Migration Services for data

Simplify your data migration process with our assistance in addressing complexity, disruption, system performance, hosting, availability and data integrity


What are your data migration needs? Globally, organizations are implementing new storage and data solutions in order to help them derive more value from their available data, reduce costs, simplify storage management, and enhance business resilience. All this often requires complex data migration requirements. IBM can help.


Our services combine the experience of IBM services professionals with Softek migration tools such as Softek®Transparent Data Migration Facility (TDMF™), Softek Logical Data Migration Facility (LDMF™), and IBM System Storage™ SAN Volume Controller. We can help you with project planning and management, and can provide technical assistance for migrating data-including hardware environment refreshes, storage reclamation, consolidation and other key infrastructure initiatives. Our experience can help you mitigate project risk and more quickly utilize new storage and data platforms to achieve IT and business results.

During implementation of these solutions, it is important to ensure that data transfers to new storage platforms are performed accurately and in a timely manner-with minimal disruption to business operations. However, tight deadline pressures and complex environments can make it hard to execute a smooth data migration, especially if the required tools, processes and expertise are not in house.

IBM Migration Services for data, part of IBM Storage and Data Product Services, can provide resources, technology and expertise to help you simplify your data migration process in open-systems and mainframe environments. We can help you address issues associated with complexity, disruption, system performance, hosting, availability and data integrity. And we can plan for and execute migration services for both disk- and tape-based data. If you desire only to license software-based technology to enable your staff to perform the data migration projects, we can help meet that need as well.
