Your Challenge

  • Plug-ins that dominated the app tool landscape until recently are being repositioned. Major browsers and the industry are embracing HTML5, the next generation web markup language that is cross platform and cross device compatible.
  • Organizations face resistance in migrating to HTML5 because of high earlier investment into tools like Flash and Silverlight. Many are having difficulty de-coupling apps developed in the Rapid Application Development (RAD) mindset.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Organizations need to migrate their legacy applications before these applications become obsolete, result in security problems, and turn out to be too costly to maintain.
  • Organizations need to develop a strategy that addresses three critical aspects of RIA: endpoint, framework, and testing. Proper testing, in particular, is paramount: organizations need to ensure performance and scalability of their rich applications.
