The “Don’ts” of an EAM Migration!

October 19, 2017Blog

Data migration is often a lengthy process. Hence, many asset-intensive companies who are migrating data to an EAM system from one or more existing asset management systems want simply to get it right and to migrate it quickly. But why do asset-intensive companies want to migrate their data to a new EAM system? Perhaps it’s because their data quality in their current EAM system is poor, perhaps they want a new method to monitor and track it, or maybe they wish to synchronize all of their data in one place. Whatever the case may be, if your company has decided to move forward with an EAM migration, what is an effective way to migrate your data to a new EAM system? Let’s look at what you don’t want to do during an EAM migration!

Don’t Perform An EAM Migration If…

  1. You can’t stage and visualize asset data effectively during the migration of data from one system to another. It’s crucial to edit data as required in a staging area and have flexible mappings.
  2. You have a high number of legacy systems where asset and maintenance data are stored and managed. This will result in a high degree of duplication and excessive IT costs.
  3. Your company is using expensive, time-consuming, one-time “service” engagements to migrate data from one system to another. This will result in incorrect data being used in the new system.
  4. You are using technical and costly generic data integration tools to build and manage the migration of data.
  5. The migration is taking too long, which negatively impacts the productivity, management and cost of existing operational assets.
  6. It is costly, complex and requires too much effort to continue to run the existing legacy systems during your EAM system implementation based on the excessive length of the EAM migration project
  7. There is a lack of time and suitable platform for the maintenance and reliability teams to review and approve data before it needs to be loaded into the target system.
  8. You are uncertain about what the target EAM system will be and how it will be configured.
  9. You cannot monitor the progress and report on the completeness of the migration project
  10. There are imperfect mappings between the source and target EAM system, resulting in data loss during the migration.
  11. It is difficult dealing with asset that is constantly changing during the migration project.
  12. You are unable to comply with your corporate standards, meaning you cannot validate and approve asset and maintenance data before it’s migrated into your EAM/CMMS system.
  13. You cannot track and audit changes to asset and maintenance data during the migration process for compliance purposes.
