Data Migration – Lessons Learned

“With the right tools and experience, data migration to or from Appian should be plain sailing,” says Krassimir Dimitrov, Head of Engineering at psKINETIC.

The team has managed a dozen migration projects from legacy systems into Appian applications in the last 2 years.  A recent project involved migrating over 10 million complex patient records.

Here are key lessons we have learned:

1. Data migration needs to be considered at the beginning of a project, it’s all too often left to the end;

2. Good project management needs to be in place;

3. The right skilled resources supported with the right tooling are crucial. We work with several tools but have found Talend to be particularly useful.
