Microsoft SQL Server, Greenplum
The client, working with Ispirer’s technology partner EMC Greenplum, expressed a desire to use the Greenplum platform. Our partner recommended Ispirer’s migration services as the most efficient option for the client’s Microsoft SQL Server to Greenplum migration project. A large number of SQL scripts were to be migrated within a short timeline. The EMC team planned to work onsite and subcontracted Ispirer to provide the remote migration services.
Ispirer was working as part of the project team and chosen as a business logic service provider. The task entailed total involvement of our technical specialists and tool developers into the migration process. The key objective was to provide ready-to-implement conversion codes, so that the client would not have to deal with any issues after receiving the conversion results. Our technical specialists divided the working process into three parts – conversion of big-sized files, conversion of medium-sized files, and conversion of small-sized files, making the process well-structured and consistent. Ispirer’s automated migration tool SQLWays was used for migration. Some rapid replacements in the source code scripts were made and a few specific conversion rules were added into the tool.
Results and Advantages
Ispirer’s highly qualified and well-prepared team facilitated implementation of the migration project. The team managed to deliver the migrated code within two months, in line with the project schedule and budget.
