When deciding to conduct an EAM migration, it is imperative that your data is reviewed and audited before loading it onto your new EAM. However, during the review process, lack of time and a suitable platform for the maintenance and reliability teams to review and approve data before loading it into the new CMMS system can pose a problem and lead to the new CMMS failing to achieve the desired benefits.

Ensuring you have the right data 

Conducting a data cleanse is the first step to ensuring you have the right kind of data loaded into your new EAM. Most EAM implementations fail because companies do not plan their migration as a separate project. When scheduled as a separate project, maintenance teams have the ability to participate in a more systemized manner. Also, with a separate project, you can set timelines and assign specific tasks to specific people in your team which will help you stay on track.

Secondly, investing in the right technology and the right people for your EAM migration can help you achieve the desired benefits of the new EAM. There is always a risk of missing important data during the data migration process but choosing a migration solution that’s fit for purpose and built to migrate asset and maintenance master data can help avoid data gaps and mistakes.

Making the most of your source data

It isn’t easy to migrate all your data to a new platform. It takes a special amount of time, effort, and strategy to switch systems without losing out on important information.
