Application migrations typically fall into two major categories. Specifically;
Update of Embedded SQL statements within your existing application environment
After the migration of a database environment, many applications need substantial retooling to update any statements that contain SQL language to execute against the newly migrated database. Using automated tools and/or professional services, we are able to effectively parse, identify and update the appropriate lines with the application codebase to execute properly against the new database technology.
Transformation of an existing application source into a new programmatic language
When antiquated legacy codebases such as COBOL, 4GL, Delphi and RPG exist, the imperative is to migrate the applications into best of breed programing environments. These include both Visual Studio and Java. Using automated tools and/or professional services, we are able to effectively migrate these applications into the desired programming languages, thus allowing two major advantages;
- Decommissioning of the legacy code in favor superior Integrated Development Environments (Visual Studio, .NET)
- Far greater availability of human resources for new coding initiatives
