The Wellington City Council is looking for suppliers to transform its PowerBuilder applications to web-based Java applications.
PowerBuilder is a computer application development system that was first released in 1991.
According to request for proposal documents released on Friday, the council has a number of applications developed in PowerBuilder. However, the programming language is now out of date with systems taking too long to change. PowerBuilder is also difficult to integrate with off-the-shelf IT products and the council is having trouble finding qualified PowerBuilder developers.
The deadline for replies is Monday, October 20. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 23506.
