FmPro Migration Service - Including support for FileMaker® Pro to
MySQL, Oracle®, Access, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase®
and and DB2® migrations
.com Solutions Inc. has enhanced its service offerings to include the fixed-price FmPro Migration Service for FileMaker Pro database migrations. Database migration targets include MySQL, Oracle, Access, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase and DB2. The FmPro Migration Service enables IT Managers to economically migrate valuable data located in FileMaker Pro databases for use throughout their enterprise. Challenging data types such as JPEG images and large text fields are quickly and accurately migrated to corporate database servers by the FmPro Migration Service.
Features of the FmPro Migration Service include:
Economical Pricing - The FmPro Migration Service provides a very economical alternative to purchasing and supporting specialized computer hardware which will only be utilized for the migration process. Not having to hire additional employees or high-priced consultants on an hourly basis can also quickly add up to big savings for IT budgets.
Variety of Output Formats Supported - Output file formats are based upon the appropriate format commonly used for each destination database. For a complete list of supported output file formats, please see the table of supported databases.
Automated Procedures Improve Accuracy - Manual database migration procedures can take days or even weeks and introduce errors in database structure and records. This is especially true for large sophisticated FileMaker Pro solutions such as Optigold ISP. A FileMaker Optigold client database file contains over 700 fields! FileMaker Pro databases with this many fields are simply impractical to migrate via manual procedures. A customized version of the FmPro Migrator utility is used to automate these time consuming and complex database migration tasks.
Economical Database Web Hosting - Virtually every ISP offers inexpensive MySQL database hosting with their hosting plans. Some ISPs even offer free MySQL database hosting after payment of a minimal setup fee. By migrating data to MySQL, customers have a wider choice of database hosting providers compared to looking for FileMaker Pro hosting providers.
Improved Scalability - FileMaker Pro is optimized for workgroup applications with generally fewer than 250 simultaneous users. Migrating FileMaker Pro data to MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase or DB2 leverages existing investments in these highly scalable databases capable of handling thousands of simultaneous users.
Experience - .com Solutions Inc. is a FileMaker Solutions Alliance member with 17 years of FileMaker Pro development experience. This experience spans FileMaker revisions 1.0 thru 6.0, Oracle 8.0.5 thru 9.2.0, SQL Server 6.5 thru 2000, MySQL 4.0.12 and DB2 8.1.
Customers with special data confidentiality needs may request alternate migration procedures in order to avoid sending their proprietary data off-site. These options include a scripts-only service, or customer use of the specialized version of FmPro Migrator software which is utilized by this service. Please send email or call for details.
