The Modernization Mirage: Why Core Banking Data Migration Can Cripple Your Bank or Credit Union

Mergers and acquisitions are exciting times, but for banks and credit unions, the real challenge often lies beneath the surface – data migration during Core Banking System (CBS) transformation. While the promise of a modernized system beckons, the data migration process itself can be a minefield of hidden dangers that threaten to cripple your bank’s operations.  

Data Disasters: Real-World Consequences of Poor Migration

Imagine frustrated customers due to missing names in their accounts, inaccurate loan calculations because of conflicting date formats, or regulatory non-compliance due to mishandled data. These are just a few of the real-world consequences of incomplete data mapping, poor data conversion, and inadequate testing during data migration.  

These issues aren’t just theoretical. Inconsistent data can lead to: 

Customer Outrage: Inaccurate records create service nightmares, damaging customer trust and loyalty. 

Operational Disruptions: Corrupted or unusable data can cripple the functionality of your new system, impacting core banking functions. 

Regulatory Headaches: Non-compliant data can lead to hefty fines and reputational damage.
