Modernizing complex applications


Modernization Routes

Before coming to Servoy, most of our customers have tried to modernize their applications via .Net or Java. The majority have a background in some kind of 4GL or RAD tool, while the remainder might have an older application in .Net or Java. Whatever routes have been explored, the road to modernization takes a lot of time and effort. When time-to-market or delivery of the project has become an issue, application developers find a solution with Servoy.


In a Nutshell

Servoy enables application developers to build screens rapidly, often by dragging and dropping (WYSIWYG), to attach business logic in a scripted language, and to deploy or launch for testing purposes in real-time without having to repeatedly compile and deploy.  Servoy empowers organizations to build enterprise grade-applications in record time.


Risk Reduction

Adopting a UX-first approach, in which customers or end-users are included from the first sprint, reduces risk in the final product. Involving the end-users ensures that the product satisfies demand at every step, with no surprises at the end of the project. Leading with the UX forces the project team to constantly deliver “consumable” pieces of the application, versus the old approach of developing in a silo.



Servoy competes mainly with a DIY approach where a company rebuilds their entire application from the ground-up. This might start with a .Net or Java stack with certain frameworks on top, an application server to manage the “state” of client, topped with a hand-coded HMTL5, CSS and Angular implementation. With less complex applications, customers look at low-code environments or even Customers who choose Servoy tend to have complex applications in need of modernization and the DIY approach is not practical.


The Servoy Way

Our approach consists of 3 pillars:

✔ A Rapid Application shell to modernize or build your applications in record time; 

✔ A standard deployment stack and pre-built components to get you started quickly;

✔ The Appsurance program to help your team mitigate any risk for this complex project.
