Data migration is the process of moving data from one location to another, one format to another, or one application to another. Generally, this is the result of introducing a new system or location for the data. The business driver is usually an application migration or consolidation in which legacy systems are replaced or augmented by new applications that will share the same dataset. Data migration is important because it is a necessary component to upgrading or consolidating server and storage hardware, or adding data-intensive applications like databases, data warehouses, and data lakes, and large-scale virtualization projects.
This is a complex and complicated process for people to attempt to do it on their own and can pose several risks to the data and its relevant users if the right precautions are not being taken.
