SoftSol recognizes that every client’s migration project is different and has unique requirements. To account for these migrations, the automated tool is highly configurable and customizable, which ensures that SoftSol can provide a highly customized migration for our clients.
Central to our solution is SoftSol’s proprietary PowerBuilder migration tool which can perform migration of PowerBuilder applications to Java or .Net. It serves three important roles in the migration process:
Following PowerBuilder language constructs are efficiently translated:
The applications developed using UDS/Forte platform have three tiers – client, business logic, and data. The new architecture should follow the same configuration. With SoftSol’s automated tools and modernization methodology the Forte application can be modernized to an application with 3 distinct tiersusing latest technology with minimal risk.
Following Forte language constructs are efficiently supported:
