Data Migration from Legacy Systems

Companies constantly strive to increase profitability, reduce cost and eliminate risks in global market. PLM has become key capability for best-in-class companies that develops high quality and innovative products.

Quite a few companies, many of them large enterprises grown over years, are using complex legacy systems that are disconnected, rigid on process improvements, and weaken growth initiatives. The investment to replace these legacy systems may look higher, but as organizations look for increased growth, revenue, meet new markets, etc., they have to undertake deeper thinking about cost of carrying those legacy systems and their financial plus business impacts.


Having led many legacy systems migrations and transforming PLM solutions for large companies, we developed a systematic approach to help executives-CXOs make the right decision about legacy systems migration.

SCONCE Legacy migration methodology: Stage gate migration process enabling smooth transformation of legacy systems


SCONCE Legacy Migration KPI
  • Legacy migrations with low or no downtime to end-users
  • Unique data cleansing to remove over 30% duplicate data including CAD models
  • Tens of custom tools developed in-house for migration, extraction, mapping & validation
  • Over 25% reduction in migration project timeline
  • On-time, within budget project execution

Unique Data Cleansing Solution

We provide unique solutions that address critical requirements such as “Data Cleansing”  during legacy systems migration.

  • We use tools such as Bingo! 3D shape based classification tool providing unparalleled ability to identify duplicate CAD objects and supports cleansing them before migration.
  • The ROI for excluding duplicates can be easily calculated based on significant reduction in cost on inventory for example.  According to the Parts Standardization & Management Committee, each part could cost between $5000 and $20000 over its lifetime.
  • The tool enables users to visually inspect the indexed models and help make the right decisions about which data is important and which can be eliminated.


  • In addition, the solution creates a classification of components that helps to move the classified parts from the Restricted Product containers to common Library containers for re-use by all products.

Ensuring Success

It starts with the humble mindset to deliver solution that has end-to-end perspective but focused on doing every step right and do that from the beginning.
