Acquiring a company / companies hold promises of growth and synergy, they often come with significant challenges, one of the most critical being data migration.

It’s crucial to plan your finances carefully when merging companies. This means creating a budget to handle potential costs associated with data migration and prevent unexpected financial bumps along the way. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect:

  • Infrastructure Costs: Budget for upgrading or expanding your IT setup to accommodate the merged systems. This may include buying new hardware, upgrading servers, improving networks, and covering data center expenses.
  • Software Costs: Factor in the expenses for software licenses and subscriptions needed for the merged IT system. This includes operating systems, productivity tools, business apps, security software, and any specialized programs for your new operations.
  • Data Migration Costs: Allocate funds for moving data around, including extracting, transforming, and loading it into the new system. This might involve hiring experts like AppleTech and may require using migration software.
  • Change Management and Training: Most important part is to train the employees and also make them mentally ready to accept the change. Consider the costs of training employees and managing changes, such as communication materials, engagement initiatives, and consultants to help with the transition.
  • Testing and Quality Assurance: Budget for testing tools and resources needed to check the new system thoroughly before and after launch. If needed take assistance of a third party for unbiased opinion.
  • Security Enhancements: Include expenses for beefing up security measures, like assessments, firewalls, encryption software, and staff training. Ensuring all the employees follow best practices to avoid data loss and data leaks.
  • Post- Data Migration Support: Plan for additional resources or external support from Experts to help with any issues or questions that may arise after the migration is complete. Opt for a normalizing period of at least one year to be on the safer side.
  • Project Management: Budget for managing the whole migration project, including personnel, tools, and resources for planning, coordinating, and monitoring progress.
  • Hiring Experts like us: Set aside money for consultants or system integrators who can help with the IT migration. Appletech is into Data Migration business for more than a decade and has served a handful of Clients for data migration.
