Our .NET Migration Services

.NET Framework to .NET Core Migration

The .NET framework functionality is no longer suitable for competitive software solutions. New versions of .NET Core and .NET have cross-platform capabilities, improved performance, and “n”-many additional features, which explains why the transition to a modern stack is inevitable.

To successfully migrate from the .NET framework to .NET Core, it is necessary to assess compatibility, review APIs, update libraries, create test coverage, utilize migration tools, plan the migration process, and thoroughly test the migrated system.

ASP.NET Migration

Applications designed with obsolete versions of ASP.NET today lack a row of important features and characteristics, which may prevent them from meeting modern technological standards. They are expensive to support but at the same time, they can’t ensure the scalability and flexibility that your business needs today. If you choose us as your partner who will assist you in your ASP to ASP.NET Core migration project, we will help you not only to modernize your solution but also prepare your infrastructure for its seamless deployment.

Software audit

You do not need to immediately order the implementation of the whole project. You can simply request consulting without development services and in this case, you will pay only for business analysis.

Migration from desktop to web

We will analyze the existing desktop application to determine its functionality and capabilities. Based on this, we develop a desktop-to-web migration plan and implement it.

Modernization of a legacy .NET application

We can upgrade legacy solutions, frameworks, libraries, or third-party tools to a newer version so that you will have modern scalable software that will meet all your requirements.

Architecture improvement

We can optimize existing solutions by rebuilding their architecture or breaking the application into microservices. As a result, you will get a powerful solution that will be able to cope with the current loads.

Cloud migration

We can help define the right cloud migration strategy, operating model, roadmap, and migration process for legacy systems and ecosystem partners, and modernize your existing system to make it secure, cost-effective, and flexible.

System Re-engineering

We can reorganize software or a database, optimize the architecture, and add new features to an existing system. With our customer-focused approach, you can be sure that we will find the best solution tailored to your needs.

When To Migrate your Legacy
.NET App?

Your decision on when to migrate a legacy .NET application should depend on various parameters, including your ongoing business needs, your existing business processes, the current state of the application, your digital transformation strategy, and others. Here are a couple of factors that can clearly indicate that you need to think about the migration of your NET applications.

When To Migrate your Legacy<br />.NET App?
  • The end of Microsoft support for the version of the .NET framework you are using;
  • Performance and scalability issues due to growing requirements;
  • Incompatibility of outdated components or third-party libraries with newer versions;
  • Lack of ability to customize your apps or implement new technologies required for business development;
  • Increased costs associated with running a legacy application and others.

Benefits of Migrating to Up to Date .NET Version

Performance and scalability
Performance and scalability Performance and scalability
One of the benefits of migration is the fact that this process ensures code optimization. Applications deployed with the latest versions of .NET have tremendous scalability, allowing you to boost the growth of your organization.
Cross-platform Cross-platform
The new .NET libraries allow you to smoothly create robust cross-platform applications with advanced features. In this way, .NET helps you save time, money, and energy. You will need only to write front-end code.
Security Enhancements
Security Enhancements Security Enhancements
Each new version of the NET framework typically includes security updates and features designed to address emerging threats and vulnerabilities. Migrating to a newer version ensures that your application remains protected against known security risks.
Access to New Features and APIs
Access to New Features and APIs Access to New Features and APIs
Modern versions of the .NET framework introduce a range of new features, open-source and private libraries, and APIs that can enhance the functionality and capabilities of your existing software. By migrating, you gain access to these key features, allowing you to leverage the latest technologies and development practices.
Developer Productivity
