Enterprise data migration was a common practice amongst businesses in corporate America. Organizations chose to migrate databases for a variety of reasons including trying to reduce costs by moving to cloud-based databases, seeking specific database features and functionality, or their existing systems were simply outdated and unable to keep up with the demands of the business (Alooma 2019). As companies continued to expand and evolve, features such as agile data migrations and integration capabilities became more integral. Company acquisitions and departmental mergers were common catalysts for data migrations. Upon these occurrences, the responsibility had been given to the IT department to migrate and integrate the data into the new environment to allow end users to complete daily functions. Data functions included on the front end allowed users to easily pull, clean, and organize data for the end user. Ultimately, DataGrate was conceived to provide data solutions to both the technology professional and the end user.
