HOME > SERVICES > CONVERSION
What is conversion? Conversion is the process of taking your data from your old system(s) and making it work within Revolution Online. This doesn’t mean we cram your ideas into our ideas. It means that we analyze your data until we understand which elements can easily fit into Revolution as is, and for which elements we’ll need to create a new place.
Our conversions are faster because we start with your data. We begin with your actual data, not with lots of meetings where we talk about your data. We’ve found that the data itself gives much more insight into how it is currently structured (and how "clean" it is) than any amount of up-front discussion. Using the insight from this initial analysis, we launch a series of meetings to discuss business rules, reporting requirements, integration, and ultimate implementation.
Our conversions are also faster because Revolution Online's relational design makes it infinitely flexible. The flexibility of Revolution Online means there’s no need to try to jam all of your data elements into a pre-existing structure. Relational design allows us to easily store as much of any kind of information in the structure that works best for your data.
Tweaking your future together. Effective communication, participation and partnership is the best recipe for a successful conversion. After our initial analysis, we meet with you regularly to determine your business rules, reporting requirements, and how to best tweak the Revolution Online user interface to meet your specific needs. Throughout the process, we’re keenly involved in getting to know your organization -- what you do, how you do it, and your plans for the future -- so we can provide the best database solution for you today, tomorrow, and for all the years to come.
