What is Delphi exactly?

Delphi is also known as Embarcadero Delphi or Pascal. It is a quite old programming language, but since Delphi 1 it includes an IDE (Integrated Development Environment). A lot of companies still use old versions of Delphi applications, since it has been there for a long time. When (national as well as international) companies need to renew or upgrade their Delphi application, they come to GDK Software. How to update Delphi is particularly complicated. So, they are making the right move by contacting us. We employ many good Delphi programmers.

Why would you update your Delphi application?

There are many diverse reasons to update Delphi. Not only is the IDE much nicer to use, but various language improvements have been made as well. Moreover, applications can be used on many different devices, such as mobile phones (iOS / Android), Windows, and Mac. Additionally, it could be that older versions of Delphi are increasingly causing error messages. “Our users had to restart the old Delphi application up to five times a day, and response times also increased,” says Ailsa Hunt from the New Zealand organization Livestock Improvement Corporation (LIC). “That could no longer continue.” After the hundreds of Delphi applications were updated from Delphi 5 or 7 to the latest version, the problems disappeared like snow in the sun.
