As all the phases of this process are highly automated, the conversion results are very consistent. The output results are further verified by a large storehouse of test cases created by the agency. Members of the organization assist in the conversion process. The conversion process takes care of everything from DDL to server-side business logic and front-end application conversion. There is a sample conversion phase offered by the agency. You could get a small set of data converted to check out the process adopted. Target platform migration tools can be included in the conversion process. The production phase of the process takes care of database schema/DDL, server side business logic procedures and triggers, front end applications and scripts, application conversion, etc.
