Since starting at 2002 in the Bay Area, DB Best has been focusing on creating database/application migration tools and providing services. In 2005 Microsoft acquired DB Best Database Migration Suite, which became later SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) family of migration tools. The core technology developed by DB Best allowed easily and reliably port one SQL dialect to another one (e.g. PL/SQL to Transact-SQL). During the next few years DB Best has been supporting SSMA and creating new versions of it (SSMA for Oracle, Sybase, Access, and PowerBuilder).
DBBEST has developed proprietary tools and methodologies in the following areas to ensure delivery and minimize risk:
- Database Compare Suite - compare and synchronize content across the same or different database servers in a uniform way. There is no matter whether you are running SQL Server, Oracle or both, in any case you able to perform various types of replication using the same interface.
- OraMigrator - simple but effective solution for Oracle to SQL Server 2005/2008 data migration. The tool transfers data from Oracle tables to existing SQL Server tables in a few easy steps.
- T-SQL Analyzer - code analyzing tool for finding problematic spots in your Transact-SQL code in SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008. The tool analyzes stored procedures and user-defined functions in your SQL Server database against a predefined set of best practice rules.
While partnering with Microsoft and its customers DB Best has delivered hundreds of successful migration projects covering a variety of custom and packaged application migrations (e.g. Siebel, Peoplesoft, SAP, Axapta, etc.). With 100+ employees in 3 offices in US and Europe, DB Best provides rapid response and assistance to customers worldwide across industries.
DB Best can deliver migration projects end-to-end starting with migration complexity assessment through live deployment, or focus on certain phases of migration projects (for example, database schema conversion, modifying application source code to become compatible with SQL Server, converting Perl and shell scripts to run on SQL Server, creating data migration packages, etc).
