Application Migration

Application Migration Services

We live in an area of upgrades. Change is a constant and advances in technology often means upgrading to newer and better applications or solutions. Change is for the better but the migration process can be fraught with challenges. Allow Abile to step in and handle this for you with our reputation for Ability and Agility.

Our Application Migration services help organizations deal with their out-dated technologies. We address issues wherein applications span multiple databases, languages and different systems and offer migration solutions that allow seamless migration of applications from one environment to another. Through our migration solutions, we enable organizations to manage and structure their IT architecture and thereby, minimize their IT investments and enhance business performance. We provide pre and post migration support and ensure that the migration process is a smooth transition from one platform to another without any undue performance lapse or process stagnation.

Migration Database

Data migration is translation of data from one format to another format or from one storage device to another storage device. Data migration is necessary when we upgrade database or system software, either from one version to another or from one program to an entirely different program. For instance, when a retail outlet upgrades or changes billing system or software. Software can be specifically written, using entire programs or just scripts, to facilitate data migration. Another use of data migration is to store little-used data on magnetic tape or other backup storage methods. This data may need to be stored for historical purposes or for periodic access. Individual computer users do this all the time when they back up their data to CDs, DVDs, or external hard drives. Migrated data typically is moved offline but remains available via network access, leaving the online environment free to conduct current business.

SQL to Oracle Migration

Microsoft SQL Server is a computer application used to create desktop, enterprise, and web-based database systems. It is used at different levels and with various goals. Oracle is a powerful relational database management system that offers a large feature set. Along with Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle is widely regarded as one of the two most popular full-featured database systems in the market today.

ASP to ASP.NET Migration

Migration from ASP to ASP.NET can drastically improve the performance of your applications. Software created using ASP.NET is more robust, scalable, reliable, and secure as compared to the software created using ASP. ASP.NET, which is a new version of ASP, removes all the shortcomings of ASP. For example, it removes tier confusion from the code (by providing an easy way to separate presentation layer, business logic layer, and database layer), it allows code compilation instead of code interpretation, and provides CLR (Common Language Runtime) for built in garbage collection to avoid memory leaks.

VB to VB.NET Migration

Visual Basic (VB) was one of the first products to provide a graphical programming environment and a paint metaphor for developing user interfaces. Visual Basic is sometimes called a Rapid Application Development (RAD) system because it enables programmers to quickly build prototype applications. The significant advantage of migrating from VB to VB.NET is that it is purely object oriented. Moreover, it provides managed code execution that makes the application more robust, stable, and secure. There are two strategies through which you can migrate from VB to VB.NET

1. Migration Wizard

In .NET Framework IDE, Visual Studio.NET, you can find a Visual Basic Upgrade Wizard that helps migrate your Visual Basic application to VB.NET. But through this wizard you cannot upgrade all the VB to VB.NET. You have to manually make some modifications. This wizard produces a report in HTML format suggesting the places where it failed to modify the VB to VB.NET.

2. Fresh Design

You have to redesign certain core blocks or modules of the application or redesign the entire application to shift to VB.NET. Though you can reuse existing components, because managed code runs in tandem with unmanaged code, you have to rework on design, code, and deployment of the application before migrating to VB.NET.
