Once the install is complete (and you can learn more about installation and setup as well as some valuable troubleshooting tips on our documentation page), how do you use the tool? And how do you examine the output? Take a look at this short video that walks your through how to use and what you can expect from this version of SnowConvert.

 

What does the Mobilize.Net SnowConvert Assessment Tool Beta include?

This limited release serves as an early preview of the conversion and assessment capabilities of SnowConvert. You can run any quantity of SQL and/or BTEQ files through the tool, and it will give you an assessment of the SQL that you have imported into the tool along with an estimate of the amount of code (based both on lines of code and object type) that has been automatically converted.  

You will also get the complete issues report (for both SQL and BTEQ files) that will detail every line of code that SnowConvert could not convert, and will report on why it couldn't be converted. This report will give you an excellent sense of how much work is left to do. (Remember to watch the demo above to learn more about interpreting the output.)

What does the Mobilize.Net SnowConvert Assessment Tool Beta NOT include?

Primarily, the output code. SnowConvert will perform all the necessary decisions to inventory the code that you have and determine how much of it will be converted automatically, but the actual converted code is not included in this release. If you'd like to get access to a full version of the tool, please contact us! You can fill out the form on this page or email us at info@mobilize.net.  

What about extraction and some demo code?

This version of SnowConvert will also not feature extraction. You will have to extract the .sql and .bteq files that you want to convert from your Teradata Data Warehouse, if you haven't already. Take care to ensure that your code will compile in Teradata before running it through Mobilize.Net SnowConvert. If it won't compile in Teradata, SnowConvert will not parse it correctly as Teradata SQL or BTEQ. If you'd like to see some sample extraction scripts, the experts at Mobilize.Net have made some available for you. We've also made some demo code available to you on our GitHub page as well, if you want to run something through the tool.
