Companies from various industry domains came to migrate their code built with Qt 3, Qt 4, MFC, Adobe Flash, Motif, HTML5, and many others to Qt 5. We’ve witnessed how the transformation to comprehensive, open architecture software framework can provide a fresh momentum to create opportunities for business growth that wouldn’t otherwise exist.

Benefits of migrating to Qt

There comes a point where further investment in unsupported or suboptimal technology isn’t sustainable anymore. So often legacy applications and UIs are not meeting demands for high performance, portability, and adaptability. Most noteworthy, the high cost of ownership that provided at least somewhat of a return on investment is not anymore aligned with steep growth demands. As a result, the market differentiation that comes with flawless user interfaces can’t be regarded as secondary.

At the same time, we have seen that technology migration projects are sometimes viewed as a major undertaking fraught with risk and uncertainty. Despite the perceived ambiguity towards change, more often than not there could be significantly bigger risks with side-stepping migration. Many businesses are realizing this and those with a clear commitment to change are reaping the rewards.

In brief, there are various benefits of migrating to Qt:

  • Less technical risks
  • Performance boost
  • High flexibility and adaptability
  • Improved maintainability
  • Future proof strategy
