NPM DDBB Lightweight installation to Standard Installation

We were testing NPM with the Lightweight installation to show solarwinds to a client.

We were monitoring a lot devices and configured maps, universal device poller, custom properties, views, etc

Now our client want to move all devices that we tested and solarwinds to the production enviroment.

Is there a way to migrate the database from SQLExpress to a SQL 2016 or SQL 2017? Is SQLExpress compatible with SQL 2016/2017?

We would like to avoid start from scrach but we would like to know too if the migration is problematic and can be a headache.
