Migrating a database from one system to another is one of the biggest challenges for developers and database administrators. The problem is made even worse if both databases are powerful and complex systems like MySQL and IBM DB2. That's why Intelligent Converters enhanced the family of database converters with new products to make bi-directional migration between MySQL and IBM DB2 straightforward and clear.
