ASP.Net WebForms Modernization

Bring your web applications forward

ASP.Net was a game changer, now it’s time to let it go.

ASP.Net WebForms was released in 2002 and made web development accessible to many developers who were used to visual environments to write desktop applications.

ASP.Net allowed the creation of data-driven applications with a programming model that blurred the line between client and server-side, enabling very fast development and leading to the creation of hundreds of web applications in all kinds of organizations.

After WebForms, multiple frameworks were released by Microsoft (MVC, WebPages, Web API), all of them with different goals and strengths, but note of them allowed an easy path forward for existing WebForms applications.

Even though WebForms is still supported in .NET Framework, and being considered an official Windows system component it will still be supported as long as Windows 10 is supported (at least 2025 at the time of writing), Microsoft doesn’t have plans to support WebForms in .NET 5.

Another issue with existing WebForms applications is the complexity of using newer technologies and finding experienced developers to maintain and improve them.

This brings us to the question of what to do to modernize these applications.

Modernizing Options

Nowadays there are dozens of alternatives to develop web applications, from .NET, Node, Java, PHP and many more on the server-side and multiple JavaScript platforms such as React, Angular, Vue or just plain JavaScript on the client-side.

The most important thing to realize is that none of these technologies provide an equivalent programming model to ASP.Net WebForms and the applications will require a significant re-architecting to be ported to the new platform.

This, however, gives you a lot of flexibility when planning what to do when modernizing. We can help you identify the components that can be re-utilized from the existing application and re-design the application in a way that enables your long-term strategy, whatever it might be:

  • Mobile-first design
  • Expose APIs for integration with other systems
  • Move to a cloud-first architecture
  • Enable hybrid experiences with native mobile and desktop applications

Let’s create a plan to design a solution and modernize your existing applications.

Whether you want to migrate ASP.Net WebForms to React with a .NET Core server-side or convert it to Angular and NodeJS, we can help you define the best strategy and get there faster and cheaper.

Understand the problem

With our Modernization Roadmap we work with your team to understand the existing application and all the business needs that you want to solve with the modernization.

Create a solution

We define a well-defined set of phases focusing on delivering value as quickly as possible and preventing any disruptions to your business or your team development process.

Evolution

We modernize your applications and develop all the additional features your team has always wanted but couldn’t because they were trapped in a legacy plattform.


It’s hard to stay on top of all the technology changes and making a decision on which path to take gets harder every day. You can tell these guys know what they’re doing and they helped our team make those decisions and delivered more than we expected”.
