The story of Accelo-Pro, a platform to migrate data from any source to any target
When I joined Prodapt in 2011, we were doing a lot of consolidation work for a customer, which involved bringing together data from multiple applications into one. Most of this was done manually, making the process slow and time-consuming. But at that point, that was the only known way of getting it done. There was no solution available in the market to automate these kinds of data migrations.
Though we were a small team at that time, we already had lots of experience in data migrations. In fact, we were one of the few teams that had access to the source code of the application to which the data was being migrated. Curious as always, we started to think beyond the immediate processes and wondered if we could bring in automation to play a role here. And knowing that there was no tool in the market to automate the process, we thought, “How do we ‘solutionize’ this, and how do we monetize that solution?”

We thought, “How do we ‘solutionize’ this, and how do we monetize that solution?”
After lots of brainstorming and iterations, our solution was finally ready, Accelo-Pro! The platform could automatically consolidate the data for our customers. But we had thought beyond the customer’s current requirements: we built Accelo-Pro with the ability to migrate data from any source to any target, something no other platform could do!
It was the first of its kind platform in the market. Gradually, it went on to become the core application around which we built multiple customer-centric solutions. As this framework greatly improved data quality and migration time, Prodapt could beat industry heavyweights like Deloitte and Dell to win the NPG award for Best Solution in the Telecom Industry!
