Using XI in Data Migration World

Hi,

We are thinking to use XI as a replacement to ETL tool in our typical data migration activities.

1) Is it easy to do XI for data migration activities like converting Materials, Vendors,Customers, etc? There will be significant cleaning & profiling of data. Is that possible using XI?

2) Do we still need to use staging database? Any architecture document or white papers covering DM-XI will be very helpful

3) We have several legacy systems to convert in phases and I am looking for any best standards of practice using DM with XI.

Any additional information on conversions with XI is very useful.

Thanks,

Subbu

    For Data migration, if the volume is huge XI is not recommended, try to use another ETL tool for initial data load.

    Hi,

    If u think only for data migration purpose Xi is not suugestable, since we need to convert large volume of data. We have standard programs also if u want convert data into SAP.

    XI is could be useful to fetch the data from legacy and post the needed information into target system by converting suitable format.

    Regards,
