JMR Software is proud to announce a partnership with The Data Company Group to provide JMR’s Data Migration-as-a-Service offering to its UK clients and prospects. 

Mike Richards, CEO of JMR Software, says: “In order for your business and all stakeholders to have confidence in a new system, achieving a successful migration is critical. The Data Company Group was looking for best-of-breed data migration services, and we are looking forward to developing a successful partnership.

“Over the past 30 years, JMR has been protecting the movement of data and significantly mitigating data migration risks for numerous projects in the UK. Our team’s expertise has also led to a long and enviable track record of completing every project on time and in budget. We achieve this by using a proven data migration methodology and our unique data migration application.”

The partnership in the UK has been founded on a UK Guidewire implementation and is expected to increase JMR Software's revenues and drive new levels of growth while expanding its channels into the UK market. JMR is rapidly expanding its data migration practice based on increasing worldwide demand for its Data Migration- as-a-Service offering, BITSHIFT. 

Kali Bagary, the founder and CEO of The Data Company Group, says: “Many people say that ‘data is the new oil’, but I believe this is only the case if it can be easily accessed, interrogated and used to predict better outcomes, whether this is increasing revenue or profit, or improving customer experience. Far too many companies have data, but it is often in difficult-to-reach, disparate locations. 

"In working with JMR, we will be able to help companies migrate data into new systems rapidly, while reducing their clients’ risk. Our focus is solely on enabling companies to optimise their data to deliver the best possible return for all their stakeholders.” 

Bloor Research puts the failure rate of data migration projects at 38%, while Gartner says more than 50% of data migration projects will exceed budget and are likely to result in some form of business disruption because of flawed execution.

“Our strategy is to continue to grow strong and strategic partnerships around the world with companies which need to give their clients absolute assurance of data migration success,” says Richards.
