Use the Data Conversion Plan template to describe the strategy to convert data from a source system to a target system. This template will help you outline the approach, assumptions, and processes that form part of the data conversion.
To achieve this:

• Define an ETL process for each data source
• Identify tools to convert, transform, and cleanse data
• Define quality assurance and control measures
The intended audience of the Data Conversion Plan is the Project Sponsor and the Project Team.
