Migratory data

Easily migrate data among different databases with this kit.

Years spent in the database industry tend to impart a keen sense of the difficulties involved in the common yet Herculean task of migrating large amounts of data between different databases using completely different file formats and structures, and a keen sense of sympathy for the database administrators who often work all night to make it happen. Help is available in the form of an affordable enterprise-level database migration tool, DTM Migration Kit from DTM Soft. It's a powerful, flexible and, at only 1.26MB, compact utility that can automatically import, export, and migrate data from ODBC, IDAPI, and Oracle Call Interface sources. It supports nearly every popular major database format, so it's especially useful for migrating data between multiple different databases, which is not unusual in an enterprise environment that's been running databases for a long time and has periodically upgraded or switched platforms.

The latest release of DTM Migration Kit boasts several enhancements to the user's interface as well as the capability to configure independent settings for default source and target connections, a new send mail rule, and more user options. There's a command line mode, too. The main interface and properties dialogs are plain and functional.

DTM Migration Kit is free to try, but it's limited to importing or exporting six rows of data during the trial period. It's $159 to buy, which is peanuts compared with other enterprise-level solutions. A true Win32 app, it's certified for Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 as well as Server 2003 and 2008.
