How Legacy by APPtechnology Works

With enterprises migrating to Windows 10, managing the end of life for business critical legacy enterprise applications is a challenge. Enterprises can face both desktop and client/server application migration issue. Typically, being faced with costly re-development for bespoke applications or expensive upgrades with little or no feature gains for 3rd party software. In many cases there may be no upgrade or redevelopment path possible where applications that are tied to specific hardware, for example manufacturing/diagnostics software.

In summary these are the most common scenarios enterprises will face when working with legacy applications:

  • No upgrade path exists for the application
  • Redevelopment costs are prohibitive
  • Application is due to be decommissioned

It is common for enterprises to end up using of ring-fenced unsupported OS systems to retain access to data or functionality. Even with only a small percentage of machines left running an end of life OS in the estates both security risks and a support overhead.
