Macrosoft, a leading provider of professional services for Visual Basic 6 to .NET and Classic ASP to ASP.NET migration, is dedicated to assisting companies with legacy technology. Visual Basic 6 and Classic ASP were once powerful software development languages offered by Microsoft. Despite Microsoft’s discontinuation of support for VB in 2008 and APS in 2020, numerous global companies continue to rely on these languages. Leveraging our proprietary tools and techniques, Macrosoft has perfected the efficient migration of legacy programs to modern technology platforms. 

In line with our expertise, Macrosoft recently conducted the second annual State of Legacy ASP/VB6 – Support, Modernization, and Migration in the United States survey in June 2023. This survey, comprising 20 multiple-choice questions, was administered via SurveyMonkey. Invitations to participate were extended to our comprehensive client contact list, consisting of 15,000 professionals. A total of 91 individuals from over 50 identified companies actively participated, completing the entire survey. The participation rate of 100% and the diverse representation of respondents from various industries and companies contribute to the robustness and reliability of the survey results.

A few key observations of the 2023 survey:

  • The percentage of respondents who think VB6/Classic ASP possess some kind of a risk has skyrocketed.
  • There’s a significant uptick when compared to the previous year in the emphasis on cloud integration, security enhancement, scalability for user support, and improved reporting, all marked as most important priorities in 2023
  • The companies using these legacy technologies has confined the use internally, rather than presenting the software to their clients.

To ensure the confidentiality of participants, the survey results are presented in aggregated form, protecting the anonymity of individuals. Alongside the direct tabulations and graphical representation of the survey findings, we provide an in-depth analysis of the results, examining their implications and impact on the industry. Macrosoft intends to conduct this survey annually, with evolving questions to address the changing landscape.
