Clarify Infrastructure Upgrade Services for MS SQL and Oracle Customers

Are you running a Clarify version prior to Clarify 12.5? Is your Clarify database running on a version earlier than MS SQL Server 2005 or Oracle 10?


With the news that MS SQL 2000 will no longer be supported by Microsoft in March, we’ve been receiving a lot of inquiries this month about our Clarify Infrastructure Upgrade Services. While we haven’t marketed it as a service in the past, our team has extensive experience upgrading RDBMS Infrastructures for Clarify clients.


It’s very common for organizations that have implemented Clarify over the last 20 years to lag behind on the Clarify version they are running and for good reason. Clarify upgrades are costly, time-consuming and the new features are often not the best fit for their business model. If you’re running an older version of Clarify and need to upgrade your infrastructure, our Infrastructure Upgrade Services allow you to do that without upgrading your Clarify application.


Dovetail provides expertise, services and software that will help you successfully complete an infrastructure upgrade, and we can even provide technical support for your system when we’re done. A typical engagement includes:


  • Analysis of your current customizations
  • Recommendations for any necessary testing
  • Assistance with test planning as needed
  • Implementation of any Dovetail product required to ensure stability
  • Support throughout the project as needed
  • Ongoing support of your complete system
