Your job

The One IHC programme develops and implements uniform processes, enterprise-wide data models and state-of-the-art software systems within Royal IHC. As part of this, IHC is converting a high volume of legacy data from our old software systems to our new landscape, comprising IHC’s core software systems (ERP, PDM, CAD and Planning). At IHC, the migration is complex: we come from a landscape of more than 10 different ERP systems, various PDM systems and multiple CAD systems, along with a variety of technical products. Our aim is to realise one ERP system, one PDM system and a much smaller number of CAD systems. As such, the data migration (including information on parts, customers, suppliers, resources and transactions) is a significant undertaking, especially where engineering data is concerned.

As Data Migration Specialist of Royal IHC, your main responsibility is to investigate data sources and analyse the quality of data within them. In addition, you will be tasked with cleansing data, and mapping and converting it to the new data model. For this, you will use a state-of-the-art ETL toolkit built on Oracle’s EDQ/EDQP platform. You will be a key member of One IHC’s roll-out team and report to the Data Migration Manager. As a Data Migration Specialist, you will be responsible for the following: 

  • exporting data from a multitude of existing software systems and databases
  • gaining a deeper understanding of the usage of legacy systems and data by interacting with local data experts
  • investigating and determining the quality of the data
  • cleansing data according to carefully documented and coherently explained principles
  • converting data to the new information model, which may also involve splitting and combine data according to prescribed algorithms
  • verifying and testing the correctness of data
  • importing/migrating data to the new systems
  • reporting progress to the Team Leader.

  • affinity for and/or experience in industrial and/or technical environments
  • a flexible attitude towards working hours in support of the data migration/conversion activities
  • knowledge of IFS Applications, Oracle CRM or Siemens Teamcenter is considered an advantage, but not necessary
  • excellent communication skills in English and Dutch, both spoken and written
  • only candidates with valid EU work visa will be considered as viable candidates
  • an online assessment and screening can be part of the recruitment process.
