Information migration & implementation

What is information migration and implementation?

Information migration is required as systems change over time. This results in organisations needing to carry out information migration from one system to another, often at huge cost and effort.

Why you need information migration

Whether you are migrating information to a new system or upgrading an old one, you need to move the information within it – including all the metadata that has been built up over time and has a high business value.

For many organisations, this can often be quite a daunting and complex task to undertake alone. Metataxis can help you do this the right way, reducing risks, managing complexity, controlling costs and timescales, while minimising downtime.

How we do it

Metataxis can help you plan and successfully deliver your information migration project. We have a proven methodology that we use to take you through the whole migration process. This serves as a framework that can be adapted to the individual client and their particular requirements.

  1. Analyse: A Metataxis consultant conducts a high-level audit of the content you intend to migrate
  2. Recommend: Based on the analysis, we create the relevant strategy and tactics to get the job done. We also advise you on planning and help you select the best software tools
  3. Design: We ensure that the correct target information architecture is in place to receive the migrated content, and that the system is correctly configured.
  4. Support: We provide ongoing advice and support to your stakeholders to ensure that the migration is done in the best way possible
  5. Migration: If needed, we can also provide migration assistants who can perform the actual migration itself. This is especially useful if your stakeholders don’t have the time or skills to do the migration themselves
