Data Migrations & Report Migrations

There is often a need to migrate data and reporting onto a new platform. This is often a result of:

  • On prem to Cloud Migrations
  • Technology advancements
  • Consolidation of platforms and tools

We assist our clients to seamlessly migrate their reports and data with minimal business disruptions.


At the core of our practice lies a commitment to bring an expert approach to data migration by incorporating the following critical success factors

Understanding the Source

Prior to commencing any migration endeavor, an exhaustive exploration of the source data is indispensable. Our team dedicates meticulous attention to dissecting every aspect, ensuring a thorough comprehension essential for a successful migration.

Embracing the Target

Equally crucial is our proficiency in the intricacies of the target platform. Drawing upon our extensive knowledge, we tailor our approach to suit the unique characteristics and requirements of your chosen platform, guaranteeing optimal outcomes.

Collaborating with Business

Recognizing that data migration transcends technical boundaries, we actively engage with your business stakeholders. This collaborative effort ensures that priorities are aligned, and decisions regarding data quality issues are made with careful consideration of your organizational objectives.

Automating Testing

Central to our methodology is the integration of automated testing processes. By leveraging cutting-edge automation tools, we uphold the integrity and reliability of your migrated data, mitigating the risk of errors and discrepancies.

Contingency Planning

Despite meticulous planning, unforeseen challenges may arise during migration. We pre-emptively establish robust contingency measures to swiftly address any data quality issues, safeguarding the continuity of your operations.

Implementing Change Freeze

To preserve data integrity throughout the migration process, we advocate for a temporary freeze on changes at the source. This proactive measure serves to maintain consistency and coherence, minimising disruptions.

Executing Parallel Runs

Whenever feasible, we advocate for the execution of parallel runs in both environments. This meticulous approach facilitates comprehensive testing and validation, ensuring a seamless transition and minimising discrepancies.

Phased Migration Approach

For endeavours of greater magnitude, we endorse a phased approach to migration. This strategic approach allows for smoother transitions, mitigating risks associated with complex data ecosystems.


Data Migration | Education: University

Business Problem

  • A university had made a strategic decision to migrate off the Tableau platform and move all reports to Power BI.
  • This would reduce licensing costs and improve the ability to train the business.
  • The effort to migrate reports was proving to be a challenge.


  • BI3 successfully migrated all reports at a fraction of the normal price quoted by other vendors.
  • This migration was achieved in a matter of months with no disruption to the business.
  • The project management and communication on the program was deemed exceptional with excellent visibility provided to all stakeholders.

Why Bi3?

Automation : Reduced the manual effort to migrate using automation.

Knowledge : We have knowledge of both Tableau and Power BI. By knowing both systems we were able to anticipate the changes required.

Highly competitive rates : Made Possible by our repeatable process which leverages our growing library of research.

In addition to our repeatable processes, our ability to leverage offshore resources also played a part in keeping the cost down.

“When we have all data online it will be great for humanity. It is a prerequisite to solving many problems that humankind faces.
