Your business generates vast amounts of data every day, but if that data is inaccurate, incomplete, or hard to access, it’s not doing you much good. That’s where data cleansing and migration comes in.
What is data cleansing and migration?
Data cleansing is the process of identifying and correcting errors and inconsistencies in your data, such as incorrect or outdated information, duplicates, and formatting errors.
Data migration is the process of transferring data from one system or database to another. Together, these processes ensure that your data is accurate, complete, and accessible, so you can get the most value out of it.
There are a few common scenarios when a business may need data cleansing and migration:
- When you’re transitioning to a new system or database
- When you’re merging with another company or organisation
- When you’re consolidating multiple databases or systems
- When you’re dealing with large amounts of outdated or incorrect data
