Data Migration and Conversion :: Overview

The most difficult part about migrating to a new system is the migration of legacy data. Your existing data is a rich source of business intelligence that you would not want to leave out of the new system. Even if your new application has a data import feature, it would still require you to map data fields from the legacy database to the database of the new system. Data conversion poses similar issues. In data conversion, you also need to ensure that you maximize advantages of features inherent in the new database platform.
