What sets Parsaur apart from similar solutions on the market is that it not only translates code from one language to another but also converts the platform-specific capabilities and features that are the toughest nut to crack.
As such, it is an indispensable tool in any migration project. By automating otherwise manual processes, it brings standardisation, greater code consistency and lower error probability, requiring fewer development resources and enabling faster migration.
As a dino, Parsaur lived through a lot on his planet of code. He has seen many legacy systems and got acquainted with various databases…and even lived up to see the rise of the cloud.
But don’t be fooled. Even though he is a dinosaur, he’s no stranger to those systems. We could say he knows them to their bones. You see, he is a curious guy, our dino. Through his life on the code planet, he carefully studied their syntax, structures and functions down to the tiniest detail – so much so, that he made his own library.
No wonder he’s a regular team member on our projects. He roars through the code of your past and converts it into a skeleton for the future. Roar, roar!
Numerous compelling advantages of the new cloud-native platforms for data warehouse and data lake solutions, such as simplicity, elasticity, isolation or near-zero administration, are the reason why more and more organizations choose to move from an on-prem environment to the public cloud.
Considering that comprehensive analytical solutions have been in development for 5, 10, 15 or even more years, the biggest drawback to the move-to-the-cloud decision is migration. The larger the project, the more customized the existing system and the longer it has been in place, the more code and program logic needs to be converted.
There is always an option to do this manually, but the resources required, project duration and potential errors can make a migration project high risk. We have experienced this first-hand while working on several large migration projects over the last 5 years. For this reason, we decided to develop a solution capable of converting any kind of code (T-SQL, PL-SQL, Python, JSON, any type of an ETL job stored in an XML file or in any other definition language, etc.) into the dialect and capabilities of the chosen data platform.
Conversion is a “language” problem and as such, it is not a simple problem. You need to understand the context and all the specifics so that nothing is lost in translation. The translated output must retain the same logic, usually expressed through different capabilities.
For example, translating a SQL DDL statement between two platforms, is something you can easily do with domain knowledge, regular expressions and the “Find + Replace” functionality in Notepad++. On the other hand, converting a particular SQL stored procedure or PL-SQL package to another platform with different features and capabilities is a much more difficult problem. And the ability to solve such challenges represents the core on which Parasaur was built.
Data migration projects have a notorious reputation for being highly challenging, complex and prone to failure. With our approach and assets like Parasaur, we can make migrations more predictable.
