Migrating from Other Reporting Tools

Quickly and Easily Migrate Reports from Existing Reporting Applications

Migrating from Other Reporting Tools

With Orbit Reporting and Analytics, you can easily convert and migrate reports from your existing reporting tools — in addition to up-leveling your reporting capabilities.

Data-driven decision making is more important now than ever.

But are your business users truly able to get the full picture of what is happening in your company?

Like many, you may be frustrated with your reporting tools and processes. However, you may also have concerns about moving to a new reporting and analytics solution.

Here are some questions to ask when you develop an action plan for migrating to a new reporting and analytics tool:

  • What data sources do you need to access when you generate reports?
  • What reports and information are the most important to you?
  • Does the shortlisted reporting tool provide any mechanism to migrate your existing reports?
  • What are your company’s current and future reporting needs?
  • What is the availability of your IT and other resources to support the transition?
  • What level of data security and governance do you need?
  • What are your needs regarding integrating with specific applications such as your ERP, CRM, Excel, etc.?
  • What is your required deployment timeline and time to value?
  • Which of your existing reports do you need to migrate?

With the wrong approach, migrating to a new reporting and analytics platform can be a slow and painful process that frustrates your IT team and end users.

Let's face it, most reporting tools won’t easily integrate with your ERP system and other key business applications.

If your solution isn’t compatible, you’ll face ongoing performance issues that turn what should be a business-friendly tool into a frustrating experience for many.

You also might struggle with migration and deployment delays that increase your costs while preventing you from realizing value. In today’s fast-paced business environment, you can’t put your operations on hold while your teams trudge their way through a difficult implementation.

Orbit walks with you every step of the way to take the complexity out of your report migrations – while ensuring that you get the most value from your reporting platform in the shortest possible time.

Migrating from legacy reporting applications to a modern business intelligence and reporting solution can increase your productivity while delivering the agility that your BI teams require.
