Intelligent, Custom and Highly Automated Cross Platform Database and Application Migration

PowerBuilder to Java Migration, United States

Customer

Ispirer was engaged by an ISV company that develops and provides advanced maintenance software solutions and services in the airline software market. The company, founded in 1997, has its main and additional offices in the United States, and serves airlines worldwide.

Challenge

Ispirer was summoned to address issues relating to migration of a massive application of the PowerBuilder code into Java.

Solution

The comprehensive application conversion engagement model that Ispirer deploys in such complex long-term projects consists of several phases. The first one involves assessment, estimation, and proof-of-concept (POC).

At the POC stage, Ispirer technicians had to demonstrate how a part of the client’s application could be converted into Java using the tool SQLWays. A month-long close cooperation between the Ispirer team and the client’s team resulted into the introduction of all specific requirements and rules into the tool, which enabled the client to get the entire benefits of SQLWays. In particular, a new framework JSF was developed. Constant interaction with the client was ensured through WebEx and Lync sessions.

Results & Advantages

During the POC stage, our technical specialists demonstrated how SQLWays was a very flexible migration tool that can be customized according to the needs of the client in the shortest time. The results of POC were impressive – by the end of this initial stage, the client got a readable code, as if the conversion was made manually. Moreover, the client was convinced that any further customizations could be introduced effectively. Another reason behind the success of this engagement was the possibility of automating the migration process in order to minimize manual interventions.

The company was satisfied with its experience with Ispirer during the pilot phase and with the conversion results as well. As the POC stage has been successfully completed, we will now be proceeding with our cooperation and modification of the client’s application with the help of SQLWays, as part of a long-term migration project.

Feedback

We have been researching a number of products that will improve the way that we are exporting data from Progress into SQL server. I have been testing your product as part of a test run for a new job that we have won. My initial thoughts are very positive because it is saving us time plus we can set the export running without having to worry about the export.
