Three Key Aspects of a Successful Migration

Hopefully, as you watched the webinar, you saw the three key aspects of any successful migration, each one just as important as the other:


  • Your People - By educating your team and providing the proper preparation, resources, and support for each team member, the transition to the new data warehouse will be considerably more successful. Most importantly of all, you should be able to save time and money by getting to the new platform and turning off the old one quicker.
  • Your Data - Your new Snowflake implementation will be a bit more successful with all of the same data you have in your current Teradata data warehouse. Even better if you can get a full inventory of all your objects (tables, views, stored procedures, etc.) and see the same inventory in your new cloud based data platform. And it would be even better than that if you could reposition both your ETL and BI / Reporting tools towards your new data warehouse. Good news! All of the above is possible. There are numerous tools and services out there that claim they can achieve all of the above, so don't find yourself in a bad spot. Make sure you get the results you are expecting by partnering with Mobilize.Net on a data migration strategy.
  • Your Code - Just as important as the other two, but easily the hardest part (depending on the adaptability of your team). Teradata has been around for about 40 years, and some of the stored procedures, BTEQ, and other proprietary scripts they have created over that time period can feel like they are just as old. (Some might be pretty close, depending on how long your team has been working with Teradata.) Mobilize.Net has been doing code conversions and application modernization projects for nearly as long. We can build a cloud migration strategy for you that automates the conversion of your scripts to something more modern that Snowflake understands (such as Python and JavaScript). With over 200 million lines of SQL, BTEQ, and other proprietary scripts converted successfully in just the past 6 months, we can accelerate your migration project to bug-free functional equivalence in Snowflake by approximately 4 times the closest competitor and 21 times a manual rewrite due to our automated code conversion process.

It's worth repeating that each one is as important as the other. See the seven primary steps that we'll walk through covered each aspect in the video. You can connect with an engineer about your specific migration needs by filling out the form to the right.
