Guided Tour of Smart Data Frameworks Migration Dashboard - Teradata to Snowflake

Smart Data Frameworks allows for efficient, stress-free migrations between most major database platforms.

It is built as a flatpack application, employing container technology. It comprises a suite of pre-installed software components. It comes in two distinct parts – an open source user interface and a commercial overlay, the ETL framework.

The UI facilitates interactive error handling and recovery and is a user friendly hands-on tool for migrating data. The ETL framework comprises the migration wizard and the migration dashboard and comes with richer functionality for setting up and running complex data migrations automatically.

In this video we continue the migration from a Teradata database to a Snowflake database using the SMF Migration Dashboard.

The Migration Dashboard is what you’d use after initially using the migration wizard. So using the wizard you will set up all the jobs and the metadata and thereafter the generated metadata will drive the migration dashboard.

In the dashboard you will see all your tables and their associated jobs, and their statuses. Here you can put tables on hold or change their status. You can filter on different statuses. You can switch to the ETL jobs from the dashboard to make changes, and you can open the ETL monitor to see logs.

You also do MD5 validation from here, so you can drill down into any data validation issue and also troubleshoot migration issues.
