How It Works


1. Download and install the tool

For a database conversion you need to install SQLWays Wizard which is a part of Ispirer Toolkit. Register the tool with a license key that specifies the period of use, source database, target database, data volume, and SQL code. SQLWays Wizard works on Windows, but source and target databases can be anywhere. The key and links to install the toolkit are automatically sent to your mailbox once you submit a request for a free demo license on our website.


2. Connect to a source database

The tool interacts with a source database using the ODBC connection. It gives an advantage over converting files with SQL scripts. The tool receives the important information from the source database and takes into account data types and relationships between objects, which increases the conversion quality.


3. Migrate your database

Database migration can be divided into data migration and SQL migration. Using SQLWays Wizard, you can transfer not only tables and data, but also stored procedures, functions, packages, views, and triggers.
SQLWays Wizard supports both legacy and the most popular RDBMS. Among them are Informix, Sybase, DB2, Teradata, Firebird, Progress, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MySQL.

Results analysis

4. Optimize migration results

Several factors determine the migration outcome including code features, source and target technologies. For a seamless migration of specific code, we recommend using Ispirer Toolkit customization, which significantly reduces the number of errors and increases the automation level. After the migration, the tool generates a final report that helps to check out and correct errors if any. Unique features of source code sometimes require manual correction performed by experts. The reports help determine the amount of manual adjustments to be made and allow to achieve optimal migration results.
