HCM Data Migration Xpert Package

HCM Data Migration involves extraction, translation, transformation and movement of data from a legacy source system into the target system format. Typically, a new target system includes different functionality or changed processes that require data changes. Legacy source data may require clean-up (e.g. correcting addresses, de-duplicating), which is usually performed in the legacy source system prior to migration. 

Step 1 – Requirements and Analysis:

  • Define data requirements, approach and responsibilities.
  • Distill high-level assessment requirements into detailed Requirements Traceability Matrix.
  • Define migration data scope and migration rules.
  • Profiling of 100% of migration data to assess data quality, volume and number of variants.
  • Define and agree on any data clean-up to be performed, prior to migration.
  • Define total migration approach and relevant components (all data sources, all variants).
  • Decide on single migration (big bang), phased or incremental approach.

Step 2 – Design, Develop and QA/Unit Test:

  • Design how each data item will be mapped and migrated from source to target system.
  • Design how the migration will be validated through testing.
  • Define non-functional aspects (i.e. performance / time window for the full migration).
  • Develop and QA and unit test migration processes against legacy system test data.

Step 3 – Extract, Translate and Validate Legacy Data:

  • Testing of the new system with prepared test data (precondition for the next steps).
  • Trial migrations to validate all procedures and jobs required to properly migrate data.
  • Testing of the new system processes (end-to-end) with the migrated data.

Step 4 – Prepare and Populate Target System Data Load Templates:

  • Build the target system templates.
  • Extract data from Providence standard tables, populate the target system templates.
  • Validate source data correctly populated into target system templates.
  • Work with Client and target system vendor points of contact to confirm data is ready for go-live.
  • Produce and provide the final migration templates to target system vendor.

Step 5 – Deliver Target System Data Load Templates and Project Close Out:

  • Provide completed target system templates for upload into production environment.
  • Support Client validation of data in new environment and resolve any errors identified.
