Data migrations are frequently seen as an unexciting step in building the right environment for a new enterprise application.
For this reason, theyare frequently poorly planned and poorly understood. Industry researchers, like Gartner and META Group, agree that data migration challenges can drive significant unbudgeted expenses for these projects - and are a frequent cause of project failures.
in most cases, these costs can be attributed to a design for a new application that does not take existing data complexities into account. This means that issues are discovered only during data take on - a very late stage in the implementation life cycle - and significant, costly rework is required to amend the application design to cater for these anomalies.
