Do you ever feel that your Visual FoxPro application is a Shovel and what you really need is a Plow?
You are not alone! Your Visual FoxPro application may have been working effectively for 10 or 20 years, but it is time for “Out with the Old… and in with the New.”
As Microsoft announced the end of life for Visual FoxPro, it is highly recommended to move from this phased out technology to a stable platform that has vendor support. Although Visual FoxPro has been a dynamic application development environment suited for 32-bit database applications and components, therefore, performance wise VFP does not scale well to user demands. VFP applications experience slowness in multi-user platforms with an increase in database sizes. Future businesses demand applications that are portable and interoperable. Also, the scarcity of resources skilled in VFP should be taken into account for your future needs.
Are you looking for a technology partner for your migration needs? Macrosoft helps you to modernize your aging or phased out technology-based applications by converting them to the latest and most suited platform. Converting VFP applications requires considerable effort and expertise. You need an experienced migration team, having knowledge in both the environments, to smoothly and successfully make the transition. Macrosoft has proven track record of successfully migrating business-critical applications with an excellent cadre of software engineers well versed in both legacy technologies as well as latest ones.
At Macrosoft, we are contacted every week by companies that need migration from older Visual FoxPro legacy applications to the new .NET environment. Why do they contact us, it is typically due to the following reasons:
If you fall out in one of these categories or potentially on all four of them, then contact Macrosoft and we will help you modernize your older applications and move you to the 21st century.
