Version 3 of SAP Advanced SQL Migration is now available

SAP’s Advanced SQL Migration tool greatly simplifies migration of custom applications to SAP, removing as much as 90% of complexities. Version 3 has just been released.


SAP Advanced SQL Migration supports the following source DBMS types:
• Oracle; versions 9, 10, 11
• Microsoft SQL Server; version 2000s – 2012
• IBM DB2 UDB for LUW; version 9.x (NB: PL/SQL-compatible extensions are not actively migrated, although some aspects may be converted correctly)
• Teradata, version 14 or later Note: Teradata can only be migrated to SAP Hana
For all of these source DBMS types, later (or earlier) versions than listed above have not been actively tested. The migration tool may however still work for such versions, or work partially.
Currently, the following target DBMS types and -versions are supported:
  • • SAP Hana 2 SP03 Rev31 (or later) – generating Hana SQL/SQLScript syntax
  • • SAP ASE version 16 SP03 (or later) – generating ASE T-SQL syntax
  • • SAP IQ version 16.1 (or later) – generating Watcom SQL syntax
  • • SAP SQL Anywhere version 17 – generating Watcom SQL syntax

Find out more about Frequently Asked Questions. 

This excellent tool is available for use only by SAP and its partners.  Get in touch to explore how it could help your migration project.

Automatic Memory Management with SAP Replication Server 16.0 SP03 PL04

In SAP Replication Server releases prior to 16.0 SP03 PL04, the replication involving multiple databases was resource intensive and complex. With automatic memory management enhanced in 16.0 SP03 PL04, SAP Replication Server supports you to replicate multiple databases (certificated with 20) in parallel with the simpler configuration steps and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Thus, with this feature enabled, SAP Replication Server performs much better when you manage multiple pairs of databases in the HADR and non-HADR environments.
