Interactive Data Mapping Process
  1. Identify and inventory what types of the information resides in different repositories

  2. Understand available destination locations based on functional criteria that map to source data use cases

  3. Classify content to build a high-level taxonomy and risk category (High, Med, Low value/risk)

  4. Act to build a transition plan based on priority, cost, availability, risk. Map content to the destination.
