Our work

University of Hull data migration

Academic output is the lifeblood of every university. The research papers, reports, books and articles published by its staff are its product.

When the University of Hull needed to migrate its academic output archive from an in-house solution to a third-party software-as-a-service platform, they came to us to develop bespoke migration software and a workflow to ensure each record was migrated, validated, and accounted for.

As this was part of our larger Research Informations Systems project for managing the university’s entire research lifecycle, it was critical we got things right.

We needed someone with a detailed understanding of both systems who could identify potential issues that we would never spot.

The reason that the whole process ran smoothly was because Mike had a real understanding of what we were trying to achieve.

Kind words

I've worked with Mike on various occasions over the years. He is very definitely in my shortlist of people to call when you have something complex or novel to accomplish, especially if the timescales are challenging.

— Chris Pates, Senior Technical Account Manager, Amazon Web Services

When you are working on a technical project, you are often at the mercy of people who know a lot more than you do.

What makes a project work well is when these people can listen, communicate and genuinely care about the outcome.

This is exactly what Mike brings. Not only is he one of the most knowledgable people I know, he is approachable and it’s a pleasure to work with him.

If you need someone to have your back, deliver what you need and make something work... he’s your man.
