Migration Project

We have performed a migration project for one of the Automotive leader companies in the world. The project included migration of our client’s database from Oracle to Pivotal Greenplum (based on PostgreSQL). The scope of this project migration included conversion of eigth Oracle instances (3 Datawarehouses and 5 Datamarts), with thousands of tables, views, procedures, functions, external interfaces and ingestion scripts.

This huge work has been resolved successfully with the precious help of the tool Ispirer MnMTK and several customizations and adaptations to our needs, carried out by the Ispirer technical specialists. The main challenge of this project was the high complexity of business logic written in the Oracle stored procedures using some particular Oracle features.

After a year of hard work the project has finished successfully. Ispirer has been a reliable and highly qualified partner, and their technical specialists made customizations in a timely fashion and very accurate way.
