Data migration is a task that often instills apprehension in both IT professionals and business leaders. The projected size of the global data migration market is anticipated to reach $10.98 billion by 2025, with an estimated compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.37% from 2020 to 2025.
The challenge of transferring substantial volumes of information from one system to another without disruptions can be a complex endeavor and a challenge for even the most competent IT professionals.
What if there was a more efficient approach? Consider Hopp as your guide to process support in any data migration. Hopp is not just a migration tool; it represents a sophisticated solution for data migration management.
Our cutting-edge software is engineered to seamlessly manage, monitor, and facilitate collaboration on events and results during data migration. In this blog, we'll explore the different features that make Hopp an indispensable tool for any business taking on complex migration endeavors.
The Hopp Portal
Central to Hopp's process support is its user-friendly Portal. This dynamic web application serves as the central hub for presenting migration results and events. Let's take a look at the key functionalities that make the Portal a standout component within Hopp software.
In-Depth Understanding through Aggregations
The Portal is designed to offer users a comprehensive understanding of data migration management through meticulous drill-down and aggregations. It presents results in a clear and digestible format, making it a valuable tool for assessing the overall quality of each migration iteration. Baseline comparisons are easily accessible, providing users with insights into trends since the last iteration and fostering informed decision-making.
Granular Insights for Business Objects
In the context of data migration management, the chosen unit of migration—we call it— Business Object—is a crucial entity that encapsulates information related to a specific business concept or entity. It represents real-world business entities, such as customers, products, or transactions aligning stakeholders and facilitating communication.
For every migrated Business Object, the Portal goes beyond surface-level summaries. It provides a detailed breakdown of successful and rejected migrations, empowering users with the ability to analyze results at a granular level. This feature is invaluable for pinpointing areas that may require attention or further investigation.
Seamless Collaboration: A Hallmark Feature
Collaboration is not just a feature; it's a cornerstone of the Portal's design. Robust collaboration functionality is seamlessly integrated, allowing users to actively track events, comment on them, and assign responsibilities to team members. This feature ensures that issues can be addressed swiftly, enhancing the efficiency of the entire migration process.
Diving into Business Object Details
Hopp goes beyond presenting broad strokes. It allows users to drill down into specific Business Objects, providing a treasure trove of insights:
- Successful and rejected migrations for each Business Object
- Aggregations of events related to each Business Object
- Bridging Gaps with Translation Tables
Hopp's Portal includes a dedicated section for Translation Tables as a bridge between source and target systems. Users can input translations for terms and values, ensuring accuracy. External functionality validates these tables, ensuring user-provided values align with the target system.
Events Panel: The Command Center
The Events Panel is the command center of data migration management. It is a pivotal hub where every significant occurrence is meticulously documented and managed.
The Events Panel provides users with a comprehensive overview, presenting a list of all events that transpire throughout the project's lifecycle. This archive acts as a real-time narrative, allowing stakeholders to stay informed about the progression of events from inception to resolution.
Its rich array of features ensures that stakeholders can navigate the complex landscape of data migration events with precision, agility, and a profound understanding of the project's dynamics.
This detailed list includes crucial information such as:
- Business Object
- Event Code
- Count of occurrences
- Number of items affected
- Severity classification
- Reject Root and Reject Child indications
- Event state (New, Resolved, Regression, Accepted, Active, Done)
- Assigned user and designated team area
