Yogesh Khandelwal, President and Chief Executive Officer of geoAMPS, was invited to present at the quarterly educational seminar of the International Right of Way Association Buckeye Chapter 13. International Right of Way Association (IRWA) members from Ohio and neighboring states attended the seminar held Jan. 15 at the Der Dutchman Restaurant in Plain City, Ohio.Yogesh’s presentation focused on data migration, which involves transferring information from various sources into a single software solution. The process requires extracting data from its original source, correcting errors, reformatting and loading it into a centralized, easily accessible location.
Yogesh’s article “Taking on a Data Migration” was published in the November-December issue of Right of Way magazine. In it, he wrote about the benefits of establishing a centralized database and the process of accomplishing that through a data migration. He also discussed these topics during his talk at the IRWA Buckeye Chapter 13 seminar.
Organizations oftentimes have so-called “silos” of information kept by various departments or even individual staff members. Requests must go out for sharing of this data, if it is known that the data exists within the organization. A central database, made possible through a data migration, can eliminate this organizational inefficiency.
An engineer with a diverse background in technology across various industries, Yogesh has more than 15 years of experience in database customization and implementation.
geoAMPS helps companies implement standardized processes, bringing efficiency and optimization within project and asset management.
