How Do We Migrate Teradata to the Cloud?

Once pioneers in the Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) space, Teradata is now deemed as legacy. Organizations with ambitions of moving to cloud-native environments for data warehouse and advanced analytic capabilities are shackled to the legacy Teradata world, including high licensing costs, inability to perform advanced analytics, and their complex library of functions and commands. These include BTEQ, FastLoad, MultiLoad, TPT, and various others. Cloud-native vendors do not have support for these functions, which simply put, block organization’s cloud migration ambitions. However, SHIFT™ fixes this problem - giving enterprises the ability to quickly translate Teradata utilities to their cloud target through automation.

Automate Migration Planning

1. Automate Planning & Assessment Activities

  • We leverage Crawler360™ to identify the workloads within the Teradata 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 Teradata, to develop the migration plan for repointing those pipelines to the cloud target.
  • SHIFT™ ANALYZER will scan the Teradata 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 Teradata SQL and Stored Procedure code, as well as proprietary functions to the target cloud platform syntax including:
    • BTEQ Commands,
    • FastLoad Commands,
    • Multiload Commands,
    • FastExport Commands,
    • TPT Statements
    • TPT Operators 
  • Further, our team leverages a vast knowledge base of solutions to help address common Teradata to cloud implementation scenarios. We'll get your legacy Teradata code 100% translated and QA-ready incredibly fast, so you can begin QA cycles immediately and with higher confidence.
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.
