  • Review as is data quality and put in place plans to address any required data quality improvements
  • Audit existing data systems and deployments and identify areas for improvement
  • Cleanse or transform data so that it can be effectively moved between systems
  • Oversee the direct migration of data, which may require minor adjustments
  • Test the migration approach and methodology before and after the migration process including the production of data validation scripts and managing error reports and/or points of corruption
  • Support the UAT for the new system to ensure that users can find and access the data.
  • Provide documentation on the strategy, the exact migration processes, risks, testing etc.
  • Develop and propose data migration best practices for this project
  • Ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and guidelines for all migrated data

The ideal candidate should
