Companies whether big or small always have their doubts when it comes to migrating from their existing system, the saying goes “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but the bigger issue is the competition, the expectations of the end-user, the user experience really don’t care the saying when using your services and products. Even if companies are going to match their competition in terms of functionalities and features, just by upgrading their ASP web application. There are a couple of caveats there, the performance won’t be the same as ASP.NET, the cross-platform support won’t be won’t be the same as ASP.NET, and more.
Migrating your ASP web applications to ASP.NET is like going from black and white television directly to a 4K LED one. ASP is a script programming language, whereas ASP.NET is a whole new way of doing web development. .NET applications designed with ASP are still functional, but moving to ASP.NET has numerous advantages.
Listed below are a few, but not limited to:
Let see some of the advantages of migrating to ASP.NET in considerable detail.
The first everyone from the business to the end-users will be noticing is the increased performance. Other than the performance, the codes are better optimized for future updates and future upgrades. This translates as new features not affecting the performance of the product or solution. All of this happens even without having to change the code. ASP.NET compiler is multiple times faster than the ASP compiler, so the groundwork for the faster performance is built into the framework itself.
ASP.NET core is a multi-platform compatible framework, a modern framework has to support multiple platforms. This while eliminates different coding activities, brings consistency to the products and services across multiple platforms. For example, a web application can be coded in C#, this same code can be used in Xamari, a hybrid mobile application platform. This means that a business successfully integrated its products and services into a smartphone platform as well.
Do More with Less
ASP.NET Core is a framework where more functions and functionalities can be performed by coding lesser than its predecessor. This translates to reduced development times, deployment, and testing times. This also lessens the cost of upgrading as well, new features can be added easily as well.
Ease of Maintenance
With fewer codes, maintenance becomes easy, while the fewer codes might look complex for a newer developer. An experienced developer can shorten the code even more for example by reducing statements. So with the ASP.NET Core framework, it is easy to build, test, maintain, and upgrade web-based applications.
In conclusion, migrating applications from ASP to ASP.NET and adapting them to fit your evolving business needs, requires extensive redesign and development. However, it has the potential to improve usability, performance and functionality.
