Data Migration Description
The records within the TOMIS system will be migrated to another electronic offender records management system when it is determined the existing system no longer meets the requirements of the Tennessee Department of Correction and another electronic offender records management system is developed or purchased. At that time, TDOC IT staff will coordinate with the vendor/software supplier to map data exchanges between the current system (TOMIS) and the new system. Data conversion will be required in order to format the current data values into the format required by a replacement software system. Preserving the data integrity is the highest priority when migrating the information from one system to another, to ensure the value of the data is not lost in the process.
