Abstract

Data migration is defined as the transfer of data between database management systems. There are few methodologies, strategies and techniques on data migration, however, these are not applied, are unknown or mostly designed for large companies. The purpose of this research is to develop a description of the data migration process in the implantation of Enterprise IT Applications (EITA). The methodology we use is a field study, which is based on the case study methodology proposed by Yin. This field study consisted of interviews with expert consultants and staff of the SMEs that participated in a data migration process. The qualitative analysis of the data collected was carried out with the MAXQDA tool, following Kuckartz's recommendations. The resulting process details the phases, activities and actors involved in the data migration.
