MTI Data Migration: Overview
Unlike other projects such as integration or implementation projects, a data migration project will be executed, normally once, and then all the specific data migration environment and work will be retired when the new system goes live. It means that quite all resources involved on this project will be used once. MTI’s data migration experts will handle the global migration project, working closely with your organisation. They will build data migration management and governance policies that comply with your business needs and allow you to reach the awaited results with the absolute minimum risk, avoiding you to invest massively on a project that executes once.
MTI has developed for several years best practices and recognized methodologies for data migration processes. We are used to working on critical and heterogeneous environments, which is the case in all the data migration projects. Depending on the customer's architecture and technologies, MTI’s experts will use various approaches to reduce operation disruptions and be sure that the migration project will be performed within the allotted time frame and avoid any negative impact on the business.
Data Optimisation Phase
The data migration of an architecture of storage towards another is a real opportunity to include scoping and data profiling or a data quality assessment or a Data cleaning phase. These additional operations allow an opportunity to optimise application execution. Storage Data Classification, Data placement will optimize SAN & NAS environment, decrease the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and improve the level of services. In addition, the Tiering of Storage coming from data classification will largely improve the Business Continuity setup process through the Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP).
MTI Data Availability Commitment
All phases and tasks of a data migration project need to be robust, reliable, scalable and secure. MTI define for each migration a data migration plan that includes all the necessary information for each task of the project, complete planning and precise timing for each operation and the “fail back procedure”.
The MTI fail back procedure makes it possible to guarantee the availability of the data in the event of problem occurring during the migration. Starting from a certain point in time “the recovery point” the procedure of fail back is engaged so presenting data as it was prior to start of the migration process.
At the end of the migration phase, a strong data verification process is performed to ensure there is no data corruption or unavailability, running both systems to identify possible erroneous data. Thus, this phase prevents business disruption.
MTI Data Migration: Key Benefits
- Migrate Data efficiently and rapidly without any additional investment in terms of internal human resources or assets
- Get efficient data migration services while minimizing business disruption
- Minimise the risk of data loss or corruption using best practices and recognized methodology
- Get a quicker Return Of Investment (ROI) and reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) on your storage investment
