Many leading organizations that have invested substantial time and money building a web content management (WCM) system to run their web site often face a crossroads. Do they continue to support their own custom-built application and extend it to address the needs of the business today, or do they look to purchase a commercial software product to address these requirements. This leads to a delicate stand-off between the web site business owners (usually marketing), the development team (usually in IT) and the Finance office.

Today, the most common approach is through the purchase of commercial software to layer atop existing infrastructure resources.

Maintaining business continuity is your highest priority.
In today’s commercial landscape, business continuity depends on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data across the organization – from operations to sales to fulfillment. Even a brief lapse in workload continuity can mean thousands of lost sales opportunities, disruption to production, and compromised customer trust.
The causes of those lapses can range from natural disasters to mechanical failure or human error. You need a data platform and a proactive disaster recovery (DR) strategy that will help you stay up and running in the event that your physical infrastructure is unavailable for any length of time.
Fulfilling orders, providing a high level of customer service, and keeping consumers engaged all depend on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data throughout your organization.
Above all, protecting customer data—especially personally identifiable information (PII) —is critical

Respond to customer feedback faster
Organizations are demanding greater flexibility from the software they use. Yet, most line-of-business applications are built on top of rigid commercial databases that make them difficult and expensive to deploy. By building applications on top of Amazon Aurora, a cost-effective database solution from Amazon Web Services (AWS), independent software vendors (ISVs) can get away from commercial databases and the hassles they create for end customers.
In this webinar, AWS Partner Network (APN) Premier Consulting Partner Onica will show you how to leverage Amazon Aurora to make it easier for customers to operate your software, in turn increasing sales. You will also learn how to leverage the breadth and depth of AWS services to improve developer productivity and become more responsive to customer feedback as a result.
Add more value to your business
Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) are turning to the cloud to modernize their applications and get rid of their commercial database dependencies to improve application performance, lower total cost of ownership (TCO), and reach new customers. DB Best delivers the established processes and technology ISVs need to accelerate the modernization of applications still running on commercial databases to Amazon Aurora. This enables your customers to quickly get up-and-running on the cloud and drive greater business value through Amazon Web Services (AWS).
View the webinar to learn how DB Best and AWS enable you to accelerate every stage of your application modernization journey – from evaluating the right migration path for your application, to following a proven and repeatable database migration process, to driving growth and reaching more customers.
Reduce costs and scale to meet customer expectations
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery models are being adopted faster than ever to meet business and consumer demand, prompting organizations to move their customer-facing applications to the cloud. As a result, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) need to modernize their applications to deliver the flexibility and scale customers expect, without the restrictions and high costs of running applications on commercial databases. mLogica provides deep industry expertise, backed by powerful engineering, to help ISVs quickly modernize their applications on Amazon Aurora and drive greater business value with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Register for our webinar to learn how mLogica and AWS can help you transform your business on the cloud, so you can deliver modern, high-performing solutions to your customers.
Modernize your applications quickly
Many organizations are finding their legacy technology to be inadequate due to its rigidity and high costs. In search of more flexible and cost-effective solutions, many are turning to the cloud. Most Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), however, still build their solutions on commercial databases that are expensive and time-consuming for their customers to deploy and maintain. This is a significant undertaking that can hinder adoption.
To address these challenges head on, ISVs can modernize their applications on Amazon Aurora, a database offering from AWS that combines the reliability and performance of commercial databases with the cost-effectiveness and flexibility of open source solutions. In this webinar, you will learn how Virtusa, an AWS Partner Network (APN) Premier Consulting Partner, can accelerate your application modernization journey and help you grow your business.
