Consulting industry veteran Dave Gordon’s guide to migrating transactions and other records for system implementation teams is now available as a Kindle book.
Las Vegas, Nevada – A new book from Practicing IT Project Manager Press, The Data Conversion Cycle: A guide to migrating transaction and other records for system implementation teams, tackles the subject with a generalized methodology, presented in a decidedly non-technical fashion. Author David A. Gordon distills the lessons learned from literally dozens of ERP and SaaS implementations into a book that manages to be both comprehensive and compact. The book is available now in the Kindle format from Amazon.com.
“When asked for the most common sources of problems for software system implementation projects, experienced system implementers and consultants always list data conversion among their top three,” says Gordon. The book expands on a series of blog posts on The Practicing IT Project Manager website. Originally written for his project manager following, Gordon extensively revised the content for a general business audience.
