What's new in Ispirer Tools, January 2023

As a general rule, automation streamlines the process of migration between source and target endpoints that use different database engines. In addition, it mitigates risks, prevents business disruption, and eradicates human error. But what stands behind all of that? Behind all the results stands a team of seasoned database specialists, developers, engineers and testers. Ispirer experts analyze our migration products every day, test new migration features, and make improvements to automatic migration quality. All of our efforts are directed at ensuring that the migration of databases and applications goes as smoothly as possible.

Over the past month we have been working hard to improve the user experience of all our tools. Assessment Toolkit now generates extended reports for Informix as a source. Now information about statements, constructions, SQL functions and system objects is collected automatically which speeds up the process of assessment considerably. Ispirer Toolkit now provides migration tips which significantly simplifies the tuning process.
