Data conversion is just the conversion or translation of data from one format to another. Data Conversion has great significance in the world of business today because like never before information has become very powerful. If you don’t have access to the right information at the right time, it could prove to be very risky in today’s fast changing competitively poised business environment.
A lot of raw data is accumulated in business. It is very essential to convert this data into digital formats so that it becomes useful to us. Those companies who have had all data in paper form are converting it into digital files and making databases. These databases become the source to get valuable and potential information and at the same time one has to make sure to periodically update information into the new database for instant reference.
Data Conversion often involves import of non-relational data that is validated, cleansed, and split up into multiple tables and made into a new relational database structure. Data conversion uses state of art technologies like high-speed scanners and data processors and converts data from one format to another as per specific formatting needs of clients. Some of the common types of data conversion services available today are,
- HTML conversion
- SGML conversion
- CAD conversion
- Catalog conversion
- XML conversion
- Document conversion
Most data conversion service providers customize the conversion work allowing clients to select the output variables and storage.
