Modernize your Applications:

Accommodate Business Efficiencies in a Distributed World

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 Or an outdated web application? Is your data-centric app using an unsupported or outdated Windows server?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!

Legacy Applications are a 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 desktop client-server apps. It creates a constant need for a clear transition path between platforms, systems, and servers. The less-than-a-decade-long transition from PC to cloud, web and mobile has led to a significant gap that must be bridged.
Once support is no longer provided for older systems and platforms, security features become outdated, leaving companies vulnerable to breaches.
Applications relying on specific outdated components or features that are no longer available may even cease to work entirely.

The Cost of Inaction

The risks of remaining “analog” in a digitized world are continuously rising. In the past three decades, the amount and scope of applications that power business, production, and management processes has grown significantly. Most of the processes in your organization are now digitized.

Organizations that choose to maintain outdated legacy applications and code face increasingly challenging conditions, limiting their ability to expand - and compete.

Consider, for example the cost of recruiting and retaining developers with the necessary - yet outdated – experience. Incompatibility with new operating systems and server infrastructures translates into extended maintenance and support fees. Finally, complicated software lifecycle management incurs additional costs. All those issues add up to an overall inefficient and expensive business and operational model.

The Cost of Rewriting Applications

Many CIOs consider rewriting custom applications to comply with newer platforms and operating systems. Yet again - a process that requires years of work and millions in budget expenses - none of which promise salvation from further security risks and the potential complications of rewritten code.

Due to the high risk, extended time frames and bloated costs of rewriting applications from scratch, IT organizations often find themselves facing roadblocks that are simply too challenging to overcome. Indeed, research shows manual rewrite projects failure rate can reach up to 65% .

Alternative solutions such as migration are ineffective in most cases. Applications written for PC platforms cannot be migrated "as-is" and must be reengineered for the cloud, for mobile, or for web compatibility.

Furthermore, it is imperative that the modernization of legacy applications, once decided upon, be done swiftly and efficiently, to allow the organization to keep pace with the breakneck speed of progress in the technology world, and to stay ahead of the competition.

Why Transpositions ?

To truly benefit from modern efficiencies, your organization must deploy enterprise applications on a modern software infrastructure. This enables IT teams to centrally manage platform upgrades, security fixes and distributed usage. Applications are deployed using server-centric architecture that can be managed and upgraded in a cost-effective manner.

But how can you do that and stay within budget? Gizmox Transposition to the rescue! We offer an innovative solution to one of the most pressing IT challenges of the “Post-PC” era.
