For over a decade companies worldwide have used SmartDB Workbench and SmartDB Intelligent Adapters for migrating their data to Oracle Applications. Having been around for 10 years, the SmartDB Workbench is very robust. The Intelligent Adapters that SmartDB provide support Oracle Apps 10.7, 11.0.x and 11i (including 11.5.10). Information on all these products can be found at http://www.smartdbcorp.com.

The pre-built Adapters that SmartDB provide reduce the time and cost of migrating data to Oracle or upgrading one version of Oracle to another or consolidating multiple Oracle Apps instances into one.

THese tools are really easy to use and very cost effective. Some users claim that no Oracle Apps shop should be without SmartDB.

Can it also be used with the legacy datamig to oracle apps? what are the controlls/dynamics it provides with respect to master,static and dynamic data. What is the level of automation available from the huge data capture from multiple platforms and consolidating?

thanks,

Hi “Newbie”,
Yes, SmartDB can be used for legacy data migrations. In fact, prior to Y2K (that seems a long time ago) hundreds of companies used SmartDB to migrate their legacy data to Oracle. Today’s “legacy” systems are older versions of Oracle, Peoplesoft, JD Edwards etc. and SmartDB is still a best-of-breed tool for doing data migrations to 11i.

The pre-built Adapters available from SmartDB cover most master data entities (e.g. items, customers) as well as transactional data entities (e.g. gl journals, ap invoices, etc.). These adapters handle all necessary transformations and validations of the data and deliver quality data to Oracle via supported interfaces (Open Interface Tables and APIs). Detailed logfiles are created to identiy and correct bad and discarded source data.

SmartDB is also very suited to the consolidation of multiple systems and largely automates the consolidation process. Check out some of the case studies at http://www.smartdbcorp.com/cat7.php?catID=8

Hi,

Is this tool good for loading GL segment values :  that is we want to load only the “Parent Values” into the Natural Account segment,  if not, is there any other tool that we can use and accomplish this task easily,

Thanks in advance for all suggestions,

Regds,
