Are you planning to upgrade to MAS? Performing a database archive before starting the upgrade process could prove a valuable step.
IBM recommends that you perform data archiving before a MAS upgrade to reduce the overall effort since upgrades and patching are much faster with less data in your system. You’ll also potentially eliminate errors and data issues which can impact the upgrade and facilitate a more successful transition to the MAS8 version overall.
Archiving with Alchemize simplifies, standardizes, and reduces the time and risks involved with archiving data for Maximo upgrades. The downtime is minimized, the risk is significantly reduced and you won’t lose access to your data. No other data archiving solution offers features available in Alchemize’s core product!
Whether your Maximo upgrade will be on-premises to on-premises, on-premises to cloud, or cloud to cloud, Alchemize intelligently automates complex processes involved with archiving data, while maintaining referential integrity and establishing repeatability.
With Alchemize already installed and configured for your data archive effort, the next migration step is a snap. Regardless of your Maximo database platform, Maxis works seamlessly with IBM using Alchemize to facilitate the MAS8 migration. It’s a no-brainer. Let Alchemize handle your archiving and migrating your Maximo database from Oracle or SQL Server to DB2 as part of your upgrade to MAS8.
