I see that Iconico Daily Deals is going to have Parse-O-Matic Advanced Edition on sale for 80% off. I am wondering what other similar tools are out there that are in this category. I am very familiar with the multi-hundred to thousand dollar programs out there for enterprise-strength data migration between SAP, Oracle, etc. But I am curious as to what other lightweight tools there are out there.

The next question is, will Parse-O-Matic Advanced Edition be easier/quicker to use on projects than me writing some python scripts. My initial guess is that it will be quicker/easier for the simpler conversation tasks, but that if they get more complicated, I (personally, since I know python) will be better off doing it in python.

Anybody got any experience in this area and/or with similar products?

If I can find the time, I plan on trying out the demo before it goes on sale.

I have an old DOS version of Parse-O-Matic and still use it for one small job, but it's ages since I tried to do anything new with it.  I'm not a coder, and I have to say I found it hard to get to grips with.  Probably easier than full-fledged programming languages, e.g has native support for dBase files.  You are right to try the demo first.
