Automated Application Conversion
Do you need to convert your Informix 4GL application to VB.NET? In this case, Ispirer products will be the perfect solution for your project!
Human-written code in each project has its own specifics. It may seem difficult to obtain a high level of automated conversion. With Ispirer it will be a smooth transition. The main advantage of Ispirer Toolkit is the personalization for your conversion project. As a result, you will replace the old technology with all its downsides. The outcome will be a new application without any middleware used afterwards.
How it Works
Automated conversion of Informix 4GL to VB.NET with the help of our tool makes it possible to significantly reduce the time and expenses as compared to manual rewriting of the application. The following approach allows to ensure high quality of automated conversion:
The stage is carried out to determine the maximum conversion level of Ispirer Toolkit. Our experts will perform the migration of a small but representative scope (usually about 5,000 lines of code). As a result, you will be able to evaluate the quality of the VB.NET code that will be obtained after automated conversion.
2. Ispirer Toolkit Extension Stages
We implement the stages (usually 1-3) to thoroughly prepare the toolkit for the entire conversion according to your project requirements. We will migrate part of the representative code, which ranges from 20,000 to 300,000 lines (depending on the overall size of the project). The Ispirer technical team will add all the neccessary conversion rules into the tool in order to achieve the highest possible level of automation. As a delivery, we will provide conversion results of the scope of each Extension Stage. You will get customized and updated tool according to his specific project needs.
3. Use of Ispirer Toolkit
At this stage, you perform the conversion yourself. As to pricing, we apply project-based licensing. Prices depend on its scope and duration. Besides, the license includes support. If necessary, the conversion may be further improved even at this stage. For this purpose Extension Requests can be included in the license, which are processed very quickly, in 1-3 working days. Our experts recommend the optimal number of requests considering the complexity and requirements of your project.

What Our Customers Say
"Beckman Coulter provided as much of the information as we could but there was a lot of functionality that we did not know. This is where Ispirer talents became apparent as they forensically reengineered functionality."
"We are now successfully running live on the new system, with the updated PB apps. I want to express my thanks to Ispirer team. You made this project a success!!! I was happy to work with you and would highly recommend Ispirer!"
"Because of Ispirer and MnMTK, our team was able to devote its time to build the infrastructure for new Java programs instead of spending time on converting code. The produced Java code met all our maintainability, readability and performance requirements."
"This approach was very successful avoiding any confusion at the first stage, and achieved high conversion rate in the end. The project was completed successfully, they say they couldn't make it without MnMTK 2017 and excellent extension support from lspirer."
"At the onset of the engagement the Ispirer MnMTK was expanded to meet the specific requirements of our migration prior to being delivered for our use. Once this phase of the project was complete we were provided with the expanded toolkit."
"We have found the Ispirer team to be knowledgeable and responsive and we have found the tooling to be flexible enough to be easily adapted to our coding conventions."
