Moving terabytes of data, or groups of pioneers westward, or flocks of geese north, isn’t simply a question of following a leader who has been that way before. The route has to be scheduled, and the method has to be planned, whether it’s a means of transportation or a new technology. All those involved in the migration have to be briefed beforehand and coordinated during the process. Everyone else affected has to be considered, before, during and after the transition.
FindHelp Information Services delivers the 211 service in Toronto, linking individuals to a multitude of community, social, health and other services. Come hear how FindHelp migrated its resource material from print to online format, and learn some tips for planning a successful migration.
Light refreshments will be served.
