Almost all businesses migrate information from one format to another. A migration may be a one time event as in the conversion of legacy data to a new enterprise wide ERP solution. A migration may be repetitive in the case of exporting data to a data warehouse or reporting subsystem.

QFund takes a realistic approach to data migrations matching experience with correct toolsets. We provide the tools and can provide the required hardware needed for the conversion effort. The end result is a successful migration at a reasonable cost.

  • Source Identification: what application, what database, data formats, field formats, business rules, export options, security issues

  • Target Host Identification: what operating system, where located

  • Target Identification: what application, what database, data formats, field formats, business rules, import options, security issues
