Student Information System Migration

Our week in Boston with Veracross went well, and we are now steaming through a very important stage of the migration. Our database manager is carefully going through each Filemaker Pro file, scripting as export that only removes columns of data (not calculations) and then documenting the columns of information after each export. We are also dropping unusued data as we progress.

By 1 February, we should have exported data from all files, scripts to do it again at the start of July (after the yearly rollover) and documentation for all data sets. When the final export comes, we will just run the scripts again. In February, we turn over all of the data to Veracross, so they can start building the black boxes to import it into Veracross, create alignment of their systems with our data, and then start working with us on interfaces and printed reports.

This is a big process, and we will have many modules coming online at once, but I hope the work we are doing now will make the data as clear as possible for the Veracross engineers.
