Many of today’s enterprises that still utilize legacy applications are often faced with no upgrade path for these legacy applications due to prohibitive redevelopment costs or vendor decommissioning of support. With these same enterprises migrating to Windows 10, managing the end of life for business-critical legacy enterprise applications is a challenge for them.
Our “Legacy by APPtechnology” offering can address this challenge by providing the following functionality to the enterprise:
Our Legacy offering is designed to provide enterprises a turnkey solution for legacy application migrations that includes discovery, assessment, architecture, provisioning and pre/post implementation professional services and/or support. It also can be hosted and provided as a service on premise, off-premise, in the cloud or as a hybrid solution.
“Enterprises can face both desktop and client/server application migration issues and often end up using ring-fenced unsupported OS systems to retain access to data or functionality,”* stated Mark Churly, Head of Software Solutions at APPtechnology. “What we have done here at APPtechnology is combine both the flexibility and competitive licensing model of Glassware 2.0 with our specialist professional services to provide a simple yet robust solution for enterprises looking to focus more time on operations rather than triage the migration path of legacy applications.”
“We have been working with APPtechnology for quite some time and can say unequivocally that their team has done a tremendous job with this offering,” said Joseph O’Daniel, President of Virtualization and Professional Services at Sphere 3D. “By packaging their significant expertise in application migrations and management with our Glassware 2.0 technology, they have created a seamless path for enterprises looking to extend the life of their applications”*.
