Nimblex offers a data migration service to import your data into your Nimblex system. We follow a set-out Data Migration Plan that has proved to be effective and efficient.
The Nimblex Import Tool.
We use a Nimblex tool for importing data as records into a form. This tool supports CSV files and Excel files (also our XML format), assuming a heading in the first row of the spreadsheet.
A template can be exported to Excel and data then inserted into the right columns to be imported back into the system. As part of the scope of a project, we will provide the templates and facilitate the data migration. When the template population is complete, you preview the results and hit “Import”. Each row of your data will become a new record in the system, or will modify existing records.
To allow for a wide variation in the format of spreadsheets that need to be imported, we have a Spreadsheet Import Button. This control can be inserted onto any form, dashboard or portal. It can then form an integral part of a greater process.
Data Migration Methodology.
Nimblex will follow our data migration methodology when implementing any data migration for a client. Clients are given a detailed migration plan to fill in and follow. There will be at minimum a single test data migration and a single live data migration. If quoted there may be additional test migrations.
Source system exploration
Often Nimblex will not be involved at this stage.
Analysis of source data.
Once analysed, plan the remainder of the migration in detail.
Build any tools required for the migration (generally Excel macros or import utilities in Nimblex).
Perform the actual migration steps, both for testing and then for real.
Move to new system
I am so impressed with how easily the system is customisable to our needs, as well as intuitive. It provides us more freedom to continually innovate our processes which has a huge impact on business.Emma O’Shaughnessy-Black
