Data migration

Migrate data from your legacy systems to your new system

We map your legacy systems to your core business concepts and events, then sync data from those systems to AgileData.io.  We then map these concepts and events to your new system and iteratively load data into it, from AgileData.io.

Vision

Is it for me?

For the

Business Owner or Senior Executive;

Who needs

to migrate data from legacy systems to a new system;

The

AgileData.io “Data Migration” is a service;

That

enables you to incrementally migrate your data, with reduced risk;

Unlike

a big bang manual migration process or paying your new systems vendor to learn the structure and intricacies of your legacy system;

AgileData.io "Ask ADI a Question" will:
  • Provide multiple trial migration runs, using a iterative approach;

  • Easily map to multiple new system environments, such as test, training and production;

  • Profile your legacy data to identify potential data quality issues early;

  • Enable you to define repeatable data validation and quality rules to ensure data is not lost or corrupted during migration ;
  • Provide an ongoing data store for historical reporting of legacy data;

  • Have no additional on-boarding, technology or ongoing maintenance costs;
  • Provide a full managed service so you don’t have to worry.

Example Use Cases

No upfront technology costs

You have been quoted a large amount of money to buy a myriad of data tools, but you only need these capabilities for the period of the data migration.  

Example Technology Capabilities Needed

  • Acquiring data from your legacy systems;
  • Profiling legacy system data;
  • Loading data into new systems;
  • Creating data validation rules to identify missing or corrupt data during migration;
  • Automated testing;

Typical Challenges

  • You don’t want to pay for large upfront licenses that will have minimal value after the data migration is completed;
  • Your new vendor only has experience wth a set of data tools for migration that are different to the current data tools your team use;
  • You are capital funding constrained but operating funding rich;
  • You have been offered a “special deal” on the tools to allow use for 3 month period, but you are worried about the risk the project will take more than three months and you will need to pay additional license costs.

Legacy systems complexity

Your legacy system has a large amount of inherent complexity in the way it stores its data, which your new systems vendor might struggle with.

Typical Challenges

  • ???

New systems vendor lack of data migration experience

Your new system is the perfect fit for your requirements and the new vendor are experts in their system, but they have minimal data migration experience.

Typical Challenges

  • The data required to answer the OIA is stored in multiple data sources.
  • Your information technology or data teams are too busy to respond to your data request in the timeframe you need.
  • You do not have visibility of the questions that have been asked in the past or the answers that have been provided.

Your company is the projects systems integrator

Your new system is the perfect fit for your requirements and the new vendor are experts in their system, but they have minimal data migration experience.

Typical Challenges

  • The data required to answer the OIA is stored in multiple data sources.
  • Your information technology or data teams are too busy to respond to your data request in the timeframe you need.
  • You do not have visibility of the questions that have been asked in the past or the answers that have been provided.

Key Features

Everything you need, nothing you don’t

Multiple migration iterations

Your data can be sync’d from your legacy systems and migrated into your new system in multiple iterations, enabling constant feedback of any changes required.

Multiple legacy systems

Data can be migrated from multiple legacy systems.   Each system can be migrated in isolation or in combination to assist with data validation and troubleshooting.

Migration Status Dashboard

You can access the current or previous migration status and data validation metrics all via your web browser

Migrate Historical or Current records

You can migrate your legacy systems historical records into the new system, or just migrate across the current records.

Any data format

We can migrate your data from your legacy system via csv file,  JSON or XML file, or a database extract.  We can migrate into your new system via API, file upload or database updates (depending on your new systems capabilities).

As a service

We will craft a fixed price offer for your data migration, which includes everything required to repeatably migrate your data to your new system, no hidden extras, no surprises

F.A.Q.

How many users can access the answers?

If you are using your own Business Intelligence, Visualisation or Reporting tool to access the answers, then you can have as many users as your tool can support.

If we are providing easy access to the answers via your web browser then we leverage Google Data Studio which is available to as many users as you require at no additional costs.

If you need advanced BI capabilities, we can recommend a number of cost-effective cloud BI options, such as QlikSense, Tableau and PowerBI that enable multiple users to access the answers.  However, these will involve additional costs, to purchase the multi-user licenses of those tools, in addition to our fixed price.

What happens if we want to stop?

If you want to stop using the AgielData.io service at any time, we will decommission your access and permanently delete your data.

We suggest you extract all your data from the consume area before we decommission your access, as once we have deleted it we cannot recover it.

Can we get copies of all your code, so we can replicate it on our platform?

No. 

One of the reasons we are able to deliver answers to your questions using your data so quickly is due to the magic we have built under the covers on our platform.  As you would expect this is the value of AgileData.io and it would be remiss of us to give this magic away.

However, we will always provide you with copies of your event, concept and detail definitions and the Natural Language change rules we configure for you.  With these you could build your own data platform and replicate the data you consume from AgileData.io if you desired.
