through every stage of their data migration journey
Project 1: Multiple teams
MDLman was asked to project manage both the internal and external teams (including some offshore) for the implementation of a new cloud-based LMS. The project involved extracting the people and organisation data from two different sources (SAP and MS Domain Database) into an Infomatica database. From there the MDLman consultant transformed the information into the correct format to load it into the new LMS. This involved testing the data, loading it into a test environment for the new LMS and then setting up a regular daily data feed process. Before MDLman was engaged the project had suffered multiple delays in setting up the basic data feed process. Within 10 days we had achieved the first data loads after a 5 month delay.
Project 1: Compliance reporting issues
The client was experiencing problems with their cloud based LMS. They had failed to maintain data integrity, and this was causing issues around training compliance reporting. Our consultant investigated and found the root problem in a daily data feed. This was causing issues with:
- User enrolment – showing up as Proxy Enrolment failures
- Issues with the availability of
- training materials
- tests on the materials covered
- course curricula
- Custom reports
Using the MDLresolver, our consultants successfully resolved all data issues and data integrity problems within 6 weeks. Without this rapid turnaround the client would have faced potential training compliance issues.
Project 2: Data integrity issues
The project involved the use of MDLresolver and our consultant team. The client encountered data integrity issues during the deployment of a Global eLearning system. MDLman’s consultant used MDLresolver as deduplication software and for data integrity checking of all 30,000 courses in the Course Catalogue. This enabled them to implement a process to extract the Course Catalogue data, verify it and update all the courses with the correct information. This was a major success and led to a dramatic improvement in data quality and reduced the Course Catalog by 60%, which saved unnecessary time spent on maintenance and improved the management reporting.
