The benefits of migrating to the Salesforce Cloud solution are significant—but what about data migration?
Today, regardless of what industry you operate in, the Cloud reflects the convergence of three worlds: consumers, business and technology. To be successful, your company must understand the changing requirements of all three. For instance, the increasing use of Social Networking and mobile devices means
that companies must adopt new ways of working with both customers and employees. At the same time,
businesses are facing cost reduction targets as well as rapid time-to-market pressures like never before.When you make an acquisition, consolidate multiple instances, or migrate to a application, you want to reap the advantages of this strategic business investment quickly. To do so, it’s critical to integrate your data and be assured of its quality so that it meets the needs of the business. That’s the DEFINITION of a successful data migration.
Unfortunately, 84% of data migration projects fail to meet expectations; 37% experience overruns exceedingthe original budget by an average of 30%, and 67% are not delivered on time, averaging a 41% overrun. There are multiple reasons:

  • Lack of methodology.
  • Unrealistic scope expectations.
  • Improper tool selection and usage.
  • Lack of focus on data quality and data integrity
  • Lack of data governance and stewardship.
