Prepare for “Database Shock”

So you’re switching your company to new database software…

That’s great, but…

Your staff got used to working with your the old system – they were able to quickly and easily enter and extract data (not necessarily because it was a good system, but just because they knew it so well). When the new system is implemented, they will probably have trouble adjusting to it. They won’t be able to enter or extract data as easily at first, just because they don’t know how the new system works.

Provide training for staff on the new system. This will help them overcome “database shock”. Insist that they use only the new system. In time they will learn to love it.
