I’m Raghavendra Rao. I am a database guy. I work as Senior PostgreSQL Consultant/Architect in Enterprise-class Product company. I have started my career in 2005 in Oracle and in the year 2009 I have chosen open source database PostgreSQL as my primary database. You can make it out from my community focused blogging since from 2011raghavt.blogspot.com My passion towards the databases made me to work with different databases Oracle(7.x- 12c), PostgreSQL (8.x - 10.x), SQL Server, MySQL & DB2.

Today with different databases experience I am helping customers to migrate their proprietory database to Community PostgreSQL/EDB Postgres database. I have developed proprietory Database Migration Assessment Tool(DMAT) in Python with a built-in parser to give migration(efforts/days) estimates.
