SQL Migration Tool

Introduction to SQL Migration Tool

As organizations work to adopt Microsoft SQL Server technology, IT teams need an SQL migration tool that can streamline and accelerate SQL migration while ensuring zero downtime for source and target databases.

SQL Server offers significant benefits for enterprises over Oracle databases and other database platforms. From greater agility and productivity to higher ROI and lower costs for data modernization, SQL server is enabling enterprises to improve data preparation and transformation to accommodate new styles of business intelligence and application development.

But migrating can create headaches and significant burden for IT teams as they struggle to maintain performance of databases during data migration. Downtime is not an option, so existing databases must run concurrently with new systems. That requires an SQL migration tool with Change Data Capture (CDC) technology that can provide near real-time transactional replication to ensure data integrity and low latency in applying changes from existing databases to SQL server.

To minimize the burden on IT teams, the right SQL migration tool must also automatically adjust datatypes between source databases and SQL server without requiring manual coding from developers. That’s why so many companies moving to SQL Server have turned to Qlik for a powerful SQL migration tool.
