Data migration to the new ERP system

Have you ever been through the process of data migration and cleansing?

If so, you know perfectly well that this process is not so easy, fast and pleasant.
Most often, companies simplify this process by migrating only open entries (the so-called Opening Balance), which may consist of:
1) Open purchase orders (BO)
2) Open purchase invoices (BO)
3) Open sales orders (BO)
4) Open sales invoices (BO)
5) Open release orders (BO)
6) Open assignment orders (BO)
7) Orders in progress (BO)
8) Warehouse indexes with stock level> 0 (BO)

In addition, data are also included in the data import:
9) Active shopping price lists
10) Active sales price lists
11) Goods
12) Finished goods
13) Folded goods (sets)
14) Recipes of finished products
15) Technologies of manufacturing finished products
16) B2B clients
17) Suppliers, including service providers
18) Fixed assets
19) Air

Of course, there is the question of historical records such as:
1) The history of purchases and sales of a given commodity
2) Sales history for a given customer
3) Purchase history with a given supplier
This can be done in three ways:
1) Use the old system – unfortunately it is very tedious and takes an additional time slowing down users’ work
2) Transfer historical records to the new system – unfortunately this is an expensive solution and not always feasible, due to differences in the architecture of the new and old system
3) Use Business Intelligence tools – thanks to this, you can compare data between records in the old and new system. This is currently the most recommended method.
