OCS has a wealth of in-depth knowledge when it comes to migration and upgrading PowerBuilder solutions. Every project we are involved in is also systematically tested.

Migration Experience

Before such projects are undertaken, we offer our best advice so you have end-to-end support from licensing options to final deployment.

Detailed Migration Report

We're familiar with all the past versions of this powerful software and have vast experience in dealing with discontinued features and issues associated with later operating systems. OCS has migrated PowerBuilder 5.5 to the latest 2022 version. We always offer an initial consultancy report that supplies the migration in detail and every step needed for success.

User Acceptance Testing

Once the migration takes place, we will undertake comprehensive testing. This will ensure the application is ready for User Acceptance Testing. This testing takes into account elements such as OCX controls, other 3rd party controls, built-in web browser controls and legacy API calls (depending in integrations used within the applications).

Items we take into account when undertaking PowerBuilder migrations and upgrades:

  • OCX controls
  • 3rd party integrations
  • Window API calls
  • PDF printing
  • Batch processes
  • Multithreaded processing
  • Integration of source controls
  • Single sign-on
  • Information reporting
  • Rich text controls

Legacy Databases

OCS can also assist with back-end database migration as this can go hand-in-hand with the migration of your PowerBuilder application.
