Moving Your Data – Intelligently
As data storage platforms continue to evolve, organizations will need flexible solutions to migrate enterprise content. But all too often organizations simply end up shifting old problems to new platforms during the transition. Organizations could unknowingly migrate unsecured, sensitive files to the new system—and features designed to enhance collaboration and productivity may increase vulnerability and risk of data loss. Moving your data without knowing what files you’re moving can be risky.
But there’s a smarter way to do it.
“Moving Your Data” Transcription:
When you move from one house to another, when you’re cleaning out your garage or your closet, you’re not just moving everything over, right?
You’re throwing away those old pairs of shoes that you used to mow the lawn. Maybe you’re saving pictures that are currently getting ruined because they’re out sitting in the open. Or maybe you’re packaging those up and putting them in a safe place.
Maybe you find a game or a movie or a book that you had no idea where it was. Now that you found it, you’re going to put it up on your shelf so now it’s accessible. Maybe you will read that.
It’s really taking advantage of the opportunity to evaluate your content, determine what the best route is for that, and then execute. And the beauty of it is, is that it’s not a manual process with intelligent migration. You’re leveraging technology, artificial intelligence, to really accelerate that process and to ensure things go where they should based on how you define that.
“Data migration shouldn’t be done lightly, and it won’t be smooth or painless. It’s like moving houses; you’re going to discover some junk and bad practices. So start thinking about it as you were to physically move. And hire a good mover.”
