Abstract: Migrating data across heterogeneous storage environments can be risky and have potentially disastrous effects. To ensure a productive data migration, you need careful planning and a migration solution that provides a non-disruptive data mobility and avoids the risk of data loss as it ensures high data integrity and application availability during the migration.

Transparent Data Migration Facility (TDMF®) for z/OS® is a host-based software solution for volume based data migration in a z/OS environment.
This paper describes the best practise, essential parameters and some new functions to enhance data integrity and consistency during a z/OS data migration.
