The introduction of new technologies, architectures and systems or organizational restructuring often requires a company to reorganize its databases either by transferring data from old applications to the new ones, or reorganize data in an existing application according to the new organizational structure. Migration of data, services, and processes to the Cloud platform must be achieved based on well-defined models/strategies. Every migration model involves specific objectives, according to the policies of the organization, the control, and security of information. It must be achieved by keeping the optimal balance between data accuracy, speed of migration, time of non-operation and minimal costs.
