Data Conversion

The ADABAS data extract and relational load process is simple and straightforward. During the process, all data is extracted and written to a set of sequential files that are ready to load to the new relational database target. The ADABAS data extracts are fast and can be executed simultaneously. Modern Systems can provide a number of extract variations for sites that have special requirements for a short ADABAS conversion window. Data conversion during the cut-over weekend or evening is always fast and complete.

  • Data Cleansing Workbench to provide rule-based data cleansing during the ADABAS data extract process
