Your EAM Migration Cheat Sheet
What is an EAM migration?
An enterprise usually manages its assets using special asset management software. An EAM migration is the process of moving from using one enterprise asset management system to another. In the simplest terms, that means taking all the information from one system, reformatting it as needed, and putting it into the new system.
Why would I need an EAM migration?
There are a few different reasons why an organization may choose to carry out a migration. Maybe your old legacy systems are becoming too costly and unwieldy to maintain. Or perhaps you were recently acquired by another organization that uses a different software, and this organization wants uniformity in how it manages its assets. Whatever the reason may be, ultimately EAM migrations happen because something about the original system just isn’t cutting it. If you’re looking for signs that you ought to look into an EAM migration, check out this blog post.
What are the benefits?
