EMu: Data migration workshop

Ben Doty Software Consultant

To enable Project Managers, Information Management support staff, and Collection Managers to become familiar with the functionality of EMu at a user level and to understand the issues involved with migrating data from a legacy system to EMu.


This workshop is only available as in-house training as it is specific to the data migration needs of individual customers. A one to two day workshop; each attendee has exclusive access to a PC running the EMu client, an appropriate browser and other relevant desktop applications. PCs are networked to a server machine on which the EMu server and database engine are installed. Each attendee has access to a complete EMu system, including extensive sample data, and the material taught is reinforced by exercises using this system.
