Compliance and business risk plays a significant role in the implementation of corporate information systems. The risks associated with these systems are, in general, well known. However, as part of the implementation process, many of these information systems will be populated with legacy data and the compliance and business risks associated with data and content migrations are not necessarily understood.

In this context, risks associated with data migration are a direct result of migration error. Further, industry testing strategies to mitigate such risk, or more specifically data migration error, lack consistency and are far from deterministic.

This article offers thoughts and recommendations on how to create a more robust and consistent data migration testing strategy.
