Tools for Data Migration
High scalability, low to zero management, improved security, and OpEx budget flexibility continue to fuel data and application migration to the cloud. The benefits of the cloud are obvious -- once you get there. Moving to the cloud requires planning, strategy, and the right tools for data migration.
Whether you have a basic cloud data migration plan or a data warehouse migration plan, there a few steps you shoud take before you start implmenting the move. First, make sure you understand the full scope of the task at hand. Discovering overlooked migrsation components later can lead to significant project delays and the risk of falling into a sunk cost fallacy trap. Second, make sure the data migration itself has a solid methodology to follow, from assesement to execution. Third, be sure to include data security plans in the migration scope.
