T2S Migration Platform

The T2S Migration Platform (T2S MPF) is a software platform that can access, transform and validate data from the most diverse IT systems and process it into a format that can be understood by another IT system.

Data migration and data integration

The recipient system can be an existing system, but also a new system that will eventually replace the old one. The first situation is referred to as a data integration (or interfacing), and can be bi-directional, while the second is called data migration (or conversion).

The T2S MPF can link up with external reference sources via SOA standards to perform data quality control and cleansing tasks.

Transforming your corporate data

The recipient system determines the format in which the output of the T2S MPF is expected. While any format can be delivered, the standard output generated by the platform is W3C XML compliant. This kind of output is intelligible to machines, but also to humans.

How Does it Work?

1. Extract relevant data

Your legacy system carries a lot of data. Some of it is relevant to your new solution, but some of it is not. It takes experience and expertise to know what matters, and how to take the right data from the legacy system. People that know where to look do this quickly, while operations keep going.

The T2S Migration Platform can access data from the most diverse IT systems and process it into a format that can be understood by another IT system.

External reference sources can also be linked to the platform to perform data quality control and cleansing tasks.

2. Transform data to fit the new solution

Your new solution often has a different logic than the legacy system. The new data structure might not be ready to make use of the historical data. It takes the sharp eye of an analyst to see how the data must be transformed to fit the new solution.

The output generated by the T2S MPF can be independently validated before delivery to the recipient system; for that purpose, the platform uses XML schemas (XSD), which are “contracts” defining the requirements that have to be fulfilled by the data in order to be accepted by the recipient system.

All identified errors are displayed in the Data Quality Monitor. Once we have ironed out the flaws in your data, we are ready for the data transport.

3. Load and validate data

The platform acts as a link for a seamless data transport between your old and new solutions. Our approach guarantees accurate, consistent and complete data.

A data migration or integration is an iterative process. This is due to the fact that the data requirements are not easy to determine ahead of time and can be modified repeatedly during the course of a project. To be able to adjust to this continuously changing environment, the T2S MPF uses self-sufficient migration modules that can be called upon from different profiles. Each profile references a unique combination of these modules, which simplifies management tasks and reduces the likelihood of human errors. Furthermore, different versions of the platform output can be generated in parallel, for instance for different releases of the system during the project.

Connect and access your corporate data with the T2S Migration Platform

The main input for the T2S Migration Platform (MPF) is data from existing IT systems. That data frequently resides in the database of a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS), which is why the T2S MPF comes with standard connectivity to the most common RDBMS systems such as Oracle, DB/2, SQL Server, Informix, Sybase, MySQL and PostgreSQL. That being said, any structured file format can be used as input for the T2S MPF.

External reference sources can also be connected to the T2S MPF for validation and enrichment of data. An example of this is the European VAT API “VIES” with which you can verify the validity of a VAT number.
