Appcelerator Migration Strategy

Technology continuously evolves, and new innovation brings new disruptive change. Whenever a software platform or product reaches its end of life, customers must assess their strategy for updating all affected applications. Axway, a leading provider of API Management and Integration software, has made the strategic business decision to sunset the Appcelerator Mobile Application Development Platform (MADP) in March of 2022. To minimize disruption, Axway has partnered with Anexinet to help customers overcome the challenges and leverage the opportunities of migrating applications to a new MADP. Naturally, this makes the uninterrupted delivery of products and services a challenge. But, more importantly, it presents an opportunity: the chance to make dramatic improvements and unlock new capabilities. As a proven Axway technology partner, Anexinet has deep experience designging, developing, and delivering mobile apps with the Appcelerator MADP and many other development platforms.

In just three weeks, our Appcelerator Migration Strategy kickstart helps your organization:

Migrate from Appcelerator Titanium to a best-of-breed technology platform
Achieve a modern, intuitive user experience (UX) with the new platform
Define all technical dependencies and considerations (e.g., data services, integrations, security, authentication, etc.)
Devise an ideal migration strategy based on the results of our technical analysis
Minimize risk by developing a phased, actionable plan and timeline for framework migration

Our Approach

The Appcelerator Migration Strategy Kickstart follows three key steps:

Our Approach

How it Works

lighted Brain

Application Overview

Gain an understanding of the application users and functionality.Meet with the product owners to understand who the current users are, use cases and functionality delivered. Conduct demos of the application to assess the current user experience and discuss user feedback. Review the application roadmap to understand current and planned enhancements and release schedule.

Key Activities

  • Identify and understand the users
  • Understand all the use cases supported
  • Review and define the current features and functionality
  • Review the application roadmap
  • Understand user feedback

Technical Analysis

Understand current architecture, dependencies and considerations.Meet with the application delivery and support team to conduct a current-state technical analysis of the application to understand the architecture, code quality, use of 3rd party libraries, integration services, data design, and security requirements.

Key Activities

  • Understand the current platforms and devices supported
  • High-level technical overview of the application architecture
  • Review current data design and integration services
  • Identify and define security and authentication requirements
  • Discuss technical considerations (e.g., connectivity, native features)

Recommendations, Plan & Next Steps

Present the preliminary analysis outputs and actionable plan.We create and provide recommendations and an actionable plan based on the functional requirements defined and technical analysis completed. The actionable plan is laid out in a phased approach identifying the resources and estimated timeline required to complete the migration.

Key Activities

  • Create and review recommendations (new platform, technical considerations, migration approach, support, etc.)
  • Develop an actionable plan (prioritized and phased tasks)
  • Identify and define the resources required to perform the migration
  • Define the estimated timeline to complete the migration
