SQL Server migration experts
Historically, ANSI SQL was created to make it easier for users of the SQL language to work across different database engines. However, database vendors created extensions like PL/SQL, Transact SQL, DB2 SQL, etc. This approach complicates any migration effort and binds the users to a certain technology. The core idea is that once these vendors lock a user into their extensions, it will be harder for customers to move to another database platform.
