Helical’s expertise on Data Migration using Talend ETL

Data migration means the process of transferring data from one source to another. The source and target could be relational DB, NoSQL DB, columnar DB, graph DB, etc.

There are various cases when we need to migrate data. Some of the examples when such a need arises are

  • Moving from a proprietary database like Oracle to an opensource DB like MySQL for reducing cost.
  • Moving from relational DB to big data technologies since relational DB is unable to give optimal performance with increasing data size.
  • Upgrading from a lower version of database to a higher version of database with more functionalities and capabilities
  • Moving data from one product to another product. Example: You might be using one HR software and then might migrate to another one.
  • Merging systems from two companies into one
