How to Prepare: Data Mapping Overview
Data mapping consisted of examining the existing data pulled from Symphony during the July 28th data extract and fitting it into the new Polaris system designed during the profiling stage of the migration. Mapping decisions were based on: our current configuration in Symphony; feedback, survey responses, and notes made during profiling; and additional information from libraries as needed.
The migration portal now includes a section explaining the data mapping process. You can read a brief overview of the process as well as specific descriptions for the following data:
The test database will be rolled out to libraries in the next couple weeks. The mapping information on the portal will hopefully provide meaning behind how the data came to exist in the Polaris test database. Please take a moment at your convenience to review the data mapping pages on the migration portal.
