Hi

I'll shortly be conducting a data migration from a legacy system on Oracle to a new (purchased) software package running on Sybase SQL Server. I've done data migration before and found it to be very fidgety and painful. Can anyone suggest anything that will ease my pain e.g. good third party migration tools, effective methodologies, good books etc. Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

in short: planning.
And it helps to get domain experts on board as well as experts on all the systems involved (so Oracle experts and people who know your new system
inside and out).
