Book Review – Oracle Information Integration Migration And Consolidation

I recently had the chance to look over the book “Oracle Information Integration Migration and Consolidation” by Jason Williamson, published by PackT Publishing.

The book deals with all aspects of migration to Oracle from various Oracle and non-Oracle sources. In a soup-to-nuts manner, the book covers the major tools to move data into and out of Oracle including OWB, SQLPLUS, EXPDP, IMPDP, RMAN, SQL*DEVELOPER, GoldenGate, and various ETL type tools including some form 3rd party companies.

The book includes many examples and use cases and numerous charts showing what tools should be used for which tasks. The book is written in a down-to-earth style and was easy to read.

I would recommend this book for anyone facing a data migration, platform change or complete system re-write into Oracle from another source.
