Despite this, most developers think that moving data is all about writing a few SQL scripts and leave the rest to some DBA. Often developers lack any practical knowledge or effective strategies when it comes to data migration.
I read this book, back in 2010, when at the time I joined a project whose core responsibility it was to migrate 90 TB of an entire enterprises knowledge base. To add to the challenge the project team were also tasked with improving & enriching the metadata of the data to improve searching capabilities. The data did not only consist of physical database but also other media such as Documents, Videos, Audio etc.
It became abundantly clear to me, that we actually needed a comprehensive strategy and there were not only clear gaps in our expectations but also in the end clients expectations. Which was also compounded by the fact that the stakeholders of the project, did not really understand the data.
I decided I needed to find some way to fill the gaps and stumbled across this book. After reading this book, I was able to confidently approach the enormity of the task.
I also recommended this book to the whole project team and customer team, due to it containing practical and easily implementable advice, without being too geeky![amazon text=Buy Practical Data Migration now >>&asin=1906124841] [/vc_column_text]
I cannot recommend this book highly enough! I have personally read this book 2 or 4 times cover to cover, and have actually used and implemented the advice contained in it to further propel my career.
For those of dubious nature, I would recommend visiting John Sonmez’s blog . I’ve heard him on a couple of podcasts and also completed some of his pluralsight training courses in the past. Never met him, but he comes across as a real nice and down to earth guy.
This book contains some real sound advice you can use to not only improve your career but also your general lifestyle too.[amazon text=Buy Soft Skills now >> &asin=1617292397][/vc_column_text]
