OS/DB migration, heterogeneous DB-copy, alternative approaches (cheaper)

Hi Peter,

nearly everything what Dieter is correct. So, you might not have to
pay the 8000 EUR, but you definetely should use the official
migration tools. Especially because you have to convert the database
from EBCDIC to ASCII as well.
There is only one more thing. You ALWAYS need a certified migration
consultant. Only for PRD systems you need as well the special
services from SAP.

But in any case it is not too easzy to do this project in general.
Please do NOT forget to test the migrated system after the first
migreation test!
