Cost Aspects

Migrating an application, either manually or with an automated tool, involves considerable effort and risks. The time-cost-quality triangle is just as real as in any other project.

The amounts of time and financial resources spent on the migration depend on the application itself and on the skills of the team that translates it. Using a software migrator dramatically reduces costs, while the employment of such a migrator by a third-party specialized in migration services can reduce them even further. All this without sacrificing the quality of the output, even increasing it.

The following diagram sketches the evolution of costs (money, time, human resources, risks) for migrating an increasing codebase.

For all but the very small applications, migration services are the preferred alternative in terms of costs and quality.
