An IT services provider company has migrated an ERP application totaling 950,000 lines of VB6 code to .NET in 9 months.
Microsoft recently published a case study highlighting the success of the migration of 950,000 lines of VB6 code to .NET. The process was conducted by SiS, an Austrian IT company, using VB Migration Partner from Code Architects over a period of 9 months. The project was an ERP system built over 10 years and consisting of 33 applications. The best solution for this application was to migrate it rather than use a customized ERP application or rewrite it. Customizing a commercial ERP was not accepted because it would have cost 3-5 million Euros, it would take 2 years and no vendor guaranteed the implementation of all original features.
