Compare and Synchronize IBM DB2 Databases with DTM Data Comparer

DTM Data Comparer provides DBA or database developer a visual way to compare or even synchronize DB2 databases. However, unattended console mode for scheduled comparison and synchronization is also available.

DTM Data Comparer fetches data rows of tables to be compared basing on the order of ascending of primary key or user defined unique key values. If the program can't find data rows with the same key value, it places the records to different grid lines and highlights row by the yellow background. In case values of the keys coincide, the program places them to the same lines and highlights cells for equal fields by green background and different fields by the red background.

The comparison tool provides a way to compare tables with a different structure. It is a column mapping feature. Moreover, some conversion by built-in DB2 functions can be applied to target table during data synchronization. For example, the user can change date format by DATE function.
