Title

FM & SQL Backend

Post

Hi, our business has bought File Maker Pro 12 (not server), developed it on a local PC, already created a load of forms\data and wants to roll it out to our wider business. We in IT are saying we might be able to give better support if the back end data was on one of our SQL Server 2008 R2 servers (esp in terms of backups and availability).

Can you please let me know if we'd get much benefit from doing this, and whether you know of a migration tool to move all the data in the FM files into a SQL Server 2008 R2 Database. We'd want the front end apps\forms etc to continue as they were built. 

Thanks
