Size matters... in data migration

Data amounts can influence your migration project – or even should, as they might determine the approach to be chosen for the migration process: The sheer amount of data to be migrated has implications for the complexity of the project and the methods to be applied.  

In some cases, it might make sense to migrate a whole system at once, whereas in other cases it might be useful to consolidate data from different projects into one target system step by step.  

The total volume of such a migration project, and the way of proceeding, might also be a question of storage space needed or used, as this is also a question of costs. It might thus be advisable to exclude data not needed any more from migration. Whether it is expendable or not should be assessed beforehand, of course.
