5 Reasons to Migrate Your Data to SQL Server

This week, Attunity announced a collaboration with Microsoft to enable faster and easier adoption of SQL Server 2016, the latest version of Microsoft’s market-leading database and data warehousing platform running on-premises or on Microsoft Azure.

Leveraging award-winning Attunity Replicate’s high-performance data replication and change data capture (CDC) technologies, we accelerate zero-downtime migrations from systems like Oracle and other data platforms to SQL Server 2016.

Microsoft SQL Server 2016 has several improvements over earlier versions, including faster transactions and queries, advanced analytics, and new hybrid cloud scenarios. When combined with use of Attunity Replicate, it provides enterprises with a significant opportunity to scale their Big Data ecosystems efficiently and affordably by migrating from other databases such as Oracle and prior versions of SQL Server.

Here are 5 reasons to consider moving your data to SQL Server:

  • Break free from Oracle
    Leading organizations are looking for alternatives to complement or find alternatives to their Oracle databases and their traditional systems to accommodate new styles of business intelligence and application development and achieve greater agility and productivity. The bottom line is that customers today can achieve high performance and reliability with the Microsoft Data Platform: SQL Server, Azure SQL Database and Azure SQL Data Warehouse.
  • Reduce costs
    According to one estimate, SQL Server proved to be 12 times less expensive than Oracle and studies indicate that it allows greater flexibility with modern enterprise applications.
  • Achieve greater ROI
    In one of case study, Forrester Consulting found that an organization who switched from Oracle to SQL Server achieved a 20% improvement in the amount of IT resource time used managing mission-critical applications with SQL Server and a 12% reduction in help desk calls, translating to a cost savings of over $700,000 per year.
  • Consolidate data
    Perhaps you’re an enterprise that has many different types of data in a bunch of different places. Maybe you have purchased a few companies, but they all store their data in unique formats. Your challenge – consolidate your data into one database that lets the entire business have one, cohesive view of everything that is available. SQL Server can help you do that.
  • Security
    This is one of the hottest topics in technology today. When you’re dealing with any type of data (especially sensitive personal, financial or healthcare data), trust is one of the most important factors in choosing a data solution. SQL Server was voted “least vulnerable” 6 years in a row by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Attunity is running a special program for migrating data to SQL Server, called ‘Break Free from Oracle’, that includes a free product trial of Attunity Replicate. For more, read the whitepaper or watch our recorded webinar with Microsoft!
