Non-stop platform change
The Metzler bank developed the Merian application suite nearly 15 years ago and has been improving it ever since. Merian now consists of about 70 applications and modules for managing securities, funds and bonds. Not only did more than 500,000 lines of code have to be migrated from Gupta Team Developer to C#.NET without disrupting normal application operation, but it had to have minimum effect upon ongoing development. The team from Metzler IT-Services GmbH accepted this challenge with the help of the tools from the Ice Tea Group, which specializes in such cases.
