Using and Maintaining migrated data
Having textual data in Unicode for your globalized application makes it simpler for diverse functions such as Text and Data Mining for Business Intelligence or Business Transactions over mobile devices. Machine Translation can make content in one language available in others and Transliteration can make data in one script available in another. Having all the text migrated to Unicode facilitates these operations.
Maintaining data in Unicode is also much easier. However, administrators should understand the scripts as well as Unicode technical specifications to manage multilingual data.
On demand globalization is a competitive advantage. Well-considered and well-defined standards, tools and processes are the only way to ensure that it is functional for diverse customers and manageable across a diverse IT infrastructure.
Unicode is one such corner stone of a globalized on demand business.
