A migration to Generis CARA can take on very different facets – depending on the use case. Be it consolidation after mergers & acquisitions, the move from on-premises legacy systems to the cloud, decommissioning projects, or the fundamental restructuring of existing systems and data (e. g. data cleansing and enrichment). In particular, heavily regulated industries such as the life sciences sector face a major challenge as compliance plays a predominant role in addition to the usual pitfalls such as system downtimes, susceptibility to errors when carrying out the migration, or high costs.
Since regulated industries have very individual requirements for the processing of data, classic ETL tools only fulfill a fraction of these conditions and usually do not meet the legal or industry-specific compliance guidelines. Although individual implementations solve this problem, they have to be developed from scratch and are therefore timeconsuming and cost-intensive. They are also more prone to errors – a no-go in a validated environment. migration-center, on the other hand, has been developed specifically for such use cases. In addition to years of experience in content migration, a scalable architecture for high data throughput, the possibility of delta migration to avoid downtime and a sophisticated metadata transformation, migration-center also offers an audit-proof migration process, best suited for regulated industries.
