Data migration — the process of selecting, preparing, extracting, and transforming data, then permanently transferring it from one computer storage system to another — is an important step in breaking down silos and giving companies a single view of data.
To be truly data-led in every decision, enterprises need all data available to make decisions. But many businesses still lag behind. In a recent IDG survey, 40 percent of data professionals cited lack of visibility and control of data silos as a challenge when collaborating with business users.
Data portability tops the list of platform requirements needed to help enterprises get to insights faster. Matillion ETL can not only provide visibility into the data within an organization – it can also help move that data into the cloud data platform or between platforms in a multi-cloud environment. This is why we created our new data migration course on Matillion Academy, designed for Matillion ETL users that want to explore different techniques for moving and migrating their data.
