Automate Migration Planning

1. Automate Planning & Assessment Activities

  • We leverage Crawler360™ to identify the workloads within the SQL Server environment that are migration candidates, in order to define the appropriate migration approach. Further, Crawler360™ will provide a lineage view for the data pipelines feeding SQL Server (such as SSIS) to develop the migration plan for repointing those pipelines to the cloud target.
  • SHIFT™ ANALYZER will scan the SQL Server applications to identify the complete code inventory, complexity of objects and "x-factors" that will require custom solutions when moving to the cloud.
Automating Code Translation

2. Automating Code Translation

  • SHIFT™ TRANSLATOR will automatically translate all SQL and Stored Procedure code, as well as SSIS job packages to the target platform SQL syntax. 
  • Our 4-point QA process will automatically test, validate and optimize your code to get it 100% Integration Test ready, fast. 
Managing and Accelerating Cut-Over

3. Managing and Accelerating Cut-Over

  • SHIFT™ TESTER will automate key aspects of ETL code and data validation testing when completing the migration project, in order to accelerate end-to-end testing efforts. This ensures all translated code compiles and executes with the expected results in the cloud target.
  • Crawler360™ will identify dependencies to downstream applications like BI or Analytics tools, in order to define the appropriate migration approach while identifying optimization and consolidation opportunities along the way.
