FYI, this story is more than a year old

Syniti, the enterprise data management specialist, has announced the first of multiple updates to its Syniti Knowledge Platform for this year.

Building on the existing platform, the company is introducing the fully cloud-based version of Syniti Advanced Data Migration, now called Syniti Migrate.

The new update enables customers to have more control of their data. Overall, according to the company, Syniti Migrate hopes to support the development of organisations in achieving their digital transformation initiatives.

According to Syniti, every digital transformation is underpinned by a massive need for data transformation, which can be time consuming and complex.

To combat this, Syniti Migrate enables enterprise customers to realise value faster from critical migration and consolidation projects such as mergers, acquisitions and divestitures and ERP migrations including the journey to SAP S/4HANA.

A modern, cloud-first architecture allows businesses to process and persist data where they want, with increased security.

Customers can now choose their data migration working and staging environments, with current connections to different databases and flexible deployment options.

Customer, partner and user feedback to the previous version provided new updates and enhancements, including:

  • More intelligent code auto-generation: Writing more code better helps reduce technical code development by up to 80%, freeing up resources to work on higher value tasks.
  • Higher quality data can be delivered faster in the migration: Intelligent matching and harmonisation with more than 99% accuracy.
  • Pre-loaded best practice content: Including mappings, designs and rules to help accelerate migrations.
  • Intelligent metadata scanning and profiling: Active metadata scanning identifies and autocorrects dataset errors, with analysis to identify, action and resolve data anomalies; helping to accelerate processes and enhance analytics functions.

Syniti Migrate is available as part of the Syniti Knowledge Platform. It also will be resold by key partners, including as SAP Advanced Data Migration by Syniti, an SAP premium-certified cloud-based data migration solution extension, and used by Syniti's own team of data-focused experts as well as its global partner ecosystem.

Syniti president Asia Pacific and Japan, Gordon Lam, says, “Digital transformation is accelerating at a rate never before, making data invaluable to organisations.

"APAC businesses that pivoted during the pandemic will continue to evolve and leverage data to remain competitive in the rapidly changing business landscape. Syniti remains committed to enable businesses to stay ahead of their data management curve to harness the true value from data.

Syniti chief executive officer Kevin Campbell says, “We took millions of human hours, our best practices and years of experience in data migrations, to make our original data migration platform.

"What we've done here is take what is arguably the best migration solution on the planet and made it faster and more secure, so our customers realise both short and long-term benefits in their transformation efforts.

Deloitte Consulting LLP senior manager Harpreet Singh says, “All of our customers are in the midst of some type of digital transformation. To enable this, they need new technology and new ways of working.

"Syniti Migrate seamlessly fits into this transformation strategy because it processes data where they want it, bringing the intelligence and automation they need with the stringent enterprise security required.
