To ‘guarantee’ the result of the final data migration, the main cut-over and system go-live deployment, the expected result should be known beforehand
This is possible through automation and repetition. Our toolsets have been through many cycles of development over the years with those two goals in mind, the end result will be as expected.
Studies by Gartner show over 83% of data migration projects fail outright, or exceed their budget or schedule. Bloor Group put the outright failure rate at 38%.
DataMC has proven, tried and tested methodologies in place to mitigate risks and delays, make sure you are in the 17% and not the 83%
BIDM - Business Integrated Data Migration aims to:
- Integrate the business and data owners from the very beginning
- Continue strong communications through to the final deployment
- Circumvent or isolate any issue that could potentially jeopardise the project
- Fully transparent data migration process
DM REVOLVE is the gatekeeper. It tracks, schedules, records, and reports all stages of Data Migration
- DataMC’s ground breaking proprietary data migration toolset
- Powered by BIDM methodology
- Developed over decades by industry experts
Above all else DataMC prides itself on good customer relations. To ensure success it is without a doubt the most important aspect of any data migration. Even above the tech and toolset wizardry, our relationship with the client is our number one priority.
The pinnacle of DataMC's automated toolsets. Our revolutionary GOM (Graphics-O-Matic) interface encapsulates all other DM REVOLVE tools and immerses the user in the world of data migration
DM REVOLVE Toolset
DataMC's proprietary toolset, designed to make data migrations smooth for both ourselves and the client
The control hub of DM REVOLVE, TAP houses all of our toolsets
- WOM - Workflow-O-Matic
- POM - Profile-O-Matic
- MOM - Map-O-Matic
- ROM - Report-O-Matic
- TOM - Translate-O-Matic
- FOG - File-O-Gen
WOM is the gatekeeper of DM REVOLVE. Through the WOM interface every part of our 15 step data migration is
- Reported on
- Signed off
Problems can be spotted quickly. Tracking shows the history of objects throughout the project. Relevant parties are informed when objects reach each stage of the process. WOM makes the process transparent, and accountable.
POM – selection criteria from the legacy source is used to obtain the data set, this is used to create the data objects. The following information for each object is recorded here
- Data source and table names
- The SQL selections
- Description of the object
- Any other notes
Once the data has been extracted, the data owner checks it against the expected data set, then signs off to progress to the next stage.
MOM takes the selection criteria and performs mapping from source to target fields. Required translations & data quality checks are identified along with any data quality issues. Once mapping has been completed it is submitted for
- Approval (on to the next stage)
- Refinement (goes through the MOM cycle again)
The ROM is a verification and data quality tool used for showing
- Number of records
- Data quality of the objects
Each object is given a breakdown, reports are generated for
- Errors and the number of fields affected
- Any exception encountered along with the severity
- Individual errors for each record and field if needed
- Refreshed nightly to show the latest view of the data
TOM empowers the data owners to ensure all translations are completed and correct. This is an important step in improving data quality and ensuring a seamless migration.
All the data translations take place in TOM and are tracked and updated. If you need legacy fields updating from say Red to R, and Blue to B then this is the place to do it. All results can be easily exported and checked over if needed.
TOM is also the place to perform inflight data duplication cleansing.
File-O-Gen generates load files from stored model tables, these are ready for import into the target system. Once generated the loads can be tested daily, this leads to
- Fast generation of structured files
- Catching and correcting errors BEFORE loading the data
- Repetition of the load
- Automation and predictability

Just a short note to thank you, DataMC – Data Migration Consultants Pty Ltd and the team on getting MidCoast Council across the line with ECM Data Migration.
From that first phone call in ~ August last year, through the main go-live in December and Phases 2a & 2b, it’s been an interesting ride.
Four systems into one. Vastly different source systems. Running in parallel with a P&R implementation. (and other issues too numerous to mention). All with hard deadlines.
I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism, persistence and calm in which Evan and Beth approached this work.
I have seen some good migrations and some very bad ones. I think this effort is certainly the best I’ve seen.
Please pass on our sincere thanks to Beth and Evan. They are an asset to your organisation. I’ve really enjoyed working with them and learned so much from them.
Over the years we have built up many meaningful relationships with our many customers. Over 80?% of our business is from referrals, people who have experienced first hand the way DataMC works and puts the customer and their needs first.
City of Mitcham Council
“DataMC kept City of Mitcham Council in the loop every step of the way! Utilising their proven methodology ‘BIDM’, DM REVOLVE toolsets and techniques, such as run sheets and stop points and ensuring everyone was constantly kept up to date, they integrated us into the process throughout the duration of our long and complex TechnologyOne ECM Project.
The use of Microsoft Teams and the DataMC live “war room” meant we could just ‘drop in’ and see updates, even on a weekend, which was very good.
The DataMC team’s professionalism was of the highest standard, their attention to detail second to none and they were definitely the SME’s when it came to ‘all things Data and TechnologyOne’!“
Malcolm Guy, Business Partner Systems Analyst, City of Mitcham Council
