We've helped our customers consolidate and split ...... and our experience with the
process has yielded some insights; here's a top-line sample:
a. Not a trivial undertaking
b. Eventually exposes very small differences in policy, practice, and convention
between the entities
c. Auditors end up deciding what data to keep and the starting point is your
compliance profile (SOX, FDA 21 CFR part 11, Tabaksblat Code, etc.)
d. Whether it's a split or a consolidation, the process creates plenty of data that
requires clean-out attention.
e. There's a fine line between data clean-out that is fully constructive and
data clean-out that is well intentioned but accidentally harmful.
f. Tools for item deactivation, archiving, and database integrity analysis
can collectively save man-years of technical effort.
With respect to the data tools, please look at our "Janitorial Implements for BPCS."

With respect to considering technical assistance, please look at our NoExcuses HelpLine
service; it has earned "Standing Ovations" from our customers:
Best of good fortune on your project!
