In an interview with fecher, CEO Michael Riesner and Software Developer Simon Voggeneder from Lang Finanzsoftware GmbH report how they were able to take their application from Gupta Team Developer to .NET in a cooperative “in-house” porting project and thus prepare it for the decades to come.
In the 1990s, Microsoft Access was commonly used to create database-based applications. But today, for enterprises as well as for software vendors, Access is no longer considered the best choice for this purpose. Using a proven tool-based process, fecher creates a functionally identical application that is based on the future-proof .NET framework with C# application logic, and which is flexibly usable on all devices as it is a true browser-based app.
Amtech is the leading worldwide provider of software and hardware solutions for the corrugated manufacturing industry serving more than 600 manufacturing plants worldwide. The Imaginera software suite has been developed and deployed as an on-premise client/server solution originally built with Gupta Team Developer 4GL.

Maginus has been at the forefront of e-commerce since the late 1990s and the highly diverse client list spans a range of industries and business models. Its Order Management System is internally used throughout the organization by warehouse operators, purchasing department staff, the contact center and finance departments. The modernization project conducted by fecher had to first effectively handle some unexpected challenges before the complex business software could finally be successfully migrated from Visual Basic 6 (VB6) to C# and the .NET framework.
fecher has successfully applied its tool-based migration process to Harris Local Government’s ERP solution, which consists of 16 applications. The software, originally written in Visual Basic 6, is used by municipalities, counties and water and sewer districts throughout the United States.
Personnel consultancy firms and in-house recruiting departments that are professionally involved with recruiting are already familiar with hunter. The comprehensive recruiting solution has been among the market leaders in Europe for more than two decades. Originally developed to run only on Windows, several variants were later created for mobile and cloud use as well as client-connectivity via web. The software now has cross-platform usability as a browser-app thanks to fecher's web-enabling project. In just one project, the hunter UI has not only been modernized, it is now also usable on Mac and Linux in addition to Windows and separately developed mobile and web variants are no longer needed. The complex business logic’s core did not need to be adapted.

With roughly 100 employees, Data I/O is one of those hidden champions: When it comes to programming integrated circuits (ICs), everybody knows the company as the #1 global player since its inception in 1972.
