Organizations purchasing software expect rich feature sets, deployment flexibility and all of the performance and maintenance advantages of modern technology.

If your products are meeting the functional needs of your customers but are built on brittle legacy technology, you confront a competitive disadvantage in the face of increasingly fierce competition whose products may be built on more flexible modern technology.

TLM® ISV Solution allows software vendors to meet and surpass customer business needs by moving products to modern agile platforms; avoiding the risks associated with other approaches and delivering top quality, tailored solutions to the customer.

The advantages of a re-architected application enable you to offer your customers:

  • Cloud Enabled: evolve the way your product is delivered to your customers by creating a cloud-ready software package
  • Rich User Experience: provide easy to use interfaces, including mobile device support, which will decrease training, improve productivity and increase adoption
  • Extensible: enable your software to be flexible enough that customers can extend it directly without the need for extensive customization
  • Global Capabilities: Increase your market coverage by adding full internationalization and improved extensibility for other regional differences

This software suite covers the three key activities in a product upgrade lifecycle:

Application Re-architecture

Application Re-architecture starts with an in-depth analysis of every aspect of the product: functionality, source code and data structures, in order to create a complete view of the legacy product. A planning exercise defines exactly which new technology components the new version will be built on, and to prioritizes the enhancements to be applied. A blueprint of the modernized version of the product is created, based on all of the gathered data. Finally, implementation leverages all of these created assets and uses code generation and collaboration tools to increase the productivity and consistency of the development process.

New Module Development

Make Technologies’ software helps define new features and modules of a product. Use the TLM® Designer and Code Generator to get that same productivity and consistency found during the Application Re-architecture.

Customer Roll-out

One of the key issues for a major new version of any product is customer adoption. The easier the upgrade, the lower the barrier for transitioning an existing customer base to your modernized version. Make Technologies provides you with the tools needed to upgrade customers in a predictable manner, with a large degree of automation and insight. Use the TLM® Analyzer to identify not just custom modifications to source code, but also the business impact of those changes. TLM® Data Workbench uses the transformation rules created during the modernization to automatically migrate your customer’s data over to the modern version.
