Highlights of Kovair QuickSync
Guaranteed Data Migration
Offers a built-in disaster recovery mechanism and re-migration capability to ensure 100% data migration with zero data loss.
Zero Downtime Migration
Migrates data in the background allowing users to use their tools during migration.
Reusable Template based migration
Supports template-based migration capability. Once the configuration is done for one project it can be reused for others.
Consistent Data Migration
Ensures data fidelity post migration by migrating records, attachments, comments, Rich Text Data and relationships between artifacts.
Provides on-screen monitoring of migration status providing a real-time update on the health of migration.
Provides the facility of parallel migration from multiple hosts to accommodate large volumes of data.

Select Your Tool
Kovair continuously adds new tool combinations for migration between a variety of tools. Pick any name from the tool migration list and ask for demonstration.
QuickSync, primarily a migration tool, also has capabilities for supporting real-time bidirectional data synchronization between a pair of tools. Post migration, during transition overlapping period, the synch service is required as users continue to work in the existing tool until data validation activities are completed on the new one.
Data Migration from Source to Multiple Target Tools
QuickSync can migrate data from one source to multiple target tools based on the artifact type. For example, in a scenario where the source is an ALM tool like HP ALM / Rally / Kovair and the target is a suite of multiple tools like Jazz consisting of RDNG, RQM and RTC, if there is a need for migration of Requirements to RDNG, Tests to RQM, and Defects to RTC, then QuickSync is well capable of addressing such migration scenario.
QuickSync provides an intuitive UI with simplistic drag-n-drop configurability. Users can quickly configure the metadata mapping and define migration rules as well as operate and monitor the actual data migration process. No separate training time is required for the users to work on QuickSync.
Support for Multiple Databases
QuickSync provides the option to select a database based on the volume of data to be migrated. Users can select from SQL Lite, MySQL for smaller volume of data migration or MS SQL Server and Oracle for larger volume of data migration.
Migration Support from One or Multiple Hosts
In large organizations, migration of large number of projects with high data volume is a common scenario. Along with data accuracy, it is important to complete the entire migration on time. In such a scenario, it is often required that the migration runs from multiple hosts scaling the entire process horizontally.
QuickSync provides the facility to opt for a single host or multiple hosts environment depending on the data volume to be migrated. This allows the migration process to work in parallel, ensuring faster and on-time completion of the job.
Single Window Monitoring
QuickSync provides single window interface for monitoring migration work running from multiple hosts. Users can view the entire progress of work from a single interface in a cost-effective manner by eliminating the need for dedicated resources for tracking and managing migration activities occurring every individual host.
Migration Support of Data and Links
Along with migration of records, QuickSync also migrates traceability links existing between the migrated artifacts. These traceability links can be direct tool level links, Http links or OSLC links. QuickSync offers the same support during synchronization.
Migration Support for Rich Data
QuickSync offers extensible support for migrating and synchronizing rich text data (if supported by target tool) in terms of system and custom attributes for each of the exposed entities, comments, and attachments of individual records as well as the traceability relationship between them.
No-Host Dependent Configuration
In a multi-host migration environment, QuickSync offers a common single interface through which any project pair can be configured from any host. This eliminates the stringency of configuring and executing a project pair from a specific host. It offers a flexibility that if a host is occupied for some reason, then another host can be used to configure the second project pair assigned to that same host. Hence, no time is lost in waiting for the first one to complete and then initiate the work for the second one.
Support for Overriding
QuickSync enables migration rules to be defined with or without conditions for creating the record that needs to be migrate. During the actual migration, users can also override the pre-defined migration rules by setting different migration criteria.
Side-by-Side Comparison for Easy Data Validation
Post migration, validating and verifying the migrated data is an important activity in the migration process. The simpler and more structured the interface, the faster is the process of validating the migrated data.
QuickSync provides a single consolidated interface through which the source data and the corresponding migrated record in the target is displayed side-by-side in a tabular format. This facilitates quick comparison of the source records with the migrated ones. In addition, if required, users can further drill down to do a comparison for each of the record pairs at field level.
Once the data related problem in the source record is fixed, QuickSync not only allows users to validate the record side-by-side but also allows users to migrate the same record-by-record. Using the Sanity Check screen, users can select the erroneous records and do a forced resync. QuickSync pushes this specific record to the target, thereby saving time and effort from re-running the entire migration set all over again and focusing only on the failed items.
Automated Data Validation Using Data Checker
QuickSync provides the capability to configure a job that would run asynchronously to auto validate the migrated or synched data between the source and the target tools. The validation is performed based on the field mapping definition configured in QuickSync tool and comparing those with the field values from the source and the target tools. It also compares the count of attachments per record between the source and the target. QuickSync produces an HTML report that would help the users to analyze any data discrepancies. The same report can be generated in the form of a spreadsheet too.
Re-Execution of Error item(s)
Apart from selective resynching of specific failed items, QuickSync provides an additional interface for bulk re-execution of all failed items. A dedicated page is provided enlisting all those records that have failed to migrate due to certain reasons. Once those data related errors are rectified, QuickSync allows you to re-execute all the error items in one shot. This re-execution will trigger the initiation of the migration process of all the error items one-by-one and successfully insert or update those into the target tool.
Metrics for Monitoring
QuickSync provides various graphical reports for on-screen health monitoring. It helps to visualize of data migration or synchronization in hours, days or months.
