New Table Data Processing Options

You may request the Package Install to use ALTER TABLE to change the table, which does not require data to be loaded and unloaded. If the type of change is not supported, it will automatically fall back to the existing mechanism which is now called Universal Data Processing.

You may completely replace the table upgrade process with your own SQL. You could, for example, use “SELECT INTO” style logic to more quickly update very large tables that cannot be updated using ALTER TABLE.
