3 CIO Insights for Storage Data Migration: An Interview with Wim Van Poelvoorde


Just about any major IT initiative you can think of involves migrating storage data. It’s a complex task, yet it’s often assigned to inexperienced personnel, and the risks it carries are frequently underestimated. According to a recent Frost & Sullivan study titled How Data Migration Services Can Help you Maximize ROI while Minimizing Business Risk, a badly managed migration may “affect user access, application run time and even revenue. In the worst case scenario, data may be lost or corrupted, requiring costly repairs and workarounds, invoking fines for non-compliance, and triggering payments to customers or suppliers for missed service level agreements.”


HP storage expert Wim Van Poelvoorde knows data migration inside and out.  I caught up with Wim recently to talk about three most important insights for CIOs contemplating a data migration. Listen to the podcast below to learn how you can avoid the unpleasant surprises that too often lurk in the migration task.
