The Project:

  • Migrate the database to an SQL Server
  • automatically generate an HTML5 application tailored to meet user and compliance requirements

The Results

  • Pilot project completed in 3 months, after which DataNovata was deployed within the client live environment

  • Client enabled to switch off the old server and eliminate associated legacy costs

  • DataNovata API was shareable with other applications

  • DataNovata application was fully compliant accessing the SQL server database

"It was difficult to picture any solution that could be applied to all our legacy archiving. In just three months it was apparent that we had found our Global solution for legacy applications. If we want to go to the cloud or swap our ERP system or just rationalize our estate, DataNovata is now our go to solution.”
