Reporting remains the BI backbone in most enterprises today, yet the majority of reporting systems are outdated, costly, and difficult to maintain. Organizations have two options — either stay in a legacy system or migrate and modernize. The risks involved with replacing these systems are often significant, and the migrations can be very complex.
Migration is difficult for three reasons: it’s painful to scope, it’s a lot of work, and there is no margin for error. Because there are so many reports, each with their own design, data sources, and delivered to different people, the scoping process alone can be a huge undertaking. Reporting systems are often deeply embedded in day-to-day operations and processes that are critical for a business to run. Migration must occur quickly and perfectly — on the first try. Mistakes in the process can lead to a halt in critical information reaching an employee or customer.
That begs the question, why modernize? For one, it’s less infrastructure to manage. Legacy systems rely on old technologies that can’t integrate with modern systems, making them difficult and time-consuming to maintain. Modern reporting systems can connect to the latest data sources, support charts, and visualizations, and run in containers. Additionally, modernization allows you to have more flexibility and experience significant cost savings.
While migrating and modernization has a reputation for being difficult, new software and proven processes can make it less painful. To make a successful migration happen, you need a blueprint that outlines each step in assessing your current environment and how you will refactor it for the target technology that you will migrate to.
