Best tool for legacy systems data migration

I am working on a mySAP ECC 6.0 implementation project in which data will be imported from a large number of highly customized legacy applications. Records are in the millions, therefore data cleansing and consolidation is a very large aspect.

The Legacy Migration Workbench (LSMW) is probably the best option. It has been around for years and many customers successfully used it to migrate from R/2 or legacy systems to R/3. Migrating Your SAP Data, published by SAP-PRESS describes LSMW in detail. It contains example projects and success stories to get you going.
