With Preparation and Communication, Migrations Needn’t Be Scary

Host: George L'Heureux, Principal Consultant, Data Strategy
Guest: Sita Nathan, Senior Solution Design Consultant

Whether switching vendors or upgrading with an existing vendor, data technology migrations pose a risk to even the most seasoned organizations. There are changes to data, changes to processes, and even changes to the user experience that need to be considered. Failing to properly think through the transition for any of these can be problematic.

In this episode of Data Talks, Sita Nathan, a Dun & Bradstreet Senior Solution Design Consultant, gets in-depth with recommendations on how to approach a migration, who to involve, how much planning time is required – even how long to run systems in parallel. Having a plan before embarking on a migration can help avoid the pitfalls and make the experience easier on everyone involved.
