Microsoft created an incredible opportunity for software developers. Windows ISVs responded with an incredible 35 million applications. These companies still have large installed bases and millions of lines of still-working business logic. But modern cloud-based software providers now have many advantages.

Group 33


The cloud is now the preferred deployment model for most companies. Also, these applications offer modern user experiences on popular devices like mobile phones and tablets. In addition, their business models offer increased revenue and reduced support costs. Consequently, these companies get vastly higher valuations from investors and acquirers.

Transitioning from Windows to cloud-native SaaS is complex.  You will need to address five areas for transformation.  


Data Access

If the app was built for a legacy database like DataFlex or Btrieve / Pervasive.SQL, you will need to rewrite all your data access code for one of the SQL databases.


Business Logic

Rewriting millions of lines of working business logic using a modern language for the Cloud can take years - even if you have the right team!


Modern User Interfaces

Modern user interfaces require a complete redesign and reimplementation to support browsers, phones, tablets, wearables, etc.



Adding sufficient internet/cloud security is the most complex step, but also the most essential.


Cloud Deployment  

Deploying in the cloud requires more new expertise and more modern tools that traditional ISVs just don’t have in-house.
