General Motors needed a large scale data migration. Their existing Salesforce database had a large number of parent objects, with directly dependent records.
To preserve this hierarchy, we performed a stage – by – stage manual migration, using a APEX data loader. Workflow rules, fields and validation rules were all deactivated and then re-enabled on the new system.
For data security, each stage involved a complete back up between GM, CapGemini Sustain and Westbrook.
