Our expertise in Migration

OnPrem Legacy to Cloud

Business Challenge

  • Integrations were written in legacy application more than 15 years ago, no support for the tool from vendor
  • As this is written in long back, data models used are so complex and standards used are not up to date
  • Tracking, Trackability of any transactions is limited
  • Any changes required cant be developed as tool requires old browser and IDE is also not updated

Solution Provided

  • Used Apache Camel K which is nextgen and light weight integration tool and can run on K8s platform
  • For Scheduling used AirFlow as Client wants all scheduling to be tracked separately.
  • Kibana used for logging and tracing purpose – dashboards & alerts are created on Kibana
  • Apache Kafka is used for messaging purpose

Industry:  Retail

Application Type:  Cloud

Application Language:  Java

Number of Programs or Lines of Code:  Per integration around 100 – 1000 based on Data Model Complexity

Source Database:  Oracle

Target Database:  MSSQL

Application Name:  Oracle EBS (Oracle E-Business Suite, similar to ERP)

The application is to maintain GDW (Global Data Warehouse) for all organization data.

Business Benefit

  • Significantly expanded IT’s ability to support customer transactions digitally
  • Significantly reduced the costing as Apache Camel K is open source
  • Automated back-office processes associated with services, as we moved towards nextgen technology
  • 100% uptime with Autoscaling feature of Camel K

Neo4J to Mongo DB

Industry:  Design & Integrations

Application Type:  Client Server

Application Language:  Java

Number of Programs or Lines of Code:  Approximately 30+ programs including DB Schemas

Source Database:  Neo4J

Target Database:  Mongo DB

Application Name:  Custom Application

Migrating from Neo4j to MongoDB involves transitioning from a graph-based database to a document-oriented NoSQL database. This process includes mapping nodes and relationships from Neo4j to MongoDB documents and collections. The migration aims to leverage MongoDB's scalability and flexibility for handling complex queries and large datasets. Key steps include data extraction from Neo4j, transformation into JSON format, and loading into MongoDB. This migration enhances performance and supports a wider range of data operations, ensuring efficient storage and retrieval of hierarchical data structures.

SAP Sybase ASE to PostgreSQL (Cloud)

Industry:  Design & Integrations

Application Type:  On-prem to Cloud

Application Language:  Java

Number of Programs or Lines of Code:  Approximately 40+ programs including DB Schemas

Source Database:  Sybase

Target Database:  PostgreSQL

Application Name:  SAP

Migrating from SAP Sybase ASE to PostgreSQL involves transitioning from a proprietary relational database to an open-source alternative known for its robustness and advanced features. The process includes schema conversion, data migration, and application code modifications to ensure compatibility. Tools like pgAdmin and custom scripts facilitate the data transfer and schema adjustments. This migration aims to reduce licensing costs, improve performance, and enhance scalability, while benefiting from PostgreSQL's active community support and extensive feature set.

Alfresco to Liferay Application

Industry:  Design & Integrations

Application Type:  3-tire

Application Language:  Java

Number of Programs or Lines of Code:  Approximately 40+ programs including DB Schemas

Source Database:  Oracle

Target Database:  MySQL

Application Name:  Alfresco & Liferay

Migrating from Alfresco to Liferay involves moving from a content management system to a comprehensive digital experience platform. Concurrently, transitioning from Oracle to MySQL entails shifting from a commercial database to an open-source relational database. This dual migration includes data extraction from Alfresco and Oracle, transformation into formats compatible with Liferay and MySQL, and loading into the new systems. The process improves cost-efficiency, enhances platform capabilities, and ensures seamless content management and collaboration. The migration leverages Liferay's modularity and MySQL's ease of use and reliability.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I ensure the security of my data during migration?

To ensure the security of your data during migration:

  • Use encrypted connections for data transfer.
  • Employ robust authentication methods.
  • Regularly update security protocols and software.
  • Perform vulnerability assessments and penetration testing.
  • Work with trusted and experienced migration service providers who adhere to industry best practices.
How long does the migration process take?

The duration of the migration process varies depending on the complexity and volume of the data and applications being moved. Simple migrations can take a few hours to a few days, while more complex migrations may take several weeks or even months. Proper planning and resource allocation can help streamline the process and minimize downtime.

What challenges might I face during migration, and how can they be mitigated?

Common challenges include data loss, downtime, compatibility issues, and security concerns. These can be mitigated by thorough planning, performing regular backups, conducting detailed testing, and using reliable migration tools. Engaging experienced migration specialists can also help navigate these challenges effectively.

What types of data and applications can be migrated?

Virtually any type of data and application can be migrated, including databases, files, enterprise applications (such as CRM and ERP systems), web applications, email systems, and virtual machines. The specific approach and tools used may vary depending on the type and complexity of the data and applications being migrated, as well as the source and target environments.

What are the costs associated with data/application migration?

The costs of data/application migration can vary widely based on factors such as the size and complexity of the data, the type of applications being moved, the migration approach and tools used, and the specific requirements of the project. Costs may include expenses for planning and assessment, data transfer, downtime, post-migration testing and optimization, and ongoing support. It’s essential to work with a migration provider to get a detailed cost estimate tailored to your specific needs.
