Cloud Migration for ISVs

Cloud-based technology has completely revolutionised the software industry and  the way ISVs do business. The Microsoft Azure cloud allows ISVs to achieve more and gain competitive advantage in a growing and developing industry.

The term ISV was coined by the technology industry to describe Independent Software Vendors who develop, market and sell software that runs on third party software and hardware platforms.

SMART AIM (Application Innovation & Migration) from Spanish Point is a cloud migration roadmap that produces a prioritised list of phased work packages for an Azure cloud migration and/or deployment. It offers real benefits, from cost savings and operational improvements to a future-proof platform that allows you to quickly take advantage of the benefits of the cloud. Whether you have a legacy application, a new application, or applications that are partly or fully cloud-based, Spanish Point has the experience and expertise to assist you.
