I'm about to start a new data migration project. It's kind of my thing at the moment. I'll basically have to migrate a data model from an Oracle 11g database to a different data model in an Oracle 12c database and somewhere in between will take into account all the business rules and surrounding application ecosystem with all its constraints and challenges.
In my previous project, we were migrating from and to 11g. We used PL/SQL to extract and perform some data preparation. The core data transformation was later performed in a C++ module, from which XML files were generated and finally imported. It was far from being a great solution; instead, it was basically some code rework from a past project.
What about you guys? I'm looking forward to knowing what kind of experiences you had with this kind of project!
