Data Migration is the process of importing legacy data to a new system. The specific method used for any particular system depends entirely on the systems involved and the nature and state of the data being migrated.

Migration enhances and protects the long-term investment in an organization's software infrastructure and effectively reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO). Performance benchmarking ensures that migrated applications perform better than the old applications, resulting in increased scalability, simplified maintenance, and reduced costs.

In addition to being a software development company, at AWATA, we take up migration of your software systems and products to the latest GUI, databases, or data servers and then port it to meet the demand of newer platforms and technology. Our software developers adopt programming strategies that meet the challenges of rapidly evolving technologies.

We have successfully migrated software application (for a major Steel Company) developed using .NET, and MS SQL. For a document preparation company we ported the data from one version / engine of MySQL to the latest stable version for application scalability.

In general we follow the below steps for software and database migration and porting.

  • Assess the application for migration
  • Preparing for migration by analyzing the manual and source codes (if there is any)
  • Migrate the application
  • Perform any changes/modification needed
  • System test
  • Delivery
  • Post-Migration support
