Razorleaf’s project managers, developers, and consultants have been cleaning, transforming, and migrating legacy data for years, and have developed an internal set of guidelines and techniques for legacy data migrations and ETL projects. The company’s long history in data migration has provided unique expertise in migration of version history, CAD structures, and object relationships which are frequently misunderstood (and underestimated) concepts.
Razorleaf’s approach includes steps to identify scope, assess data quality, define transformations, plan iteration and testing models, and document success criteria (via use cases, test matrices, etc.). In many cases, Razorleaf proposes hybrid migration projects where the client cleans and migrates some data manually while Razorleaf cleans and migrates other data via automated tools. Specifications, sample data, use cases, and detailed logging figure prominently in Razorleaf’s approach to legacy data migration, ensuring top quality results and consistent data integrity.
Legacy data migration is one of the most challenging and under-estimated components of enterprise system deployments. Razorleaf’s consulting team collectively has decades of experience in extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL) of legacy data for many, many types of business systems including PDM, PLM, MRP, ERP, CRM, and custom applications.
