We talk to a lot of clients who want to perform database migrations but just about all of them are skeptical that the project will be a success. There are a number of reasons for this, including:
- Lack of time to take on project
- Belief that their usage isn’t easy convertible to a new platform
- Resource (people) issues, i.e lack of people or lack of knowledge of old system.
- Concern about trading one evil for another
Each one of the above have stopped thoughts about migration from being voiced as well as stopped projects after the initial discussions. The fact is that migrations can be scary, take too long and cost too much. Especially if you don’t have experience with them. That is where we fit in. OpenSCG can help you put these projects into perspective and alleviate your concerns. We have been doing migrations for a long time and have performed a ton of them ranging from simple to very complex.
OpenSCG not only does the database migration but we can also migrate the application thus alleviating your staff of that burden. Our goal is to minimize the impact of a database change on your organization and get your staff ready to support and use the new system.
Our migration experts follow a proven methodology that has allowed us to help dozens of companies switch out their old database with the highly capable and cost effective open source PostgreSQL database. You can read more about our approach in our Migration Whitepaper.
Migrations can indeed be successful if you start with the right knowledge and work with the right partner. So, if you are interested or ever considered migrating to PostgreSQL, take a look at what we can do and don’t be afraid to take the next step and contact us Today!
