Informix Data Conversion

DSW’s Director (Neil Stevenson) was involved with the initial design of Axiom Business Computers V3 Solicitors Accounting System so DSW are well positioned to provide Data Conversion services for the Axiom system.

What we provide – DSW will go to the customers site and extract a copy of the database from the Informix Database Engine. This data will then be transported to our offices and loaded onto our dedicated conversion server. A set of conversion routines (developed by DSW) will then be ran on the data which will create a set of pipe (‘|’) delimited files. These files will then be encrypted and sent to you through a secure transport. The preferred method here is via SFTP to your system.

Will a test transfer be performmed – Yes, we normally run a test transfer several weeks before the required live transfer.

Can the format of the output files be changed – Yes, DSW are happy to discuss any of your specific conversion requirements.

Do you only convert Cash Accounting – No, we also provide services to convert the Time Recording and Document Indexing systems.

DSW can also provide data extraction services for any Informix Database no matter how old the system is.
