These training exercises are designed to give you a good start working with migFx. As with with any tool with depth and complexity, you will of course experience that your proficiency in using migFx will deepen considerably with use and experience. Hopefully, these exercises will give you a good understanding of the components in migFx and how they all play together to support and execute complex data migrations.


Before launching into the exercises, have a look at this video to get an initial view of the 2 types of mapping you are going to work on in these Studio exercises:


migFx Hourglass


You will also get a taste of how the mapping turns into something that can actually execute data migration by having a look at this video:


Mapping to Engine


The exercises are built around a fictive case involving the migration of two banks. You can read about this project in the Training case description document attached below.


About the training

The exercises start at a point where some work has already been done. The Customer and Account Business Objects are already in place and working.  We ask you - on top of that - to build a new Business Object Card and also in the later exercises to fix some problems in the Customer/Account Business Objects.


The exercises are a sequence of work, each step builds upon previous steps. Please be thorough, in many exercises there is a lot of detail. Do your best to be accurate and work through everything. Skipping parts of an exercises will most probably come back to bite as a problem in a later exercise. If you do experience problems, try to go back in your work to find the cause.


If you get stuck, you can always reach out to us and we we will do our best to help you sort things out with very small delay, indeed mostly no delay at all. All necessary contact information has been provided together with the information to access your training slot.
