Drawing on internal resources would not be feasible and they considered several migration tools. The company selected Ispirer and our professionals were requested to automate the migration of the FireBird database into Oracle platform. The client’s database involved around 1 thousand tables that contained 100 GB of data.
Ispirer migration experts have had many years of experience working with migration from FireBird to Oracle. Thus, Ispirer Migration and Modernization Toolkit 2015 had enough capacity to perform data migration correctly.
The client had used our free Demonstration Edition of the Ispirer MnMTK 2015. After trying the Toolkit he realized that the Ispirer MnMTK 2015 is capable to meet the requirements of his migration as it is.
This task did not require any Toolkit extension by introducing some specific conversion rules into it. We delivered the licensed full edition of the product to the customer.
