Saturday 13' March 2010

I am surprised that no one yet has mentioned today's Bits du Jour offer, as it is out of the ordinary: Full Convert Enterprise, 90% discounted: $300 > $30 ! But here you are for another 11 hours:

New to database migration? Just use Full Convert Enterprise's Project Settings Wizard to set up connections and choose tables for conversion, then save your configuration for one-click repeated use. Once you've gotten the hang of it, you can switch to the command-line interface and let your fingers fly!

Just for the record and to get a grip of the long term license cost:
"To renew upgrade license for the next 12 months, price is $119 per license."  - Damir Bulic, Spectral Core

Hi Folks,

Actually they are playing nice.  I asked over there.  The first 12 months you are a full registrant.

a) After 12 months, if you still want to upgrade, you will pay $119 and be able to download for 12 more months which ever version is current.

b) App never loses functionality. What you installed will work forever. However, keep your downloaded installer - if your upgrade license expires,you won't be able to download from our site anymore as we don't keep old versions.

c) If you purchase now for just 10% of the standard price, we still give you standard 12 months of free upgrades, starting with the purchase date. All further renewals afterwards go with standard pricing, of course.

If it helps with one database conversion, at $29 you are ahead of the game.  

On the other hand, a lot of what you might want to do might have database importers to your target .. in that case this software might help with automating, which would not be a factor for a one-time converter, one real question is which does a better job on the conversion.  There are always issues with data types and such.

Shalom,
Steven Avery

Hi Folks,

Here is my question, looking ahead. (Presuming that the discount may be extendable, or come back in the future.)

Those of you who do occasional conversions .. e.g. to MySQL from Access, Dbase or Excel (these would be the most likely ... plus the possibility in the future of Filemaker) .. do you have any difficulties finding freeware or inexpensive tools that do a competent job ?

Have any of you compared the "Full Convert" product  ?  Clearly it has some automation and interface and command-line features that might help an enterprise environment, how about the small and simple data conversion ?  Any significant benefits over the common tools, whatever they are.

Shalom,
Steven
