What is SWIFTReverse ?
SWIFTReverse is used to extract all the setups from
an existing Oracle instance and merge these setups
into the SWIFTSuite KnowledgeBase.
Why should I use SWIFTReverse ?
As your existing Oracle system reaches the end of its
operational life it contains accumulated sum of
knowledge that represents a significant investment for
your business. You may choose to defer transferring
that knowledge to a new application because of the
expense and continue to use the antiquated
technology as long as you can, risking issues such as
de-support for the existing legacy products and lack of
skilled consulting support.
SWIFTReverse offers you an alternative. Your vast
store of knowledge can be incorporated into a
knowledgebase of business configurations. At the
touch of a button, all of this knowledge can now
become accessible when you are ready to begin the
life cycle all over again – and build a brand new
solution. You no longer need to throw away that vast
store of knowledge or spend countless hours
programming a migration.
SWIFTReverse can also be used to merge several
Oracle instances into one. Simply reverse each
instance into the knowledgebase repository and then
selectively include or exclude what you need to keep
or what you want to dispose of.
