Rounding out our process after Data Loading, the final part is the Data Verification step. This is the fifth and final phase in the migration process, also known as migration testing. Data integrity is checked during the Transformation process, but final verification is necessary upon completion to ensure accuracy and a successful migration.
During the data verification, SAP BODS checks the current data against preloaded data for business logic verification. It compares both the source and the target data, checking for any discrepancies. If any are found, they are reported, and if possible, repaired. The BODS tool also provides a dashboard displaying errors, enabling the team to reconcile any issues early on. This is part of the overall test plan, and can encompass several other testing methods that are chosen by your migration team.
