This year-long project focuses on creating two tools for CSG to assist them in their transition from an Oracle Exadata database to a cloud-based Snowflake database. The first tool is a web site with a dashboard displaying tables and charts containing data about the SQL queries still active on the Exadata system. The second tool is a command-line application that detects Oracle-specific keywords in SQL queries and attempts to make partial translations for certain common Oracle SQL keywords. By combining these tools, the team has created a dashboard that will ease CSG's transition to a cloud-based database.
