- Data migration methods

- Supported methods of migrating data into Microsoft CRM

- Necessary skills for managing data migration projects

- Management challenges

- Success factors

- Planning steps

Lab 1: Mapping Data

- This lab asks each student to restore a backup of a customer's source database, and map source data into Microsoft CRM Account and Contact entities.

- Students will use the Data Migration Pack's Detailed Data Planning spreadsheet to map the entities. Mapping of the Account entity is provided as an example; students will be required to map the Contact entity.After completing this module, students will be able to:

- Identify key best practices to follow in data migration planning

- Determine the skills necessary to manage a data migration project

- Identify the challenges management faces when planning and executing a data migration

- Determine the approaches, techniques, and key knowledge areas that guarantee a successful data migration project

- Use the tools provided in the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Data Migration Pack for mapping a source database schema to Microsoft CRM

Chapter 2: Installing the Data Migration Pack

This chapter examines the hardware and software requirements that must be in place prior to installing the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Data Migration Pack

Lessons

- Installation scenarios

- Installing the Data Migration Pack

- Data Migration Framework tools

- Preparing Microsoft CRM for data migration

- Preparing Business Contact Manager for data migration

Lab 1: Installing the Data Migration Pack

- This lab asks each student to install the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Data Migration Pack within a virtual PC environment, and then confirm that the installation was successful.

Lab 2: Installing the Data Migration Pack

- This lab asks each student to prepare Microsoft CRM for data migration. This includes importing customizations required in the lab scenario, backing up databases, pausing workflows and sales processes.After completing this module, students will be able to:

- Install the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Data Migration Pack

- Identify the Data Migration Framework tools

- Identify the steps that are required to prepare Microsoft CRM for data migration

- Set up the source database for the Data Migration Wizard for Outlook with Business Contact Manager

Chapter 3: Loading Source Data into the CDF Database

This chapter examines the steps involved in initializing and loading source data into the Common Data Format (CDF) database, and the necessary information needed to complete these steps.

Lessons

- CDF Database Overview

- CDF Database Structure

- How to load data into the CDF Database

- Initializing the CDF Database

- Data that can migrate into Microsoft CRM

- How specific data types are migrated

- Maintaining data relationships

Lab 1: CDF Initialization

- This lab asks each student to first run a series of SQL queries against key tables in the CDF database. Then students run the CDF Initialization Wizard to initialize the CDF database. Following this, students re-run the same set of queries to see the changes made to the database by the Initialization wizard.

Lab 2: CDF Data Load

- This lab asks each student to load a set of Accounts and Contacts into the CDF database. These accounts and contacts will be cleansed and migrated into Microsoft CRM in later chapters. In this lab, students will create unique integer primary keys for the Account and Contact CDF tables, add a custom attribute to the Contact table, create a set of SQL views that will be used to facilitate data loading, and run a series of SQL scripts to load the accounts and contacts into the CDF database and maintain their data relationships.After completing this module, students will be able to:

- Identify the entity tables in the CDF database in which to load the source data

- Use the Microsoft CRM Correlation tables

- Identify the entities that can be migrated into Microsoft CRM

Lab 2: Running a Full Migration

- Once students verified in the prior lab that the test migration succeeded, they will run a Full migration to load all of the Account and Contact records into Microsoft CRM. This will require that each student restore the databases which they backed up in the prior lab, run the full migration, and then verify their results.After completing this module, students will be able to:

- Identify each of the tasks performed by the CDF Migration Wizard
