Abstract: The objective of the research was to efficiently manage migration process between different Database Management Systems (DBMS) by automating the database migration process. The automation of the database migration process involved database cloning between different platforms, exchange of data between data center and different clients running non-identical DBMS and backing up the database in flexible format, such as eXtensible Markup Language (XML). This approach involved development of a “Database Migration Tool”. The tool was developed on a windows platform using Java Eclipse™ with four non-identical dummy Relational Databases (Microsoft Access, MySQL, SQL Server and Oracle). The tool was run in a controlled environment over the network and databases were successfully migrated from source to targeted destination option specified. The developed tool is more efficient, timely, as well as highly cost effective.
