NEWSLETTER APRIL 28TH, 2015

Does the ‘common wisdom’ of your entire organization reside in a written-for-desktop application? Or an outdated web application? Is your data-centric app using an unsupported or outdated Windows server? How well does your application respond to remote workers? Is it accessible to web and mobile users? How easy (or difficult) would moving it to the cloud be?

 

Our guess - you are getting no joy from your legacy business application. We feel your pain!As technology advances, new software platforms render legacy applications useless, making them a burden on your company’s business model.
As global corporations such as Microsoft continue to advance their software and products, support for older versions and platforms becomes hard to come by, or unfeasible to maintain.
This leaves many enterprises facing significant challenges as a result of their legacy apps. In fact surveys show that over 70% of all organizations are facing these challenges. It creates a constant need for a clear transition path between platforms, systems, and servers. Gizmox Transposition offers such a path. Fast, cost-efficient and of the highest quality. Gizmox digital-application-rewriter digitally reengineers your legacy application for modern platforms. We take pride with the code and application quality we deliver. They adhere to the strictest standards and best practices such as Microsoft FxCop standard. 
Recent surveys show that over 70% of all organizations around the world are facing application modernization challenges. You are receiving this communication because you most probably face this challenge as well and we would like to keep you updated on constant bases.

Why should you care about Gizmox Transposition? 

The history of information technology is a story of transitions. So far, we have witnessed the deep impact of no less than three generations of technology: first the IBM mainframe, then Microsoft PC, and now Computing Everywhere: from centralized servers and data infrastructure – to the cloud.

Each generational shift has seen organizations large and small struggle to keep up with the times. As an IT veteran, you’re surely aware of the fact that even 40 years after having been replaced, the mainframe is still alive and kicking at the heart of many enterprises. The inhibitive costs and significant risks of migrating mission critical (and even less than critical) applications to modern computing environments will give pause to even the most daring CIO. Read More.

So, how do I prove to my peers that your digital-app-rewriter can do it? A new Assessment Wizard version: 1.7, comes to your help  

Our Assessment Wizard tells you how ready your legacy application is for Transposition to modern platforms. It analyzes your legacy application by applying semantic understanding of all its dependencies and functionality. Using the statistics it generates, you do not only know the application better than the developers who wrote and maintained it for decades, but also the application’s environmental dependencies. Not a single stone is left unturned by the assessment wizard, as it discloses to you any and all of the information you need to accurately plan the project’s resources and schedules.

Now, with new simplified & intuitive user interface: 

And new data collection & analysis capabilities, that allow us to offer a POC in 72 hours

You may use this new version for a POC. A snapshot of your application code will be created by the assessment wizard for you to forward to the Gizmox experts. You also get an automatically executed NDA. Gizmox experts will use the data the assessment wizards collects to build a POC of a module of your application in the target environment with no commitment on your side and without additional info from you. You have got nothing to lose. 

For additional details see HERE

What will we prove for you in a Proof of Concept?

We will show you how your legacy desktop app or outdated web app, can be transposed to modern desktop, HTML5 web or mobile (MVC architecture) applications with or without cloud backend, at 1/10 of the time & cost.

NEWSLETTER DECEMBER 10TH, 2014


Fact: hundreds of millions of lines of code in legacy applications written in classic ASP, VB6, VB.Net, PowerBuilder and other legacy languages, put into service during times when social networks and touch smartphones were the stuff of futuristic dreams, lurk in organizations across the land. These legacy applications contaminate organizations, – including yours probably – with corroded functionality, eroded productivity and doomed maintenance efforts.
Traditionally, transforming and modernizing legacy apps required a difficult choice between a limited number of options. Your organization could:

 

  • Start a manual rewrite project using internal or external resources, or Start a manual rewrite project using internal or external resources, or
  • Use one of a few automated migration products

2014 saw the emergence of a new approach that digitally rewrites legacy desktop to new operating systems such as Win 7, 8 and 10, and new Web, Mobile and Cloud platforms, called Transposition, which is the first digital-app-rewrite method.
