You can say “migrations and upgrades” to a database administrator (DBA) or systems administrator, but what they usually hear is “risk and downtime". That's because migrating data from one platform to another requires a lot of planning with many moving parts that different teams, systems and individual users rely on. Some traditional migration methods are easy to use, but they only work for migrations on the same platform and many organizations have multiple databases on different platforms.
