Three Buzzwords That Every CIO Hears but One They Should Listen To

Managers take note. Transpositioning is the way forward.

Anyone that's managing an enterprise IT with aging or outdated client/server systems is starting to feel the heat. Soon, their systems and applications will be obsolete and unsupported. At the same time, the industry as whole is seeking the fastest gateway to the latest .NET, HTML5 and mobile deployments including SaaS models. Right about now, there will be a knock on your door with team members offering their advice as to what you should do to ‘keep up' with the latest trends and supported architectures. Here are three of the buzzwords they will have probably used, and what they actually mean.

Rewrite: While the end result will be a bespoke and modern application, it's a lengthy, costly and risky path using one of the new unproven web frameworks.

Technical migration: Sounds great, sure, but where are those automatic tools that will take your legacy client/server apps to the latest and greatest?

Apps Virtualization: Available but expensive. If you have no more than a few dozen users, the economics might not leave you out of pocket. And, if you are OK with using VPN and maintaining outdated, sometimes unsupported code, this might be your solution.

But the express route from client/server to a rich web app is this:

Transposition: A solution that literally transposes your code (moves it from one environment to another) to run as the latest .NET (C#, or VB.NET) in the form of desktop, web, cloud or mobile .NET / HTML or HTML5, at web economics (a few cents per user). This solution allows you to rewrite selected code using your legacy as a starting point so you can reuse valuable business logic. It enables you to achieve your goals at a fraction of the cost of both rewriting and application virtualization.

Gizmox's Instant CloudMove enables you to improve your legacy code (whether it's 'spaghetti', outdated functionality, antique-looking UIs, or the need for new layers or to make it object oriented) and is the shortest time to market.
