The best way is to simply write a script to take the old data and map it to the new Info object type, as it will trigger any events and such.
However, you can just do a SQL Import if the following things are true:
- This is a single site, and there is no Staging enabled (if you have staging enabled, doing a database insert won't catch the changes)
- The destination is either a Custom Module class or a Custom Table. You never want to insert data into anything relating to the CMS_Tree (Tree Nodes) or Documents as there are many related tables.
- Object versioning is disabled for the object you are inserting into. If versioning is turned on, then doing an insert won't properly update the versioning.
If all of those are true, you would probably be very safe just doing a SQL insert of the data. If not, then just create a temporary ASPX page somewhere, add a button with onclick postback and add your .net code to insert the objects using Kentico's API.
