NFI's Data Migration and Data Transformation Consultants can help you with doing almost whatever you need in moving data from one application to another, from an older legacy system to a new one, cleaning up data, eliminating duplicate records, transforming field types, and much more. Sometimes you may not even need to move data, but rather extract/transform and load (ETL) it from a 3rd party source of information. We can do that for you as well.
Here are some examples of NFI's ETL work:
Harbinger Corporation was using an Executive Contact Management Database named Sharkware. This application, written in Sybase, had become too cumbersome for Harbinger to use on a day-to-day basis. In addition, Harbinger wanted to increase the scope of usage from just a select few executives and managers to the entire company and make it a corporate-wide contact database.
Narayan Sengupta of NFI migrated the entire Sharkware database to Outlook per the client's specifications. The project was completed 40% ahead of schedule and under budget.
Another example was the Italian Trade Commission, which had a need for taking selected US trade statistics and extract them to a report to be submitted to their clients. This required going through a 150,000 record HTSUS trade database CD, extracting just the desired 300 trade codes, and then ranking the Italian exports within those 300 versus the other top 5 countries. Previously, the Italian Trade Commission had been spending hours gathering this data and then re-entering the information into the final MS Word report. We found a way to expedite and automate the process, and make the data 100% accurate. This process was so successful that the Thai Trade Commission requested the same type of report, but for Thailand.
