Why You Need to Automate Your File Transfer Migration

By: Vipin Mittal | August 14th, 2020

We get it. The idea of migrating a legacy file transmission solution can seem like a daunting task. After all, it’s your business’ critical files and data sets and a potential impact to your partners is never an ideal situation. But it shouldn’t feel overwhelming. 

Some organizations prefer to go the self-migration route, which can open you up to potential errors and inaccuracies, not to mention the impact on your workforce who are already managing your platform at maximum capacity. However, thanks to technological and process advancements, there’s been a shift towards engaging technology partners who can streamline and automate the process.

The Benefits of Automating

Automated file transfer migrations are quickly gaining popularity due to their cost-benefits and rate of accuracy. In fact, with an automated migration, organizations can expect to reduce their migration cost by at least by 35% and reduce the time to migrate.

A secure, auditable managed file transfer solution will enable you to mitigate the risk of data breaches while  automation can help you get to that state relatively quickly. It will also allow you to focus on running your business instead of manually migrating partners on your own.
