Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server were selected as the most suitable due to their functionality and performance.

In order to perform a smooth move of their data the company came to Ispirer. Our experts’ task was to propose a solution to migrate dozens of databases from Progress to Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. The project involved migration of all types of database objects and data.
