Update your aging software to your evolving needs
KDAB has 20 years of experience in modernizing legacy software. We use this along with current best practices, modern development paradigms, and our proprietary automation tools to efficiently migrate your legacy software to new frameworks, languages, and GUIs. This allows you to adapt your code base to evolving user needs without the fear of introducing bugs, breaking compatibility, or being trapped into using obsolete tools and environments.
Porting a legacy GUI toolkit to a modern framework is a complex and demanding job with many hidden intricacies. KDAB has significant experience in porting software that uses toolkits like Motif, MFC, Photon, X11, and previous versions of Qt. We draw upon our in-depth knowledge from numerous migration projects in many different industries to quickly develop solid ports that can run on mobile, desktop, and embedded devices.
Older applications often only support a single platform – many times one that is archaic or being deprecated. Modernizing your application allows it to run on multiple platforms and devices. We reuse as much existing code as possible, while ensuring the application’s connection to its environment is portable and cross-platform.
Using older GUI frameworks causes code problems – but it can also leave the user interface looking stale and dated. While moving over your GUI framework, we help redesign your UI with a highly professional look, using modern user interface elements and a cleaner, more intuitive style. And in cases where your software needs to be white labeled by the customer or personalized by the end-user, we make the UI flexible and reskinnable.
