Trust the experts who built SQL Server Migration Assistant for Microsoft
DB Best developed a state-of-the-art database migration technology, which was subsequently acquired by Microsoft SQL Server group in 2005, becoming the foundation for the Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) product line. SSMA is free and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center. Our experience includes all major databases, such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase, Access, MySQL, and IBM DB2. Over the years, we’ve helped hundreds of our customers create cost-effective solutions for modernizing and migrating their applications to the Microsoft platform.
DB Best helped Microsoft maintain SSMA, and has provided support for the tool over the years. Our DB Best database experts have seen it all using SSMA to help customers migrate to Microsoft SQL Server from Oracle, IBM DB2, Sybase ASE, Microsoft Access and MySQL databases. Despite some shortcomings in SSMA, our team of experts can implement workarounds to ensure converted code works correctly in SQL Server.

Running outdated versions of your database engine?
If you are running outdated versions of your Oracle Database, SAP ASE (formally Sybase), IBM DB2 and other platforms, you might be running the risk of not having the latest in security and high availability features that newer versions have. Once you hear how much Oracle, SAP, and IBM want to charge you to “true-up” your database license, you might want to consider migrating to Microsoft SQL Server with all of the latest features built-in without having to buy additional option licenses.
We’ve had hundreds of customers come to us looking for ways to better understand the migration costs and what it takes to get the most out of Microsoft SQL Server and Azure SQL Database.
