At Endiem everyone goes to data jail! If you're an experienced Admin, you know how it feels to be "serving time" with your data—it’s no fun scrubbing and moving data, but the job has to be done.

In it’s most simplistic form, data migration consists of the modification of data and transmitting it from one storage location to another.

If your organization has data migrations planned in the near future, take some time to ensure that you have a well-thought-out plan to seamlessly execute. When all is said and done, data is one of the most strategic assets you have—do not fall victim to the typical pitfalls.
