Sustento Methodology

2011-05-10 - Data Migration

When performing complex data migrations it is important to maintain structured and well prepared to succeed. The best way to ensure this is by applying a concrete and proven migration methodology. The Sustento migration methodology has been developed during a number of migration assignments over the years. It has been successfully used in the telecom business, the steel industry as well as in the utility industry.

Today most modern ERP systems contain data validation that makes it impossible to migrate data unless the data follows a set of rules and logics. A key component in a successful migration and a problem free business after system go live is therefore proper data cleaning. The Sustento migration includes a set of data cleaning principles as well as a detailed cut over planning, migration testing and data ownership, all equally important to ensure a successful migration.


As illustrated above the Sustento migration methodology is an end-to-end migration process divided into five steps; Plan & Analysis, Design, Build, Test and Deploy with data cleaning and harmonization running as a common activity through them all.
