Copious amounts of files and data can be generated during Prefeed (Front Ending Engineering Design) activities. During Prefeed, organizations focus on technical requirements, estimated costs, and potential risk evaluations for a proposed project. Prefeed activities, files and data packages are essential to ensure:
Prefeed proves development feasibility, and ultimately narrows down selection and options, which then become the basis of the project FEED.
As a result of Prefeed activities, the development is ready to enter into the FEED phase, with utilization of well-defined Prefeed option(s). Reaching FEED is a major milestone for any project and can also be accompanied by file and data challenges, such as:
Organizations can tackle the challenges which encompass Prefeed migrations into FEED project environments by following the steps outlined below.
Step 1 Identification: Prefeed files and data for migration to FEED
Firstly, organizations need to identify Prefeed files and metadata within structured and unstructured environments which will be progressed into the FEED phase of the project. This includes identification and quarantine of highly sensitive information and archival of non-critical information - , thus maintaining access should that information be required at a later date. Organizations should also consider and manage the following:
Step 2: Target System Requirements
Once files have been identified for migration to FEED, the next step is to identify the target system where these files will reside. Organizations should consider the following before migrating files into a new system:
Step 3: Populating system attributions, and applying security protocols
Organizations need to identify migration tools which enable the migration of files and data from structured, unstructured environments and from system to system while performing the following during migrations to systems:
Different document types have different attribution requirements and some content may need to be converted or repurposed from one format to another before migration, such as:
Data-wrangling service benefits:
Organizations need to collaborate with IT partners that can offer global best practices, innovative automated AI solutions, and domain expertise to protect and retain the integrity of critical data and files during migration.
Data wrangling services are ideally situated to assist with file and data interrogation, which include the identification, deduplication, metadata extraction, metadata transformation and migration of files and data to target systems while adhering to system attribution alignment requirements.
We have teamed our data-wrangling technologies and resources with our Global IM. SME services to manage the following during migration:
