Forte Migration

Why Migrate?

Sun Microsystems started phasing out Forte/UDS in September 2006 and has announced the complete end-of-support by April 2009. For companies seeking to minimize risk, this created a strong impetus either to retire or migrate critical application written in Forte/UDS.

The following are several reasons industry leaders have decided on Forte migration to either .Net or Java/J2EE:

  •  Phase-out of the Forte/UDS platform
  •  Increased licensing and support cost
  •  Lack of new features
  •  Limited support for new technologies
  •  Incompatibility with newer versions of OS or DBMS
  •  Inability to market products written in outdated platform
  •  Difficulty to staff project due to lack of resources
  •  Ability to converge to a enterprise standard platform
  •  Wide variety of choice for products in Java and .NET
  •  Ability to leverage open source software
