some cases fail entirely.

Lack of business engagement
Data migrations are usually handed to the IT department to ‘deal with’. Whilst the IT department may understand the legacy data, they may also have gaps in their knowledge of the business processes involved in specific business areas.
Lack of legacy data knowledge
Often, the reasons for moving to a new system is due to the lack of understanding of the data in existing systems, and, as time has gone on, people have worked on workarounds to get the data they need. Without this understanding there is a high degree of certainty that the effort required may be underestimated leading to unexpected costs further down the line.
Data quality issues
It is highly unlikely that the existing data has no issues at all and will fit beautifully into your new system. Resolving these issues manually is often not feasible and can be highly resource intensive, especially without the appropriate tools or expertise.
Volume of data
Large data volumes can adversely affect development and testing times once the volume of data becomes significant enough to affect data transfer, storage and the processing capabilities of the migration tool(s).

The solution

The PhixFlow platform and consultancy team support your data migration, alleviating stress and overcoming challenges, through technical innovation and experience. Our strength is in the ease with which PhixFlow can be configured to consolidate multiple data sources, profile data, automate data cleansing and present data in interactive forms. These abilities increase consistency and confidence in any data migration project.

Increased Business Engagement
Business engagement will be greatly improved by configuring apps that reduce the time burden on your subject matter experts through automating data aggregation for investigations and allowing users to provide input directly on the data.
Improved Data Quality
PhixFlow provides over 115+ functions to quickly identify and correct data anomalies. Reusable custom functions can also be configured to support truly bespoke needs while avoiding the need for reworking. Enriched data provides more accurate, complete and consistent data. These business rules can be retained and used to maintain data quality post migration.
Automated Reconciliation
Our automated reconciliation process cross checks the source and target systems to ensure data has been migrated as expected. Any potential issues are captured and highlighted to end users with the opportunity to apply individual or bulk fixes.
