Success Stories: Metex converts VB to .Net - Bank of Montreal



BMO looked at three options to address their challenges. They could perform a manual rewrite of the PMD application, migrate the existing system or purchase a commercial package with similar functionality and customize it to suit their purposes. After careful consideration of all options, BMO engaged Metex

to convert PMD from VB to .Net in order to preserve and leverage their intellectual property and original capital investment in the system.


The new application has an enhanced, web-enabled user interface and is much easier to use.

The structure and quality of the code was significantly improved and transformed into native .Net code which allows the bank to easily modify and maintain the system going forward.

Installation time was reduced as users could access the UI interface download via a url rather than having a system administrator visit each user.
