Legacy Software Maintenance
The mark of a good software business is a large installed base of customers that regularly use the products. These customers are getting value for the money they spent and are paying maintenance for its upkeep and growth. Unfortunately for the software company, sometimes the very thing that led to their success can, over time, become the anchor that keeps them from doing anything dramatically new or different. This is because their legacy software product that is still generating large amounts of maintenance dollars is also the software that is the oldest and most difficult to extend into new technologies.
We understand this dilemma and the need for the software business to start fresh with an entirely new architecture that can employ the latest technologies to attract a whole new group of customers. OFS has developed “Preservation”, an effective program to take over the maintenance and support for your legacy products to free your top talent to build the next-generation software product that will take your firm to the next level.
Within six weeks, OFS will assemble a team of appropriately skilled resources for your software, come to your location to complete a rapid knowledge transition, including training and design document generation, and then assume full responsibility for the maintenance and enhancement of your legacy product.
