Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s always a good idea to get QA personnel involved in any project as early on as possible, including data migrations. Even data migrations that may appear to be simple and straightforward conceptually can quickly become complicated as analysis is done of the source data and how it maps to the target system / database. Even the type of source database / system can have an impact on how the data migration itself is carried out. QA personnel should be involved in all aspects of the analysis and design of the data migration. QA can begin their test strategizing and developing detailed test cases during the analysis phase — and can continue to refine and finalize their test cases during the design phase. Involving QA early on helps immensely in improving the overall quality of each phase of the data migration project. QA helps identify problems as early on as possible before formal testing even begins.

    Thanks Kiwine for this good answer. There is very few help on this topic. I found it intresting to work on Data Migration project , specially the kinda issues we get in it. My involvement in the project was only during test case execution and doing some Adhoc. It required good Eyeballing . Parallel Test proved good and including "Translation Table Validation" (which validates if data "From" Column Data goes correctly " To " Column) in test cases made good test cases. I am just familiar with " Data Migration Mapping Document " . Are there any other documents which a Quality team can refer to .My understand is the "Mapping Document " is during the Analyis stage , based on which the test cases can be written .Googling around i came across these docs :Data classification document , Data exception report requirements , Audit and Reconciliation Document . Qa are these helpful to QA ? Also if you can share what sceanrios a QA can test during a) Pre-Migration Test b) Migration Test c) Post Migration Test Once again thanks for the answer.
