Technology Upgrade/Migration & Transformation

  • Applications were initiated and developed in an ad-hoc fashion to meet particular business needs. Over time more and more of those kinds of applications were maintained and supported across the organization.

    • Standalone applications, without interface/integration with other applications/systems
    • Running on individual desktops or non-IT supported servers
    • Small in scale in terms of number of users and feature set
    • Duplicate data entry, inconsistent data and results

  • How to better support ongoing business needs at lower cost? Red River has successfully developed and applied its MCSR strategy for application management and transformation:

    • Migration: Migrate an application from one environment to another environment. Changes may be made to the application to adapt to the new environment
    • Consolidation: Consolidate one application into another existing application. Merge more than one application into a new application
    • Sustainment: Sustain an application in the current environment with the expectation of retirement within certain time frame
    • Retirement: Decommission an application from business use

Application Maintenance & Support

  • Red River offers application maintenance and support services to ensure on-going business continuity for our customers. Application maintenance includes various activities performed during the lifecycle of an application, such as application monitoring and health check, data backup and restore, as well as minor enhancements and improvements.
