Data Strategies International

About Us

DSI is a leading provider of large-scale data migration and conversion services to Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies that need to upgrade from old technologies to new ones.

In the last 18 years of experience with media conversion and data migration services, DSI has developed highly efficient processes and tools to perform the migration of text and image documents archived by most systems to newer document archive systems. We are vendor neutral and market our services, directly, through software vendors, hardware vendors, and system integrators.

Off-line Conversion

The company’s off-line conversion services are unique in that they use technologies and processes that do not impact the client’s day-to-day operation. Our off-line approach allows us to perform large-scale data migrations and conversions in the shortest time and the most cost effective way. The company’s migration tools support most popular document archiving products. We always provide our customers with comprehensive audit reports of the migration process. Moreover, we protect the data we process by adhering to strict security procedures, including chain-of-custody and, when needed, data encryption. Processing can be at our secure Houston facility or at customer site.

Document Archive Migration

For Document Archive migration, we can process terabytes of data stored on optical platters, magnetic tapes or other storage media by most legacy archive systems and convert it to a format ready to be imported into the target archive. The conversion process could involve the extraction of millions of documents (Line-data, AFP, PCL, Metacode, TIFF Images, PDF, etc.) and associated metadata; the needed format conversion (e.g. Line-data or TIFF to PDF); and the re-indexing of the contents.

Check Image Archive Migration

We are also a leading provider of Check Image Archive migration services, involving the migration of billions of check items (front and back images plus metadata) from legacy archives to new check image archives. Our data migration services cover all major vendors, including: Banctec, NCR, Carreker, ImageSoft, Silas Technology, Unisys, Bisys, etc. Data Strategies continuously expands its data migration capabilities by adding new products/formats to the list of document archives supported by the company’s DocumentGenie and CheckGenie migration tools.

Backup Data Migration

Data Strategies also provides a broad spectrum of Backup Data migration services based on the same “non-invasive” technology and unique processes that characterize all our offerings. These services include: production of backup data catalogues from media created by legacy applications; restoring data from vintage backup tapes whose format or media type are no longer supported by customer’s infrastructure; backup data consolidation using higher capacity media; data migration from a legacy backup format (product) to a new backup format (product).
