Great Migrations

Smart Start Package


Given a working VB6 or ASP Classic application, the Smart Start Package is a short engagement with us that provides a .NET upgrade solution for the application – regardless of its size or complexity.

The deliverables will provide code, tools, and information that will help you get started with your migration effort.

After the Smart Start, you may choose to finish the .NET upgrade by manual development or by using gmStudio and the agile Tool-Assisted Rewrite Methodology it supports.

What's in the Upgrade Assessment Workbook?

System Structure Source code structure, GUI complexity, and methods metrics.
Language Issues Specific coding patterns in your code that might require special attention during the upgrade
API Dependencies An inventory of the entry-point API (aka Win32) calls
COM DependenciesA detailed inventory of how your application uses COM components and controls
Estimating SheetsLists that summarize the major upgrade tasks and strategies to help plan the upgrade effortStandard Deliverables

The Smart Start deliverables include the following:

  • The Upgraded Code Baseline rewritten in your choice of .NET language (C# or VB.NET)
  • A detailed Upgrade Assessment Workbook
  • The gmStudio Upgrade Solution customized for your code. This solution will contain:
    1. The custom translation scripts used to produce the Upgraded Code Baseline
    2. A gmStudio License with which to reproduce and verify the Upgraded Code Baseline at your site.

  • A live presentation of the deliverables and key findings.



In order for us to begin a Smart Start, we need a copy of your working VB6/ASP codebase:

  • All ASP/VB6 source code comprising your application. Please try to include only the source code files that you to include in the assessment.
  • All COM files explicitly referenced in VBPs and ASPO pages as well as those containing classes instantiated by CreateObject/ GetObject, if applicable. 

    Your code will remain confidential and will be protected by a Non-Disclosure agreement, if desired.
