Data Migration


A major element of cost for many companies that are implementing new enterprise-wide IT systems such as SAP, is that historical data must be moved from the old system to the new. We can bring our expertise and integration tools to facilitate this move, at substantially lower cost to you.

Scope And Deliverables

SatiStar can quickly and efficiently transform business processes by integrating existing data, applications, and environments with new systems and applications – including all popular ERP, CRM, and SCM application packages; messaging technologies such as MQSeries; application technologies like Java™/J2EE/JCA and XML; and new Internet technologies such as Web Services and .Net.

In the migration of data from one system to another, a data transformation converts data from a source data format into destination data.

Data transformation can be divided into two steps:

  • Data mapping maps data elements from the source to the destination and captures any transformation that must occur.
  • Code generation that creates the actual transformation program.

Data element to data element mapping is frequently complicated by complex transformations that requires one-to-many and many-to-one transformation rules.

In an automated migration activity, the code generation step takes the data element mapping specification and creates an executable program that can be run on a computer system.

SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
