Banamex - Citigroup Turns to ArtinSoft to Ensure Compliance and Business Continuity Through Massive Migration to C#.NET
Banamex is a leading bank in Mexico and one of the strongest and most influential institutions in Latin America. Following the acquisition by Citigroup, Banamex was required to comply with several corporate QA policies, which forced the modernization of 124 applications (5M LOC) developed in VB6.0 and ASP. Moreover, Banamex needed a platform that would allow them to react to market changes and demands by quickly developing new system functionality. Besides the imminent VB6 cease of support from Microsoft, all business logic should remain intact in the migrated applications. Using a customized version of ArtinSoft's Visual Basic Upgrade Companion, almost five million lines of code were migrated to .NET, reaching 100% functional equivalence at the end of the project.
