Financial Services Industry (FSI) is a sector with day-to-day business transaction operation dealing with numbers of classified information owned by its customers. It can be managed by the private sector or other institutions pointed by the government, either it is a bank or an insurance company. Aiming to improve services, acquisitions between companies can occur. There will be a migration of applications and databases in the acquisition process. This process will present certain constraints and challenges and prone to data fraud. Improper handling will also have a negative impact on the environment, especially e-waste generation of IT components from financial sector due to company's acquisition case. So, study on database and application migration is important to be conducted. This research aims to identify constraints and challenge factors behind application and database migration in the FSI during a company acquisition. It uses a descriptive qualitative method with a case study approach that examines as much data as possible regarding the subject under study. The case studies use a single-case method, considering that the cases studied are unique and essential. The migration methodology used in this study combines application migration and databases from previous research journals and is added to the processes that occur in the field. Two factors become obstacles and challenges in the migration process, namely technology and non-technological factors. Database migration strategy uses a big-bang strategy based on joint decisions between the business and IT teams. The organizational challenge is the approval process for the transfer of membership management and data conditions that require validation and confirmation before migration. This research suggests using a mature migration strategy to anticipate technical and organizational constraints applying clear and scheduled policies and regulations.
