Data Strategies International


Data Strategies has over 20 years of experience with media conversion and data migration services. We have developed unique tools and processes to perform the off-line migration of text and image documents archived by most legacy systems to newer document archive systems. The same off-line approach characterizes our PACS migration service for medical records, as well as our backup data migration service for legacy media.

Often mainframe migration projects, which move mainframe applications to midrange platforms, involve large amounts of legacy data on tape.

The modernization vendors will, generally, migrate the active data, (databases and VSAM), themselves.

However, the migration of mainframe tape archives presents special problems, not the least of which is the fact they are often huge - in the order of tens or hundreds of terabytes.

For this reason Data Strategies has developed ad-hoc services to perform the analysis and migration of legacy mainframe data to midrange platforms (or the Cloud).

Data Strategies offers a comprehensive range of tape transcription services for the oil and gas industry. Whether you have a need for straight bit-to-bit tape copies, or your job has complex editing requirements, the seismic group at our company can handle your request.

There are several instances in which a PACS vendor or user needs to migrate patient data from one PACs digital image archive to another (e.g. storage hardware upgrade, PACs replacement of same or different vendor). Data Strategies offers a scalable and flexible solution to patient data migration between PACs systems, the DICOM BRIDGE.

For data centers, Data Strategies offers an end-to-end tape data migration solution that easily converts tape media from one format to another or enables the migration of your entire tape library to a new tape storage technology.

Our services are performed off-line utilizing proprietary software and hardware devices, resulting in virtually no usage of customer’s system CPU time and minimal impact on day-to-day operations. Data Strategies can perform all conversion tasks at the customer site or at the company’s secure facility in Houston, TX.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Right to Financial Privacy Act (RFPA) and the Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLB), mandate an assortment of obligations and liabilities for data owners and specify a variety of consequences. DiskGenie-Sanitizer services from DSI provide data cleansings to help you manage these risks, neutralize your potential liability and protect your company’s data from discovery.
