Data Migration

As organizations upgrade or change from one software system to another, they will need to transfer the historical data to the new system. Data migration is the process of moving information from one system to another without re-keying it. An accurate data migration could be the difference between the success or failure of a software project. If not done properly it could cost your company thousands of dollars in lost productivity, user frustration and customer dissatisfaction.

Castanhas Technology Services offers a disciplined approach to data migration. We believe that understanding the business requirement for the migration is just as important as the technical requirements. That's why we start by doing an extensive analysis of the data to be transferred, the business requirement for the transfer and the requirements of the target system. We will then work with you to develop the migration plan and software that will move your data in the most accurate and efficient manner possible. Once the migration is complete, we will perform an extensive audit to the data to ensure the results you get are the results you expected.
