Entrinsik Launches SQL Migration Tool for Ellucian Colleague Users

Posted on August 23rd 2012

As an Ellucian Partner, Entrinsik is committed to helping Ellucian Colleague® users retain their investment in Informer after converting their Colleague database from UniData® to Microsoft SQL.

In support of that commitment, Entrinsik just announced the availability of a FREE tool that will assist Ellucian Colleague users in migrating their Informer UniData-based mappings and reports to a SQL environment.

“We recognize that our Colleague-based clients have a huge investment in Informer, in terms of both time and effort,” says Tim Nicholson, Director of Informer Customer Service. “Given our well-established relationship with the Ellucian Colleague users community, we understand reporting requirements and the data structure, making the development of a utility such as this possible.”

The utility will aid in reducing the cost of migrating reports to run on Colleague SQL. 

“In one of our tests, the utility processed 1,094 reports and 434 mappings in 34 minutes,” says Tim. “That is a significant savings when compared to the amount of time and resources it would take to map and link the additional SQL tables and rewrite the reports manually. While it is not capable of converting 100% of the reports, the utility can certainly move you forward much faster than doing it all by hand.”

To help you best leverage this FREE tool to ease the migration process, Entrinsik is offering a special Training & Implementation package for those Ellucian Colleague users wanting to take advantage of the tool.

When you purchase this package, Entrinsik will run the migration for you and perform an initial post-conversion review, freeing up your technical resources to focus on the data conversion. Also provided is a 30-minute training session on the differences when using Informer in a SQL datasource.
