Best Practices for Data Migration to Salesforce

Today, CRM is shifting toward cloud computing. Instead of buying and maintaining expen­sive servers and software to manage customer conversations and information, companies use Web-based (“cloud”) appli­cations to run their CRM and enjoying a higher return on investment. New technologies are making it easier to provide high reliability, performance and security with an uptime exceeding 99.9%, blazing data access speed (less than 300 ms) and industry certifications such as ISO27001.

What’s the best way to migrate your critical data from an outdated legacy system directly into Salesforce? Data integrity, record tracking and a smooth transition is what makes your overall conversion a success. Our consultants ensure the process is fast, reliable and seamless.

Whether this is your first time using Salesforce or you’re merging and consolidating with another organization, we’re here to assist with planning and executing the data migration process using tools like:

  • Data Loader command line with prebuilt db connectors
  • Data Loader.io
  • Informatica
  • Custom Migration using SQL Server/Oracle for staging/cleansing

Based on analysis of the Salesforce data you plan to migrate, we can create a custom solution, drawing on our expertise and extensive experience for best results.  Your plan is a repeatable process that can run in the staging sandbox environment, be analyzed, reported and once accepted, moved over to production.

Key Considerations for Your Salesforce Data Migration

Some important points to consider as you begin planning for your data migration:

  • Is your data clean and complete?
  • Are there any duplicates that need to be removed?
  • Do you need all the data you currently store or is it time to make changes?
  • Should you add any additional/custom fields?
  • Who is using this data and where does it originate?
  • Have you confirmed that the naming conventions are consistent throughout the data?
  • Do you want to do any data transformations (e.g. NC to North Carolina)?
