Archive & Purge
When you’re planning for modernization, whether it be via an upgrade project or migration to Cloud, it’s vitally important to look at something you may have overlooked for many years… your JD Edwards data! Oracle recommends archiving as part of any JD Edwards upgrade project. Through our own experiences, we have seen how old and dirty data present problems during the upgrade and migration process, and not just in terms of increased time to perform the project. You’ll experience a lack of quality and referential data integrity generally exhibited by older data that will cause upgrade and conversion routines to fail.
If you are on the pathway to Cloud now or in the future, incorporate data archiving into your strategy. The larger your data footprint the more costly the storage and possibly cloud computing power needed to process it.
Take the time to understand your data; where it is, how old it is, and the business value of it so that you can formulate and implement a meaningful data retention policy. As you look to modernize your ERP, seize this opportunity to clean the data you are transforming and to tidy up your system. Start as you mean to go on, with a lean and clean, better performing system.
