Abstract: Data migration, at its core, appears deceptively simple—a process aimed at transferring data from an old system to a new one. When performed well, labs are better positioned to derive more value from their laboratory information management systems (LIMS) and their data. However, LIMS data migration can be quite complex and risky if not executed correctly. Between lost data, data format conversion complexities, data security concerns, and increased costs, LIMS data migration failures can threaten business continuity and push labs past the point of no return. Hence, understanding the complexities and following precise steps are crucial to ensure a successful migration that not only preserves data integrity but also enables enhanced operational efficiency and innovation.
