Data is one of the most important aspects in the development of any application. Applications are many a times moved from one platform to another and that is when there are chances of data to be mishandled. The large amount of data has to be taken care of, in the migration process. Developers have to be extra careful, while working on the application and data migration tasks.
The consolidation of systems, infrastructure, virtualisation, standardisation of platforms and the upcoming cloud technologies are some of the major reasons for constant data and application migration from one platform to another. These migration projects are very significant to a company as there are chances of overrunning and failure, or even data loss or corruption. Wisely choose companies that you can rely on for data and application migration as these projects are extremely risky!
