data migration
Last modified: Tuesday, March 12, 2002 

(1) The process of translating data from one format to another. Data migration is necessary when an organization decides to use a new computing systems or database management system that is incompatible with the current system. Typically, data migration is performed by a set of customized programs or scripts that automatically transfer the data.

(2) The process of moving data from one storage device to another. In this context, data migration is the same as Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM).
