PowerBuilder to .NET Migration

by Peter Jonathan Instant Migration Tool
SoftSol’s PowerBuilder migration Tool which can perform migration of PowerBuilder applications to .Net. Our PowerBuilder migration tool automatically converts up to 95% of the source code to either Java or .NET. Even in cases where documentation is either limited or non-existent, SoftSol’s methodologies ensure that 100% of the legacy business logic is retained in the robust new target environment.This will enables accurate application analysis and reliable project timeline projection.

Additionally, it assists in identifying any unique technical challenges inherent to the migration.

ModernizeNow PB Migration

An automated tool that migrates almost 100% of the code accurately provides the most cost-effective solution over all other approaches. Various aspects of this approach – such as low risk, predictable cost, shortened schedule, minimum code-freeze time and no database migration –provides customers with the most value for money.The tool also assists in segregating the business and the data logic for migrating the PowerBuilder application to the .Net application.

SoftSol’s automated tool translates all PowerBuilder types to their equivalent supported types in Java. This includes data types such as integer, double, date time, any, blob and Array types. The automated tool also translates PowerBuilder literals and constants. Automated conversion (with some minimal manual intervention) as a replacement methodology saves all the investment in business knowledge and enables further development and maintenance in the new modern environment. Automatic conversion is much faster, much cheaper, and also ensures that all the business knowledge is preserved.

Migration Methodology

Migration to another platform requires a number of factors to be considered:

1) Existing investment in legacy applications and the significant cost of new application development.
2) Ensuring a rapid and smooth migration path from one infrastructure to another without disturbing critical production systems.

Smooth and reliable transformation preserving all of the needed business logic. Maintaining legacy software business logic is the important part of an organization's knowledge storage. The more valuable the encapsulation of the business logic software is, the more complex the process of its evolution.
