So what does it cost???
gmStudio enables an agile Tool-Assisted Rewrite Methodology that helps serious migration teams incrementally verify, improve, and customize an automated upgrade process to meet their unique technical requirements.
Prospective customers always ask us two things: What is this going to cost? And, How long is this going to take? Both are important questions to ask and difficult questions to answer. Most teams start with two simplistic, but critical requirements:
Reproducing functionality is primary and it is fairly objective. The idea is this: the existing VB6/ASP source code is a complete, formal specification of the legacy functionality, so IF one can rewrite it precisely and accurately, the resulting .NET code will produce the functionality "exactly". We know it's a big IF, but one thing we also know is that the precision, accuracy, and scalability of rewriting code with gmStudio and our tool-assisted rewrite methodology can meet this requirement much more efficiently than doing it manually.
Upgrading technology is also extremely important, but is much more subjective. One cannot know how far they will travel until they know where they are starting from and decide where they are going. gmStudio can help you understand and plan upgrade work, but teams must still understand what the new platform has to offer and agree on how to take advantage of it. Teams will want to try, test, refine, and apply technical design changes on a large scale and doing this with gmStudio is much more efficient than doing it manually.
Using gmStudio can dramatically change how you allocate your upgrade project budget:
