What is data migration?
The process of data migration involves transferring data from one system to another while changing the storage, database or application. It occurs when an existing hardware is being upgraded or when there is a transfer to a completely new system. It can be done in multiple ways including the following:
- The two systems can be merged to create a new one.
- One of the systems can be migrated to the other one.
- Create a data warehouse and a common view to view both the systems without modifying or upgrading them.
Why do we need data migration?
Whenever a merger or an acquisition takes place, applications, which are redundant, are phased out or retired. However, the data that they contain need to be preserved and moved to the new system. This can be done when upgrading to a new version of a database or when changing to a new version of the application. The purpose of data migration is to transfer the existing data in the application to the new application. The format of the data may change depending on the requirements of the new system.
