Delphi Application Migration
Delphi has made its move up to the 11th position of TIOBE index. There are lot of products in market which are written in very old version of delphi.
Since Delphi is back in trending one should consider migrating their legacy applications to the newest delphi version available, rather than porting them to any other language.
Why to go for Migration over porting ?
Delphi's support for backward compatibility (allowing code to open up and compile in the new versions) making migration process effortless. Even a comparatively smaller teams can achieve the same task mach faster compared to any other RAD tool, thus reducing both on time and money.
Benefits of Migration to Newest Delphi version:
-  • Migrating to 64bit
Go for migrating your product to 64-bit and be one step ahead of your compititors.
With the evolution of processors starting from 8 bit to upto 64 bit,it is been predicted that within next few years most of the windows computers will be 64-bit.
Modern Delphi enables you to take your existing 32-bit VCL applications to 64-bit code base. 64-bits means memory space than 32-bit, letting you to do more and improve on performance.
-  • Modenize your UI with firemonkey
Migrate your legacy delphi application to newer delphi version to replace old, traditional VCL UI control with the newer and graphically richer Firemonkey User Interface framework.

P.S.Cross platform won't be possible if your application uses Windows APIs(informally WinAPI).
