3.0 out of 5 stars Some theory on data migration, 16 May 2007
This review is from: Practical Data Migration (Paperback)
I did not find anything really practical in this book. Data migration is covered mostly from a project management perspective and there are very few tips on how to actually do it. Look somewhere else if you need real "how-to" knowledge.

James, an interesting point, although I'm not sure I fully agree with you. The book has a lot of good advise on how to run data migration projects, particularly as they differ in many respects to new system builds. But you suggest looking elsewhere! Now I haven't seen a book that gives you the how tos you want. Do you have titles you would like to suggest?
