“Legacy” is not a dirty word, it means “Successful”
Legacy software runs companies, and cannot simply be waved away with a magic wand. Whatever the legacy software does must be preserved. Legacy systems are successful and therefore mature, and likely have been in existence for a long period of time. A consequence is that legacy software is built using technologies available at the time it was constructed, as opposed to the most modern software technologies. Older technologies are more difficult to maintain, and this is a key point of pain for many legacy system owners.
Delphi technology is 22 years old, and some of its old versions are entitled to be called “Legacy”. Delphi started early in the 1995, based on Pascal language, and most of the development based on Borland Delphi version 4 to 7, although written in the late 1990’s are still amazingly works as it was 22 years ago.
It’s about time to move forward, back to the future, where Delphi was the holy grail of Software Development. Once again, it’s time to move on & upgrade those legacy Delphi based systems to support Multi Platformed Operating Systems, Clouds Mobile & IoT technology with the new release of RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo. In past few years, it became very urgent to migrate the old code, since the BDE is no longer supported & Microsoft declared a war on its own users, that still use Windows XP (and are reluctant to upgrade to Windows 7 or 10).
Moreover, nowadays, since everyone wants to upgrade to 64 bits Operating Systems like Windows 7 or 10, old Delphi users faces migration for the first time, whereas the rest of the world have been battling to survive for more than a decade, with every version of MS Visual Studio .Net or Java. Furthermore, while some businesses wishes to cross over to Linux or OSX while migrating out of Delphi to C# .NET or Java (which most likely to fail), Embarcadero provides its own multi-platform compilers to OSX, iOS, Andriod & with the latest Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo opens a new window to Linux.
You Have Nothing To Fear.
Legacy Modernization process is considered to be a long journey and might even scare you. To deal with that we have invented the Delphi Parser Automatic Refactoring Tools. The Delphi Parser gives you super powers & provides you with a Magic Wand that may help you to overcome & defeat the “All Mighty BDE” that has become over the years the Dreadful Monsters of the Prehistoric Underworld, along with plenty of other monsters that you may encounter. We will help you & guide you out of there. We can walk you through & beyond the dark mountains of Microsoft, where the ancient Windows technology resides, until you reach a safe haven.
Lucky For You, the Delphi Parser Provides a Quick & Easy Automatic Migration Solution for upgrading legacy Delphi code to the latest Embarcadero’s RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo, that can run on Windows 7 & 10, and opens a world of possibilities for your organization, in which will provide you all the security required to survive the upcoming Cyber Attacks.
