Third-party data migration partners

There are many benefits to working with a RelativityOne partner who has earned the Data Migration Competency.

First and foremost, these partners specialize in Relativity and can consult with you on customized solutions or, in some cases, even provide their own applications to accelerate your migration. Second, data migration requires a combination of expertise and availability. While a lot of our customers have technical proficiency and availability, for many this will be their first large RelativityOne data migration. Partners with the Data Migration Competency bring knowledge and resources that can help accelerate your timeline and provide peace of mind. Finally, because migrations typically occur on nights and weekends, it is optimal for many organizations to rely on a partner for the necessary coverage.

Note: Partners with the Data Migration Competency are certified to support and understand RelativityOne standard practices for data migration. Each partner with the competency may implement expanded or enhanced offerings of value for data migrations, including but not limited to customized workflows or applications. For these reasons, approaches and processes may differ with each partner who has earned the Data Migration Competency.
