Why Data Migration Is the Often-Overlooked Key to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Success
A key component of every Microsoft Dynamics CRM project is data migration.
You can have the most wonderful and enriched CRM application, but without data it is in most cases useless.
Too often, the importance of data migration, along with the reliability of the data, are underestimated. If you telephone clients, you want to use the most current telephone number, not to mention, you want to know which quote you offered on a proposal is most recent and which data you included in a report is the latest.
The problem with data migration is that it tends to be neglected-in part because budget isn't allocated for it, and a sense that existing data isn't that bad and that the upgrading can occur "later."
