PDC provides the products, services, and expertise to help clients meet the challenges of their software migration needs. We are either developing machine independent code or we are doing work revolving around the problems of moving code from one environment to another - with minimum effort, cost and time. Our purpose is to provide our clients with technical services and software tools aimed at the following ends:
Conversion of existing client applications to (a portable subset of) the C language
Conversion of Visual Basic applications to .NET via translation to C# or to VB.NET
Production of tailored translation tools for nonstandard languages of special portation needs. PDC is a small company. As such, we believe that our work must be of the highest quality and consistent with time and budget goals. To achieve our goals, we subscribe to the following principles:
Simple, integrated project management procedures
Experienced staff with specific technical skills and dedication to quality
Small business efficiency and responsibility
Performance on the job and the timely delivery of promised results explains our long and respected track record,
Legacy System Migrations
A legacy system is an information system that you've built, shaped and used over the years in support of your business or your work. It is a valuable asset in which you or your company may have invested heavily. Unfortunately, it may reside on an "older", perhaps limited, hardware/software platform and it may depend heavily on the particular infrastructure of that platform.
Because you want to preserve its intrinsic value, you may want to re-host such a legacy system to a "newer" platform (rather than re-write it manually for that platform) - especially if the re-hosting can be done in a cost-efficient and timely manner.
With our translation tools and migration services, legacy system re-hosting is an attractive option relative to other migration options.
For FORTRAN-based applications, we have proved the power of our methodology many times over, in several hundred migration projects worldwide. We are now starting to apply the same methodology to the migration and upgrade of Visual Basic legacy systems.
