Data Migration

Data Migration in life sciences

Migrating your data to the cloud provides scalability, cost effective data backup and archiving, and stronger security than traditional data centers. Plus, it establishes governance around data, meets GxP compliance requirements, and maintains a continuously validated state of your infrastructure and platform. 

This process should begin with cleaning up your data and avoiding the “garbage in, garbage out” syndrome. This is especially important if you are transferring data that is in various formats or is coming from multiple sources. As you identify databases, applications, and storage options, it is imperative that you have a data migration plan.

Common Challenges

We know that life sciences companies have enormous amounts of data. Common challenges among regulated companies wanting to migrate their data to the cloud include:

  • Lack of data governance know-how for GxP compliance
  • Unable to maintain a continuously compliant state of their infrastructure
  • Siloed data stored on-prem prohibits efficient collaboration

Things to Consider

While application and data migration happen separately, they do occur in tandem. Moving regulated data from multiple sources to the public cloud enables you to take advantage of data lakes and advanced analytics to drive insights and make better business decisions.
