When data is ready to be archived, migrating that data out of existing systems can seem like an intimidating task. With potentially thousands of files and documents sitting in a document management system or file sharing site, it can be difficult to think of where to start. Common fears include risking the integrity of the data, or that migration requires a lot of resource and effort for internal teams. As a result, many leave their data in its original system despite the risks this can pose to the data.
However, migration is very necessary and difficult to avoid when retaining data for long periods of time. With factors such as technology obsolescence, inaccessibility and risk of corruption, becoming comfortable with migrating data is crucial.
