Application Modernisation Revive

The Application Modernisation Revive Service is a solution offered by Cenitex to allow customers to overcome the challenges associated with legacy business applications hosted on old, often unsupported versions of Windows Server Operating Systems due to compatibility constraints.

The solution provides a pattern-based approach to assess and natively migrate the application from its legacy Windows Server OS version to a modern and in-support Windows Server OS version, whether on the VicGov Private Cloud, Public Cloud or any other hosting location.
