1.1.3 Defining a Test Plan to Validate the Migration

Oracle recommends that you define a test plan to verify whether the 12c system has all the migrated data as you expected. Oracle BI 12c provides a set of validation tools that can be used to validate certain parts of the 12c system. However, they are supplementary to the validation task.

A typical test plan identifies the following:

  • A representative subset of the existing 12c system to use as a test upgrade
  • Several key indicators used to verify that a test upgrade has completed satisfactorily
  • Additional key indicators used to verify that a full upgrade has completed satisfactorily
