This month realworldecho successfully delivered a fully automated migration of 5.7m records for a US customer. During a carefully scheduled shutdown the users were trained on the new system while our code corrected, transformed, and migrated their data from the legacy Oracle based system into a new empty Smallworld PNI database. Thanks to our careful specification and testing process we were able to identify targeted data cleanup beforehand so that the automated migration converted 99.84% of the legacy records. To quote members of the customer’s senior management team this performance was ‘Awesome’ and ‘Outstanding’.
