Embedded SQL Migration Services
Applications that interact with databases tend to contain embedded SQL. The general structure of various embedded SQL implementations contains plenty of identical elements, however, migration from one database to another can be quite challenging, especially if you have a lot of dynamic SQL. Ispirer offers end-to-end migration of SQL statements in various applications, written in Delphi, PowerBuilder, COBOL, C/C++, Java, C#, VB.NET, VB and other languages. Our migration experts capture the general pattern of the embedded SQL structure of your programming code and migrate it while keeping the main logic of the solution almost intact.
Database API Migration Services
Along with embedded SQL, database APIs are also used to access databases from applications. In some cases they need to be replaced as well. For example, some databases use their native APIs to interact properly with applications. In this case, the API must be replaced during the database migration. Moreover, some programming languages use several APIs, their choice is determined by the requirements of a particular project. If such requirements change, it may also be necessary to replace the database API. We offer a comprehensive migration of database APIs in C/C++ (ODBC, ECPG, ESQL/C, Sybase CTLib/DBLibrary, Oracle OCI/Pro*C), Java (JDBC, Hibernate), C#/VB.NET/ASP.NET (ADO.NET, Entity Framework, LINQ) and other languages. Ispirer experts will ensure that your application and its database remain interoperational, without any manual corrections either during or after the migration.
Accelerating our customers’ embedded SQL and database API migration journey.
The client is a U.S.-based nonprofit education organization that seeks to ensure equal rights for students in low-income groups throughout the United States. This was the second time a customer approached Ispirer.
Our client is an American broadcasting and cable company. The challenge was to convert the C application from Sybase ESQL API to PostgreSQL ECPG API, including embedded SQL. The total scope included almost 50,000 LOCs.
Our client is one of the top 3 market chains in the UK. Teradata was chosen as the target DW. HP and Teradata teamed up for the project, and HP asked Ispirer to add special rules into SQLWays for the Neoview to Teradata migration.

What Our Customers Say
"We have found the tool to be powerful, and robust, which has facilitated the smooth conversion of one of our core systems from Informix 7.3.1 running on a Sun Unix enviroment to an enviroment running Windows Server 2008 SQL Server 2008."
"We have found the Ispirer team to be knowledgeable and responsive and we have found the tooling to be flexible enough to be easily adapted to our coding conventions."
"We found the SQLWays product and the Ispirer Systems support staff to be an enormous asset and an exceptional value to our migration team. The interface with the entire Ispirer organization was seamless and extremely efficient."
"We were thrilled when we found out that the migration could be performed only in a few months taking into account the large amount of data that need to be converted and our specific requirements."
"At the onset of the engagement the Ispirer MnMTK was expanded to meet the specific requirements of our migration prior to being delivered for our use. Once this phase of the project was complete we were provided with the expanded toolkit."
"Ispirer MnMTK was crucial to the successful completion of our database conversion project. We had tried several different strategies and tools previously and none of them compared to Ispirer MnMTK. It was definitely money well spent."
"The Ispirer team turned out to be very responsive, our customization requests were processed very quickly.Thanks to the tool, the only thing left to do was to fix 2 or 3 statements that were not automated during the migration process."
"Because of Ispirer and MnMTK, our team was able to devote its time to build the infrastructure for new Java programs instead of spending time on converting code. The produced Java code met all our maintainability, readability and performance requirements."
