Reconciling Data Into a Single Source

A data transformation and migration program of works was set up after recently acquiring a smaller law firm, before realizing that the quality of the acquired business data appeared to be below expected levels.

The goal included assuring the data was available in the correct format and location in the target database. Increasing the speed associated with data migration was a key driver, whilst ensuring that quality was not sacrificed.
