There is no single correct answer to how much data should be moved from an legacy application to the Cloud but let’s discuss the process for doing this. You will first want to look at your organization’s historical data requirements. For example, determine whether or not you will need the old data at your fingertips or if your users can look it up in the old system. Some companies maintain access to the legacy system and keep older data on it. Next, do a data quality review to determine if your historical data is clean and/or valuable. You definitely don’t want to clutter the new system with bad data. If older data is needed in the new system and it’s clean and valuable, by all means, work from a data migration plan and load it in.
