It is a major challenge to migrate very large databases from one system, say for example, to transfer critical data from Oracle to SQL Server. One has to consider several issues such as loss of data being transferred, the security of the data, the cost and effort, technical aspects of the software involved, etc. There a very few books that provide practical tools and the methodology to migrate data from one vendor to another. This book introduces the concepts in database migration with large sample databases. It provides step by step guides and screenshots for database migration tools. Many examples are shown for migrating Oracle, SQL Server and MySQL databases.
