Data Migration – Trials and Validation

Step 12 of a DataMC migration

The data objects are now ready for a Trial load, this load replicates the Go-Live. The files are loaded into a test environment, and the data is then validated.

Trials are a good way to practice the Go-Live, and iron out all the processes. Any data or mapping issues found during validation can also be addressed.

As more objects reach this stage of the migration, more Trials can be done. The size and complexity of the project dictates the number of Trials needed.
