What is Data Migration?

Essentially, data migration involves moving data from one location or format to another with the intent of introducing a new data system. Most commonly, businesses decide to switch data structures from workplace premises to online formats and storage, further optimizing the efficiency and productivity of the company.

Now, there are multiple methods to transfer data, including from different systems or data centers into the cloud. These migrations data include:

  • Storage migration
  • Application migration
  • Cloud migration

What Are the Benefits of Data Migration?

Data migration can offer a vast number of benefits for your organization. At SFIR, we take a thorough look into assessing your business value and needs when determining which migration software is best for you. Here are some additional benefits of Data Migration:

  • Reduces storage costs
  • Upgrades current applications and software
  • Helps scale the number of necessary resources to meet the particular business dataset requirements

How Long Might a Data Migration Take?

Well, this will solely depend on the particular services that you want within the accounting process. The general process of the data migration will likely contain:

  • Assessing your company.
  • Developing the transition system.
  • Training your team on navigating the system.
  • Double-checking to ensure all the data is appropriately moved.

Generally, the average period we have noticed is around 4-6 weeks to complete the entire process. That said, if you would like any other customizable features specific to your business, you can expect the entire process to take around 8 weeks total. This is a bit time-consuming, but the transition is very necessary in order to ensure that there will be no lost or missing data from your system when you transfer.
