Migrating an existing database to SQL Server can be a taunting task. No matter if your current database is Oracle, Sybase, DB2 or MySQL, the core of the migration tasks are almost always identical. A SQL Server database migration project can be broken down into 6 steps.

Keeping up with the news from so many different sources is getting harder and harder these days. That’s why I try to offer a one-stop-shop for your major database vendor news. You get the scoop and if you want to dig deeper, the links are right there. Let’s get started.
I am not anticipating any new Sybase ASE version before this summer. None are announced. This is due to the massive efforts of certifying SAP R/3 on Sybase ASE, which is expected by the end of Q2. There were many joined events between SAP and Sybase since Sybase’s acquisition by SAP. The most notable is SAP TechED. The latest was in Berlin and drew a lot of interest, especially into Sybase mobility as well as Sybase IQ and ASE.
This year Sybase TechWave 2011 will be hosted within the SAP TechED USA in Las Vegas. This is the much needed boost for Sybase to a larger audience.
This might be the best kept secret ever. I can’t believe that this is not more known to the public. That’s why I want to share this with you.
Sybase released Sybase ASE 15 Express. Free to use on Linux. The restrictions to use it for free are well in the limits of most MySQL databases running millions of websites.
