Our customer is a worldwide leader in IT distribution, based in the US, listed on New York Stock Exchange and in the Fortune 500. The company provides over 25 000 products in cooperation with more than 300 leading software developers.


The company working with the Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise database decided to transfer the data to MySQL because of the need to improve the management of some operations.


Since Ispirer offers a project-based approach to each customer, this was a great opportunity for a company that was looking for an efficient way to automatically migrate data. Thanks to this approach, Ispirer Migration and Modernization Toolkit can be personalized to the specifics of the customer’s target database.

After a series of pre-sale consultations and analysis of the requirements of the target database, the functionality of Ispirer MnMTK has been expanded by changing several migration rules. Fully customized and tested toolkit was licensed for 12 months and delivered to the customer.

As a result, about 100 GB and almost 100 tables were successfully converted to MySQL.

Benefits Derived from Conversion

Ispirer support consultations were available upon customer request after licensing the toolkit. Due to the enhanced functionality of Ispirer MnMTK, the migration process was highly automated, as a result, the customer didn’t need support.
