IBM Adds Sybase Migration Technology to IBM DB2By eWEEK Staff | Posted 2010-05-23 Email Print
Called DB2 SQL Skin, the new technology from IBM lets Sybase users move to DB2 with no changes to the application code. The technology was unveiled less than two weeks after SAP announced plans to acquire Sybase.
IBM is offering new technology that will allow Sybase users to move to IBM DB2 with virtually no changes to application code.
The technology is called DB2 SQL Skin, and will be sold to DB2 customers as a feature starting May 28. Developed jointly by IBM and ANTs Software, the technology is aimed at easing the migration of legacy applications compatible with Sybase ASE. SQL Skin allows SQL code such as queries and stored procedures from Sybase ASE to run natively and transparently against the DB2 DBMS with little-to-no changes to application code.
