Database Migration: A Literature Review and Case Study
This literature review provides an overview of various areas of research in database migration. Specific areas which are addressed are legacy migration, migrating between different database models, reverse engineering, schema design and translation, and security. Additional literature is considered which provides a general overview of the topic. Some case study literature is included with an emphasis on library science studies. This literature review is then applied to a case study migration project at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in order to determine where the literature was helpful and where not, as well as where more research may be needed. Conclusions are drawn that the theoretical literature is quite comprehensive, but that literature having more practical application could certainly be strengthened.
