Content Migration & Data Conversion
In a perfect world, universal standards would exist to allow content to easily be extracted from one system and seamlessly imported into another. But since we do not live in such a world, the experience and expertise offer by Knowlysis in this process can significantly reduce the level of effort involved.
Knowlysis offers content migration consulting and delivery services, based on proven best practices founded on years of experience with many formats and proprietary applications. You may choose to leverage our experience through the development of automated processes to speed the transition. We also can provide end-to-end services to deliver the content prepared for import into a new system.
There are two important considerations to remember when considering a migration project. First, there is tremendous value in proper preparation for the migration. The process provides an opportunity to reevaluate business goals, user needs, content structure and improvement in ease of access and maintenance. Second, simply migrating the data is not a fix for poor content. A well designed migration process provides some opportunity for data clean-up and restructuring. Careful consideration of these issues will go a long way to provide a better result from the migration.
The value of content is greatly enhanced when users can access as broad a spectrum of information as possible. In some cases, important legacy information or content in proprietary systems is missing due to the level of effort involved in extracting it and bringing it into the new system.
Knowlysis offers a full suite of data conversion and clean-up services, utilizing both on-shore and off-shore resources, that make this effort much more practical to undertake. The right combination of automation and manual operations produce cost effective options for gaining value from all information resources.
