(2) Software migration

Nowadays, new hardware and software technologies pop-up by leaps and bounds urging vendors to port legacy solutions to new hardware and platforms (OS, compiler) in order to satisfy clients in terms of productivity, cost and quality. Migration process impacts millions of code lines in large-scale products.

MERA enjoys wide expertise in various generations of technologies which allows us to make up efficient software migration plans for all the product development stages including implementation, verification and support.

We have practical experience in the following software migration areas:

  • OS migration (UNIX to Linux, Solaris to Linux)
  • CPU architecture migration (Sparc to x86)
  • Database migration (Sybase to PostgreSql, MSSQL to Oracle)
  • 3rd party migration (commercial to open-source)
  • Java application server migration (JBoss AS5 to JBoss AS7)

The software migration projects are done in five steps:

Migration projects for large-scale products comprise millions of code lines and require comprehensive approach to adapt a product to a new platform. The process requires deep understanding of both the preceding and the acceding platforms including hardware, OS, compilers, 3rd party products and databases. Our engineers possess deep practical knowledge and strong skills in large-scale cross-platform porting projects. MERA customers rely on our wide hand-on experience and involve us at all the stages of their software migration projects
