Business requirements should drive technology choices, not the other way around. For too long, concerns about platform migration risks have held issuers back on making the right decisions about technologies that can have a big impact on their ability to expand their business. And while card re-issuance of an existing portfolio is an option, it is time consuming, costly, and a potentially high-risk path to take when making a platform change.
i2c’s proven methodologies, excellence in process management, flawless communications, and the migration-ready flexibility of our technology mitigate the risks inherent in migrations while ensuring a seamless cardholder experience.

i2c’s platform architecture provides a range of options when determining the optimal migration strategy and offers tremendous flexibility during the data mapping design process. Our experience and technical expertise with the data structure of legacy systems facilitates moving your business to a platform capable of handling the complexities of next-generation payments.
The entire process is guided by best practices based on numerous successful migrations. Our migration team creates a customized migration plan for each client, including a formal communication structure and meeting schedule. We have extensive experience mapping data to the i2c platform through multiple levels of verification. A rigorous 60-day “rehearsal” and exchange of data in a real environment provides visibility into, and verification of, transactions prior to the platform conversion.
An invaluable part of i2c’s migration service is a single project “owner” who works with a group of cross-functional i2c domain experts to drive the migration from start to finish. The project leader engages key stakeholders (existing processor, card network, etc.) to identify critical dependencies early-on, ensure readiness of all parties, and adherence to proven best practices. The project leader has clear visibility into the entire process, proactively identifying issues and managing risk.
