PowerBuilder to .NET Migration

Rapid technological changes deteriorate the value of legacy systems including PowerBuilder which was considered one of the robust Rapid Application Development (RAD) tools for object-oriented programming client/ server and n-tier development. Legacy PowerBuilder applications lack scalability, carry heavy maintenance costs, limited delivery schedules and face the challenge of a diminishing labor pool. These legacy applications can be migrated to modern technologies such as .NET to achieve rich user experience with high reliability, maintainability and scalability.

Business Challenges:

The lack of support and scalability for Power Builder applications puts the system’s data integrity at risk and when the current system does not provide the required functionality, the system fails, posing an additional risk of not providing the timely information required for legal compliance. The business challenges in migrating PowerBuilder applications are:

  • Lack of Support for existing databases
  • Unavailability of resources with PowerBuilder skill set
  • PowerBuilder no longer a mainstream development platform
  • Increasing maintenance Costs of business applications
  • Lack of scalable, reliable and high performance business applications
  • Lack of web capabilities
  • Lack of sophisticated User experience and usability
