Data Migration from Teradata to Snowflake-img

A Direct Banking and Payment Services company needed to migrate their on-premise data warehouse residing on Teradata to cloud-based data warehouse Snowflake. The process involved migrating tables, DDL including historical and incremental data with support for cut over to on premise.

Client Challenges and Requirements

  • Unavailability of any tool for migrating Teradata DDL to Snowflake DDL with constraints 
  • Time consuming manual process for migrating large number of tables and high volume of data 
  • Manual validation of migrated data resulting in inaccuracy and inefficiency of the process
  • Challenges to migrate incremental data due to lack of CDC feature in Teradata 
  • Migration of sensitive data with Security 
  • No provision to handle pipeline failures and restartability
