Why not just read what all is there in the SQL Server transaction logs and then convert the hex data into desired format in Business layer?

Converting it in SQL would be difficult and tricky.

To be able get human readable transaction log you need to use some of the tool that decodes transaction log. Here is one transaction log reader tool[^] that can read transaction log and present you complete information stored in transaction log.

Other option is to try with
but it also gives data in hex format that’s not really easy to read.

The reason transcation log can’t be read easily is because it’s not really meant to be read but to ensure transaction consitancy.
