Achieving on-time and on-budget data projects

The NHS collects and stores vast quantities of data that help its departments and applications function. This data is often held in departmental silos which poses a challenge when performing data dependent projects, such as system migrations. Outsourcing data migration projects can become costly and time consuming, whereas internally run projects can often struggle to succeed without the correct level of expertise.

The Solution

NHS Trusts should utilise ‘user-friendly’ migration technology in order to support successful integration of legacy applications, removing data silos and creating operational efficiencies. In addition the ability to provide an audit roadmap of every milestone delivered in a data migration project both by internal and external resource.

What can you do?

  • Combine business-user-friendly ETL tools with rapid profiling technology to take the pain out of data migrations
  • Validate, cleanse and standardise data before merging multiple systems for optimum results
