Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Many organizations find themselves at one time in a situation where oneof their IT systems has to be replaced with another system. The new system has to get access to the legacy data in order to function. This thesis examines a migration case where the company Medius has made a new version of their product Mediusflow that has a completely new data model. The problem is then how to migrate data from the old to thenew version. The thesis first examines different data migration processes to find one suitable for the specific case. Then a prototype migration solution is developed using the chosen process to show that the migration can be done. In the end conclusions are drawn from the experiences gained during the thesis to what key factors are important for successful data migrations.
